Palestinian PM sees statehood by 2011

Palestinian PM sees statehood by 2011

Palestinian premier Salam Fayyad predicts a Palestinian state will be established by August 2011 through "positive facts on the ground," in an interview published yesterday in an Israeli newspaper.
"The birth of a Palestinian state will be celebrated as a day of joy by the entire community of nations," Fayyad told the Haaretz daily. "The time for this baby to be born will come," he said, "and we estimate it will come around 2011," the prime minister said. "That is our vision and a reflection of our will to exercise our right to live in freedom and dignity in the country (where) we are born, alongside the State of Israel, in complete harmony."
