On Saturday deputy PLC speaker Ahmed Bahar refused the Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas’ invitation to the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to deliver a speech at the PLC headquarters in Ramallah.
“This is against the aims of national unity,” Bahar said in a press release sent to MEMO. “This opposes Palestinian ethics and the principles of Palestinian politics.”
Bahar called on Abbas to allow the PLC speaker Aziz Dowaik to enter the PLC office instead of calling on the Israeli Prime Minister.
The London based newspaper Al-Quds Al-Arabi reported that Abbas said on Wednesday he was ready to deliver a speech in the Knesset and he also welcomed Netanyahu in delivering a speech before the PLC members in Ramallah.
