      Erekat Fumes Over Latest Israeli Construction Approval

      The Palestinian Authority (PA) accused Israel on Tuesday that it did not want peace, after the leftist Peace Now organization revealed that the Israeli government had approved plans to build 381 new homes in Givat Ze'ev, Samaria, located just five kilometers north of Jerusalem.

      The PA’s chief negotiator, Saeb Erekat, responded by telling the AFP news agency that the construction approval sent a clear message.
