Netanyahu blasts 'Palestinian Authority' for meeting with Iran

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu blasted 'Palestinian' chief bottle washer negotiator Saeb Erekat (pictured) for meeting with Iranian foreign minister Manouchehr Mottaki on Thursday in Sharm el-Sheikh.
"The Palestinian side has refused to allow the resumption of peace talks by placing pre-conditions on such a resumption," said Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's spokesman Mark Regev, referring to the Palestinian demand that Israel declare a total settlement freeze and accept a two-state solution before negotiations can be renewed.

"It appears, however, that they have no qualms and place no pre-conditions upon dialogue with the most extreme and violent enemies of peace."
Earlier Sunday, Erekat had played down the meeting.
"We saw each other, it was just a regular meeting," he said in a conversation with a reporter aired on Israel Radio, laughing off a suggestion that there was "normalization between Fatah and Iran."

He said he was dismayed that "two people shaking hands and meeting for 10 or 15 minutes," had hit the headlines.

"After all," he continued, "it's not the first time; it's not something new," noting that the two had met recently in Davos and Riyadh.
Two small comments. First, note the role of our mischievous 'friends' the Egyptians in the meeting's taking place.

Second, if you think about it, Erekat's doing the same thing that President Obama is doing, isn't he?

Its interesting the Palestinians see Iran as someone to talk to. Then in that light why the hell should Israel help to set up an Iranian base within striking distance of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv? That is the true logic of a Palestinian state.

What could go wrong indeed
