Saeb Erekat, chief negotiator for the Palestine Liberation Organization, rejected on Monday the government's demand that the Palestinians recognize Israel as a Jewish state. In an interview with Israel Radio, Erekat said that "no state in the world connects its national identity to a religious identity."
No state except for the Arab States like Iran and Saudi Arabia and more specifically his own. Check out the Palestinian Basic Law (that's what they call it) Chapter 1, Article 4:
1. Islam is the official religion in Palestine. Respect and sanctity of all other heavenly religions shall be maintained.
2. The principles of Islamic Shari'a shall be the main source of legislation.
3. Arabic shall be the official language.
So where is the media to challenge Erekat? One need no do a lot of digging to find this out. Heck, I found it.
