There is no lie big enough that Saeb “Massacre” Erekat, chief Palestinian negotiator and propagandist, won’t use in order to demonize Israel.
Yet while doing this, he has been benefiting from Israel.
Saeb Erekat, chief Palestinian negotiator with Israel for the past 20 years who also serves as secretary-general of the PLO’s executive committee, suffers from a very serious lung disease and is on the waiting list for a lung transplant in Israel or the United States
Erekat, 62, suffers from pulmonary fibrosis, which is characterized by the development of scars in lung tissue which makes it difficult for them to function properly. The disease manifests itself in shortness of breath, coughing and loss of the ability of the lungs to transfer oxygen to the body. He was diagnosed more than a year ago.
So far, Erekat has been treated with drugs, but a few months ago, drugs stopped being effective and his condition worsened dramatically.
Erekat began medical treatment in one of Israel’s hospitals in the center of the country, but doctors made it clear to him that he had to undergo a lung transplant in order to survive. Since then, he has been on the waiting list for a lung transplant.
So let’s get this straight. Erekat devotes his life to try having Israel destroyed. Such is his determination, he still does it while gravely ill. And he won’t let the fact we are providing him with medical care to save his life get in the way (reminscent of Hamas).
It may be his lung that is problematic, but he really has no heart.
Yet we provide him with the treatment. There’s a word for this.
Nope, not that one.
Update: From last year – while I assume he was receiving treatment in Israel.
PLO Secretary-General Saeb Erekat expressed dismay at the European Union for failing to support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement against Israel on Tuesday.
