A senior Military Intelligence officer said that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is a legitimate peace partner, and that he has "consistently kept the peace and quiet," according to channel 10.

Speaking to MKs and ministers recently, Brigadier General Dror Shalom said "I know some of you might not like to hear this, but since 2004, there is a leader, Abu-Mazen (Abbas), who has generated  quiet and opposed terrorism."

He added that "there is a basis for a solution to the conflict."

Shalom added that "it is true that we are not the world's problem, but we are an easy target."
