PLO Official Urges Palestinian Authority To Revoke Any Recognition Of Israel


saeb erekatA senior Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) official and the former head of the Palestinians’ team for negotiations with Israel, Saeb Erekat, is calling on the Palestinian Authority (PA) to re-examine its relations with Israel and to integrate the Hamas and Islamic Jihad terror groups into PLO institutions.

The Palestinian news agency Ma’an reported highlights from a 10-page document in which Erekat called to revoke any Palestinian recognition of the State of Israel and immediately cancel all economic and security cooperation between Ramallah and Jerusalem.

Erekat stressed that he was not calling to dismantle the PA, but that if the peace process remained at an impasse, the Palestinians should consider transferring the responsibility for the Palestinian population and internal matters in the West Bank onto Israel. Moreover, Erekat wrote, the Palestinians should never sign any peace deal with Israel that recognizes the latter as a Jewish state.

  1. In other words, ignore every single concession Israel has made since Oslo and go back to officially supporting the “Three No’s”. And yet when Israel says time and again that it has no true peace partner the world points a finger of blame at them for “Israeli Intransigence”.

  2. another of abbass ministry of bigots and peace haters. Recognizing Israel as Jewish state is prerequisite for any talk of peace.
