Erekat: No Israelis within Palestinian Borders

The Palestinian Authority's Chief Negotiator, Saeb Erekat, thoroughly rejects Prime Minister Netanyahu's idea of allowing residents in Samaria and Judea to remain in their homes, under the sovereignty of a Palestinian state.

"He who would allow these settlers (sic) to be citizens of the (Palestinian) state, defeats the purpose of the state,"  PA sources said.

The principal message is, according to Saeb Erkat, "No settler (sic) will remain within the borders of a Palestinian state, because their communities are illegal."
