Israel Radio: Palestinians say Abbas wrong - weapons have not been collected

Israel Radio: Palestinians say Abbas wrong - weapons have not been collected

Aaron Lerner Date: 19
April 2005

Israel Radio Arab Affair Correspondent Avi Yissakharov reported this
afternoon that PA head Mahmoud Abbas claimed in a meeting with Israeli
reporters that the PA has collected all the weapons held by "wanted"
Palestinians in Jericho and Tulkarem and that they will all soon be joining
the PA security forces.

Yissakharov noted that when he checked with Palestinian sources that they
all denied that this was the case and the Palestinians told him that while
the PA has made announcements regarding the collection of weapons that in
fact the weapons have yet to be collected.

Yissakharov suggested that Abbas may not have been intentionally deceiving
the Israeli reporters and instead may simply not be "informed".

In sharp contrast to the possibility that Abbas is simply clueless about
what is going on in the PA, the people at Israel Radio who summarized
Yissakharov's report for their website were aware that Yissakharov found
that Abbas was wrong but decided not to include that information in the
summary that appears on Israel Radio's website.

Instead, the website report only reports Abbas' claim.
