A senior Palestinian official said on Tuesday that Israeli and Palestinian officials will hold a security meeting in Jerusalem this week to discuss the security situation in the West Bank.But the message being given in Arabic is different:
Saeb Erekat, secretary general of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), who was speaking to Voice of Palestine Radio, did not give further details about the meeting.
However, a senior Palestinian official told Xinhua on condition of anonymity that the Palestinian delegation will convey a clear message to the Israeli side on the Palestinian commitment to agreements and treaties signed in the past between the two sides.
But, "if Israel kept storming the Palestinian-controlled territories, the Palestinian National Authority (PNA) would soon reconsider all these agreements," the official said.
Secretary of the Executive Committee of the PLO Dr. Saeb Erekat confirmed that a meeting will be held this week with the Israeli side in order to start the implementation of the Palestinian Central Council decisions.These two reports are seemingly based on the same radio interview!
The Central Council of the Palestine Liberation Organization decided to halt security coordination with Israel and move forward in international efforts to achieve all the Palestinian rights, as well as to continue the process of reconciliation with the "Hamas" movement.
The Central Council of the PLO is the second highest decision-making body of the Palestinians, after the National Assembly.
Erekat told the official Voice of Palestine network on Tuesday morning that the Palestinian delegation will meet with the Israeli side in Jerusalem in order to inform them of the start of implementation of the decisions of the Central Council.
Notice that the decision was made by the Central Committee of the PLO, not the PA, even though supposedly security is under the PA. It just shows once again that the idea that the PA was "democratically elected" is a joke, since it reports to and follows decisions of the self-appointed PLO.
We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
