Hamas-Fatah Chief Negotiator: Israel Must Accept Obama’s Lethal Plan
The chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat told reporters that Israel must accept Obama’s plan and hand over the Holy Land to the Hamas-Fatah alliance.
Obama proposed giving half of Jerusalem, the Wailing Wall, The Temple Mount, Old Jerusalem, and The Church of the Holy Sepulchre to Hamas-Fatah terrorist alliance this past week.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu must accept U.S. President Obama’s vision for Mideast peace if talks with the Palestinian Authority are to resume, chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat said on Sunday.
Erekat’s comments came in response to Israel’s rejection of the U.S. president’s support of a Palestinian state within 1967 borders, with Netanyahu saying that such a move would make Israel’s borders “indefensible.”
Earlier Sunday, Netanyahu’s top security adviser, Yaakov Amidror, reiterated the objection to a return to 1967 borders, saying that those borders would leave “too many Israelis out of Israel.”
Speaking to the Kuwaiti news agency KUNA on Sunday, Erekat said that an Israeli acceptance of Obama’s guidelines was essential if stalled negotiations were to resume, saying that as far as the Palestinians were concerned peace talks “actually aim at realizing this [Obamas’] objective, the establishment of the independent Palestinian state with these borders, along with swap of territories.”
“Now, Erekat said, “we would like to hear from Netanyahu about his stance regarding this principle, declared by President Obama.”
