Headline: "Emphasized that occupation activities enforce apartheid facts on the ground – Erekat accuses Israel of incitement to kill the President [Abbas]"
"Erekat ( PA chief negotiator) described [Israeli Foreign Minister, Avigdor] Liberman's statements as 'impudent', and said that their aim was to incite to the murder and physical annihilation of President Abbas, as was the case with the late Martyr (Shahid) Yasser Arafat, who was murdered for no wrongdoing… Erekat declared again that the Palestinian Authority is not opposed to negotiations, and that it is prepared to return to the negotiating table on condition that settlement [activity] is stopped, that recognition is granted to a Palestinian state on the '67 borders, and that the prisoners are released."
