Erekat the liar strikes again

Saeb Erekat, the PA's official liar-in-chief, continues on his proud tradition in his comments on the letter written by Israel's foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman:

PLO official Saeb Erekat said Thursday that he had written to the US and Israel asking for clarification of a missive by the Israeli foreign minister slamming the president and calling for a new Palestinian leadership.

Erekat told Lebanese satellite channel Mayadeen that he intends to send more letters to international bodies to warn that President Mahmoud Abbas is in danger.

Israeli FM Avigdor Lieberman's letter to US, EU, Russian and UN leaders called for Palestinian elections to usher in new leaders.

"Due to Abbas' weak standing and his policy of not renewing the (peace) negotiations, which is an obstacle to peace, the time has come to consider a creative solution, to think 'outside the box,' in order to strengthen the Palestinian leadership," the controversial minister wrote.

Erekat said the letter entails incitement to kill Abbas.
The letter calls for new elections. In no way, shape or form does it call for his death. Luckily, I reproduced the entire letter a few days ago, so we can see yet again that Erekat lies as easily as he breathes.

Time to bring up my 2010 Erekat the Liar video:

Other posts proving his lies since then: Fisking an op-ed, his lie about Israel's being accepted to the UN, his bizarre charge that Qatar invests in Jewish settlements, his lies about the video I spoofed above, and his admitting that he lies all over the world.

And not once - literally never - does the media call him out on his lies. He is still a featured guest on CNN and elsewhere, where his constant lies are not questioned in the least.

Isn't that supposed to be the media's job? Well, yes - unless they agree with the agenda of the liar.
