Palestinian Prime Minister Salaam Fayad will meet on Sunday with leaders of Israel's parliament as part of a "broadening" dialogue between the two peoples, a spokesman said Saturday. Fayad will meet with the speaker of the parliament, Dalia Itzik, as well as the chairman of the influential Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, Tzahi Hanegbi, and seven other lawmakers from various parties, said a spokesman for Itzik, Ilan Ostheld. The meeting is part of Itzik's efforts to "broaden the dialogue between Israelis and Palestinians," Ostheld said. Itzik had hosted Fayad at her Jerusalem residence two months ago. Israel has tried in recent months to bolster Fayad, his Western-backed government and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in facing the Islamic Hamas group, which seized control of the Gaza Strip in June.
