"Benchmarks"? That Would Be 'Tuches' To Me

Israel, Palestinians, U.S. set benchmarks for talks

Israeli and Palestinian leaders are drawing up confidence-building steps under U.S. auspices to help guide talks they have agreed to hold every two weeks, U.S. diplomats said on Tuesday.

The effort is meant to build confidence between the parties by ensuring incremental progress on day to day issues, the diplomats said.

The benchmarks, sent to Washington for review, include such things as removing Israeli checkpoints in the occupied West Bank, expanding operations at Gaza border crossings and training Palestinian security forces.

This appears to be all 'tuches' to me.
