Haaretz – A bitter confrontation broke out between the head of the Israeli negotiating team Yitzhak Molcho and chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat during their meeting in Jordan on Saturday, after Erekat refused to let a senior Israeli officer present the Israeli position on security arrangements.

An Israeli official familiar with the content of the talks said that, by all accounts, Erekat and Molcho exchanged harsh words in front of their stunned Jordanian hosts, with the argument reaching its peak when Prime Minister Netanyahu’s envoy asked to present Israel’s position on security arrangements.
