Member of PA talks team: We will never recognize Israel as Jewish state

A member of the Palestinian negotiation team, Nabil Sha'ath, said in Ramallah, "The Palestinian Authority will never recognize Israel as the Jewish state because such a declaration will negate the right of the Palestinian refugees to return to their homes."


Sha'ath said that the Palestinian negotiating team rejected Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's offer to discus this matter at the next meeting between the sides at Sharm a-Sheikh. He noted, "The PA does is not opposed to the fact that there will be a Jewish majority in Israel." (Ynet)
