Saeb Erekat on Fire…Well, At Least His Pants


The epic evisceration of Chief Palestinian propagandist Saeb Erekat I posted a few weeks ago was apparently only part of his Conflict Zone experience. Following the interview was a Q&A with the audience, and while the questions were not nearly as bold as those he received from Tim Sebastian, his lies most certainly were.

Allow me to deal with the worst of them.

Israel engages in mass executions of peaceful protesters

We already know there are no mass executions and these peaceful protesters are really violent rioters with a bloodlust.

Note he makes this accusation right after speaking about a lung transplant. What he did not mention was how he received medical help in Israel. Clearly, he couldn’t, because how would that jibe with his narrative of a genocidal, cruel regime?

He doesn’t have any gripe with Judaism, and this is a territorial conflict

Except he is on record as attacking Jewish biblical figure Joshua, well before this so-called “territorial conflict.”

Saeb Erekat, the chief Palestinian negotiator over the weekend again ruled out the notion of Palestinian recognition of Israel as a Jewish state. Speaking at a Munich conference, on a panel with his Israeli counterpart Tzipi Livni, Erekat said the demand was unacceptable: “When you say ‘accept Israel as a Jewish state’ you are asking me to change my narrative,” he claimed, asserting that his ancestors lived in the region “5,500 years before Joshua Bin-Nun came and burned my hometown Jericho.

The Arabs and Muslims have been cowards not to have stood tall and confronted the “thugs, criminals and murderers” of ISIS

Actually, this is one of the truest things he has ever said, but a bait-and-switch nonetheless. He directs attention to ISIS but not Hamas, Islamic Jihad and other palestinian terrorist organizations who are equally “thugs, criminals and murderers.” Heck, he could also have mentioned Fatah, but that is his own political party!

The palestinians never threatened to dissolve the PA

Oh yes they did!

The PLO recognizes Israel

The PLO Central Council decided to suspend its recognition of the State of Israel back in October. Although a non-binding decision, it still shows that Erekat’s blanket statement that the PLO recognizes Israel is not the entire truth. So does the fact the PLO has never recognized Israel as a Jewish state.

Israel is an “Apartheid” state

Israels is not even close to being an Apartheid state as I have shown time and time again on here. You can also read this. Erekat’s references to Israeli security measures imposed on palestinian Arabs who are not citizens of Israel is disingenuous to say the least.
