Fayyad: Israeli's haven't rolled back the occupation gene

A state of leftovers is not going to do it, outgoing Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad told The New York Times in a lengthy interview focusing on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict published Friday.
“I told [US] President [Barack] Obama the shack must come before the skyscraper,” Fayyad said. “The Israelis have not rolled back the occupation gene. Let’s make sure our Beduin population in the Jordan Valley has access to drinking water before we discuss final arrangements. This is a right-to-life issue for Palestinians.”  Fayyad resigned last month, ending months of tension between him and PA President Mahmoud Abbas.
