April 7, 2012 20:07

The PLO Saturday dismissed a call by former minister, MK and peace negotiator Yossi Beilin to dismantle the Palestinian Authority.

Beilin, in an article published in Foreign Policy magazine, called on PA President Mahmoud Abbas to dissolve the PA and "return daily control to Israel."

Addressing Abbas, Beilin wrote: "Do not let Prime Minister [Binyamin] Netanyahu hide behind the fig leaf of the Palestinian Authority - impose upon him, once again, the responsibility for the fate of 4 million Palestinians."

Hana Amireh, member of the PLO Executive Committee, dismissed Beilin's call, saying it would be tantamount to "political suicide."
