      Danon: Sunday a Rehearsal for September

      Member of Knesset Danny Danon (Likud) said Sunday evening that Sunday's Arab violence was a general rehearsal for September, when the Palestinian Authority intends to have the United Nations General Assembly declare it unilaterally to be a sovereign state. Speaking at a gathering of activists in Tel Aviv, the World Likud leader added, "I hope that Western leaders are watching the news and seeing who we are dealing with."

      Danon called on Chairman Shaul Mofaz of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee to hold an urgent hearing on lessons learned from the demonstrations and to present a program of security preparation for September.
