Here is a suggestion, which needs some finetuning, but gives the
requested points:
\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{pst-eucl}
\begin{document}
\def\mytheta{70\space}
\begin{pspicture}[showgrid](-5,0)(5,5)
\pstGeonode(0,0){O}(-3,0){B}(3,0){Y}
% alternative \pstGeonode(3.5;110){A}
\pstGeonode(! 180 \mytheta sub dup cos 3.5 mul exch sin 3.5 mul){A}
\pstCircleOA{O}{B}
\pstLineAB{O}{A}
\pstInterLC{O}{A}{O}{Y}{X1}{X2}
\nodexn{(X2)+(! \mytheta 3 div neg dup cos exch sin)}{X2'}
\pstInterLC{X2}{X2'}{O}{Y}{E1}{E2}
\pstInterLL{X2}{X2'}{O}{Y}{D}
\pstLineAB{X2}{D}
\pstLineAB{B}{D}
\end{pspicture}
\end{document}
