GAZA, April 12 (UPI) -- Palestinian National Security Adviser Jibril Rajoub Tuesday condemned Israeli claims the Palestinian Authority is not committed to peace.

"Voice of Palestine" radio quoted Rajoub as saying the allegation amounts to "a propaganda campaign against us" to use as an excuse to cast aside the Sharm el-Sheikh agreements.

Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, in a joint news conference with U.S. President George Bush Monday in Texas, said the PA is not committed to the Sharm el-Sheikh understanding.

"It is impossible to resume the peace negotiations with the Palestinians, unless they go through a tough war against terror and dismantle the terrorist organizations' infrastructure," Sharon said.
