      Erekat Responds to Ya'alon's Words: Serious Threat

      Senior Palestinian Authority official, Saeb Erekat, resounded Saturday to a speech made by the Minister for Strategic Affairs Moshe Ya'alon, in which he said that a Palestinian state alongside an Israeli cannot be established because Abbas's views align with those of Hamas, who are sworn on the destruction of Israel.

      "These are serious threats being directed at Mahmoud Abbas, similar to the threats directed at Yasser Arafat," said Erekat.
