Erekat Criticises PA, Calls For Re-examination of Peace Process

By Circarre Parrhesia – IMEMC & Agencies – February 20, 2011

Following his resignation as Chief Negotiator for the Palestinian Liberation Organization, Saeb Erekat has, on Sunday, called for a re-examination of the Palestinian Authority.

Erekat, speaking to the military run Israel Radio, stated that the PA had become inefficient, and should re-examine all issues regarding the peace process with Israel, including the possibility of land transfer.

Erekat’s statement comes a little over one week after his resignation as Chief Negotiator for the PLO. Erekat resigned on February 12, 2011, following the release of the Palestine Papers by Doha’s al-Jazeera Network and the British daily, the Guardian.

Erekat initially claimed that the papers were a fabrication, but later acquiesced and tendered his resignation, as the source of the leak was attributed to his office. Although Erekat changed his stance, and admitted the legitimacy of the leaked documents, he maintains that the context of the releases was distorted.

  1. Mahmoud Abbas is a total failure and must be removed for the sake of Palestine.
    To keep him in power will mean, that Palestine will be swallowed up by the Zionist criminals and wiped off the map.
    Get rid of this worthless stooge and fast.

  2. Here they go again… he ALREADY resigned.. what the hell is he doing speaking about the PA when we all know what a double edged sword it is.. they have no intention of helping the Palestinians, just their own selfish selves, like ALL those who amerika clones.. vacillating back and forth sure looks, to me, like they don’t know where they are…. he is done.. there are reports that the routes that are israeli guarded into Gaza will soon be opened BOTH ways.. me thinks they know their demise is imminent.. they are dead meat and the stench of their rot is already manifesting.
