Saeb Erekat

Saeb Erekat, chief Palestinian negotiator in talks with Israel and a possible successor to Palestinian Authority (PA) head Mahmoud Abbas, has equated Israel's government with the Islamic State (ISIS) and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) published a list on Friday of flags which are banned to display during the upcoming 2016 Eurovision Song Contest in Sweden next month, including those of the Islamic State (ISIS) and the Palestinians. The decision has angered the Palestinians.

Saeb Erekat again lied about non-existent Palestinian "history" and condemned the Balfour Declaration, which recognized Israel's right to a Jewish national homeland in British-Mandate Palestine. He's also pretty upset at the British for enabling it in the first place.
