The spokesman for Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas on Monday rejected Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's offer to extend the settlement freeze in the territories for the PA's recognition of Israel as the national state of the Jewish people.

"The topic of the Jewishness of the state is not connected at all to the issue [of the building freeze]," said the spokesman.

Netanyahu had made the bold offer during his speech at the opening of the winter session of the Knesset earlier in the day.
