Saeb Erekat was the recognizable Palestinian voice for decades.
He pushed peace through negotiation. A two State solution with a Palestinian homeland.
He believed in Arab States adopting democracy. He didn't believe the Israeli Palestinian conflict was religious and recognized Israel and it's right to exist side by side with Palestinians.
Saeb passed away this week from Covid19. As a reporter I knew him well, and conducted one of the last interviews with him this summer.
