Israel is the real threat to Middle East stability, not Iran or the lack of democracy

Headline: “Erekat: The actions of the Israeli government are the true danger threatening the security and stability of the region”
“Saeb Erekat, member of the Fatah Central Committee and head of the Palestinian negotiating team, condemned the Israeli government’s construction of 24 settlement [housing] units on the Mount of Olives in East Jerusalem…
This was during meetings which Erekat held separately with the representative of the European Union in Palestine, Christian Berger; with a parliamentary delegation from Chile; with the deputy to the American Consul General; and with the Japanese ambassador, Takeuchi.
Erekat emphasized that the response to the Israeli government must come from the meeting of the Quartet which is scheduled for the 5th of the month in Munich, through recognition of the Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital, on the borders of June 4, 1967…
Erekat emphasized that the actions of the Israeli government… have led to the ruin of the peace process, and are now pushing the region into the furnace of violence, anarchy, extremism and bloodshed. He noted that the true danger to the region, to its security and stability, is the continuation of the Israeli occupation and continued Israeli activity, not the absence of democracy or Iran. Therefore, anyone seeking security and stability in the region must first of all dry up the swamp of Israeli occupation.”
