Saeb Erekat, Peace Partner: "Punish Israel"

Remember Saeb Erekat's "Natufian origin" statement?

He's upping it:

...Erekat flew to Munich for a symposium about the Middle East peace process at which he had a heated argument with Livni.

Erekat explained that the reason for the argument was her insistence that Palestinians must recognize Israel as a Jewish state.

“I told her in front of the whole world that we will not change our history, our religion or our civilization,” Erekat said. “We are the lawful sons of Palestine; we will not accept Israel as a Jewish state”.

He added: “I informed Livni that Israel must apologize for Palestinian refugees, because they weren’t displaced by a volcano or a tsunami, but by the establishment of Israel. They should apologize to them and solve their issue on the basis of the Arab Peace Initiative and international decisions.”

“Livni accused us of not wanting peace, and I told her that Israel is racist against Palestinians in ways that did not happen in South Africa. The world should rise against this racist regime, hold it accountable and punish it,” he added.


Such wonderful peace partners.


Thanks to IMRA. ^

I find that insulting!

The Germans have never apologized for what they did to the Herero when they colonized South West Africa.

Truth be told, in the Palestinian Arabs case, its the other way around. Israel doesn't owe them anything nor should it!

And Saeb Erekat can take a hike when he finds Israel's price for peace too high to swallow - incidentally backed by 77% of Israelis.

There is not going to be peace around the corner any time soon.
