The Palestinians accuse al-Jazeera

Palestinians today accused the al-Jazeera in Qatar to serve as a "device" for their "charging" their strategy against Israel and the United States, after the revelations of the chain, they have found highly inappropriate.
"This series they broadcast boring, we know how to respond," said President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah before a crowd of fans about hundreds of "confidential documents" on the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations from 1999 to 2010, that Al-Jazeera has been broadcasting Sunday night through Wednesday.
"Nobody in the world can force us to abandon our rights to a meter of our land, especially Jerusalem," assured Mr. Abbas, while documents show the channel as the Palestinian negotiators were willing to make concessions in 2008 unpublished on East Jerusalem and the right of return of refugees to Israel in 1948.
In Ramallah, protesters burned pictures of the Emir of Qatar Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, and emblems associated with Al-Jazeera of Israeli flags.
Chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat accused the channel to be ready to "a campaign to Liberation Organization (PLO) in order to overthrow the Palestinian Authority because it refuses to resume negotiations as that the settlement continues, "and insists on recognition of the Palestinian state.
She "runs a plan on behalf of Benjamin Netanyahu (Israeli Prime Minister), Avigdor Lieberman (his Minister of Foreign Affairs) and Washington," said Mr. Erekat, saying he was "charging and punish "the Palestinians for their" resistance "and calling Al Jazeera" instrument "of this policy.
"Al-Jazeera has ignited Tunisia, Lebanon and various Arab countries," he added, referring to protests in the country, widely covered by the channel.
Requested by the AFP on this stream of criticism, the Al-Jazeera has wished to make any comment.
