PLO official: "Israel canceling Oslo would be a great service to our people"

Palestine Today reports that Rafat Saleh, member of the Executive Committee of the PLO, welcomes Israeli statements that the UN declaration stunt would cancel the existing agreements between Israel and the PLO.

He said that such threats don't scare him and the PLO is determined to go to the UN and to keep going after September in order to gain their "rights."

Saleh added, "If Israel announced cancellation of the agreements, they will do a great service to our people, who will continue their struggle for the salvation of the occupation."

Isn't it great when PLO leaders tell the world that their people, who have been living under autonomy for well over a decade now, and whose entire economy is utterly dependent on these very same peace agreements, prefer war to peace?
