Former chief Palestinian Authority negotiator Saeb Erekat told Army Radio that Israelis should not be afraid of democracy in the Arab world. Democracy is the "main support system for peace," he said on Sunday.

The long-time PA official added that events in Egypt "mark a turning point in Arab history." He explained that two things are needed for the region: Peace between Israel and Palestinians, and democracy in the Arab world."
