The foreign ministers of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) called on Palestinians to "turn the clock backwards" in Gaza, and return the Gaza Strip to the conditions prior to Hamas's violent takeover last month, Israel Radio reported Thursday overnight. The UAE ministers published their joint statement following a discussion they held in the Saudi town of Jeddah, on the shore of the Red Sea.
