MK Ben-Eliezer: Abbas loyal partner to Israel
In a debate between Environmental Protection Minister Gilad Erdan (Likud) and MK Binyamin Ben-Eliezer (Labor), Erdan said there is a non-direct line of communication with the Palestinians "But as Abbas inaugurate squares named after suicide terrorists once a week, I am not convinced the Palestinians are pursuing peace."


Former Defense Minister Ben-Eliezer commented on the subject, saying that "Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is a brave man. I can clearly say this is a man I can shake hands with and negotiate with right away." (Ynet)
