Abbas and pals want to de-Jew the areas of Judea and Samaria.That’s apartheid.
Yep, that’s apartheid. It also speaks of the inability of this Arab ‘leader’ to grow a pair and act like a statesman that he’s pretending to be. Demanding no building inside pre-existing settlements is akin to saying that no Jew can live in the area. KGS

Palestinian negotiator Nabil Sha’ath, PLO Member Hanna Amireh skeptic about resumption of talks without extension of West Bank construction freeze; US Mideast envoy, EU foreign policy chief set to arrive Thursday.
RAMALLAH, West Bank — Palestinian officials on Wednesday expressed skepticism about the resumption of peace talks and signaled they would accept nothing less than an extension of the West Bank settlement construction moratorium ahead of the scheduled arrival of US Mideast Envoy George Mitchell and European Union Foreign Policy Chief Catherine Ashton to the region on Thursday.
Veteran Palestinian negotiator Nabil Sha’ath said Israel should be blamed for any breakdown of the negotiations if it insists on expanding settlements on lands claimed by the Palestinians for their state.
