      Ayalon: Ready to Debate Erekat

      Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon on Sunday invited senior PA negotiator Saeb Erekat to debate him publicly in the electronic media. The debate would be direct, unedited, and would give Erekat the opportunity to say whatever is on his mind.

      Ayalon also said that he was prepared to promise Erekat that Israel would not consider the debate to be an element of direct negotiations, which the PA has eschewed.
