Veteran PA Official Erekat Joins Election Campaign

erekatVeteran PA (Palestinian Authority) official and negotiator Dr. Saeb Erekat has joined Israel’s election fever, sending a clear message to voters. Erekat is an elder statement in the PA, having served as a close confidant to Yasser Arafat.

Erekat told the media the PA is closely monitoring the elections in Israel and for them, it is clear that Israeli voters must now decide if they wish to “become partners or remain occupiers”.

“This is the Israelis’ time to choose and I hope they don’t choose the settlements, they choose peace, they don’t choose dictates, they choose negotiations,” he said. “We want the Israelis to elect a partner that will make peace with us and recognize the two-state solution” he told Ynet.

He stressed that the elections in Israel do not compel any change on the part of the PA. Erekat explained efforts to have a resolution passed in the United Nations Security Council to set a November 2016 deadline for an Israeli withdrawal from all of Yehuda, Shomron and areas of Yerushalayim continue despite elections.

  1. Hey there you fool, you’re talking peace and land and two ststes side-by-side?? that is yesteryear’s mantra! You were given Gaza and what did you turn it into? One big launch pad for attacking us! You’ve shown how you can’t be trusted to live peacefully with us side-by-side! Why do you think our people would wish to continue that path and give you more launch sites to attack from? Get real, you murderous barbarian.
