The Palestinian Authority (PA) needs to know that there are two sides to every coin, said Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovich on Saturday in defense of the government's approval of 3,000 new housing units in Jerusalem and the West Bank.

"PA President Mahmoud Abbas was wrong in his address to the United Nations," Aharonovich said at a weekly cultural event in Ramat Hasharon. "Abu Mazen (Abbas) made a speech full of hate, and it is impossible to achieve peace with him," he continued.

"Those who violate an agreement need to know that there are two sides to every coin," he asserted.

"There is a national agreement on a united Jerusalem and settlement blocs" he added. "Wadi Ara may be included in a land swap in the future."
