Geneva Initiative flop

The founders of the Geneva Initiative have been running a video campaign of senior Palestinians talking about how they support peace.

It seems the Palestinians who were video'ed now think they are being portrayed falsely as if they are apologizing to Israel. According to Yisrael Hayom newspaper, and many others if you look around online, they are pulling their support for the campaign, or at least clarifying their stance. They don't like they way they are being portrayed as being apologetic, but if anyone needs to apologize it would be Israel needing to apologize to the Palestinians for the oppression during the occupation.

The Geneva Initiative people say that nobody has pulled out of the campaign and it was a misunderstanding and all is ok.

What were they thinking when they were reading the scripts? How did the left-leaning Geneva people make such a silly mistake?
