Saeb has a cow
negotiator bottle washer
Saeb Erekat went ballistic over the weekend at a suggestion by Czech President Milos Zeman that the Czech Republic's embassy be moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem
Czech President Milos Zeman’s proposal to move the Czech Embassy from Tel Aviv
to Jerusalem prompted Saeb Erekat, chief negotiator in the peace talks with
Israel, to send a letter of protest to Prague stating that such a move would
undermine the peace process.
Zeman publicly voiced his views on the
subject at the opening of the annual Days for Israel forum in Hradec Kralove in
East Bohemia last week.
According to the Czech news agency CTK, Erekat
has asked the Arab League and other Arab organizations to call extraordinary
meetings at the ministerial level to support the Palestinian stance.
Czech Republic is going to early elections later this month, and Zeman said that
he will try to persuade the new prime minister and foreign minister to consider
moving the embassy to Jerusalem.
Notwithstanding the political turmoil in
his country, the Czech president arrived in Israel on Sunday at the start of a
four day official visit.
Wasn't Saeb the guy who claimed to have offered us 'the biggest Yerushalayim ever'? Maybe he only meant so long as it isn't our capital?
