PA TV News reports on Fatah official’s ‎comparing Netanyahu to IS

Official PA TV News report on a ceremony marking the birthday of the Prophet [Muhammad] in Jericho, which was attended by Fatah Central Committee member Saeb Erekat.
Official PA TV reporter: "[Fatah Central Committee and] PLO Executive Committee member Saeb Erekat said there was no difference between the terrorism practiced by Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi's gang [ISIS] and Israeli terrorism, and that the elimination of terrorism required the drying out of the settlements. At a ceremony in the Jericho district marking the anniversary of the birth of the Prophet Muhammad, [Erekat] added that the piracy of the occupation, the withholding of tax money and the numerous threats will not prevent our leadership and people from continuing to stand firm, adhering to our national rights and establishing an independent state with Jerusalem as its capital."
