News flash for the ignorant. Abbas doesn’t want Israel to stop building within the settlements suburbs of J’lem any more than the Israelis living within them. It’s that simple, how else could he keep the game going, that being the eventual destruction of the state of Israel that Arafat schooled him so well in? KGS
NOTE: Why aren’t the journalists asking Western politicians why they continue to expect childish behavior from these Arab leaders? Do they hold such racist views as to believe that they can’t hold them to the same values and expectations that they do with the Israelis? The Tundra Tabloids thinks so.
Abbas: P.A. won’t continue talks without E.J’lem freeze
Following meeting with Egyptian President Mubarak, PA president says renewed negotiations will not be accepted “if there is no complete halt to settlements in all of the Palestinian territories including Jerusalem.”
The Palestinian Authority will not return to peace negotiations unless Israel agrees to stop building in east Jerusalem as well as in West Bank settlements, PA President Mahmoud Abbas said on Sunday, Reuters reported. Abbas’s comments came following a meeting with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in Cairo.
“Of course … if there is no complete halt to settlements in all of the Palestinian territories including Jerusalem, we will not accept,” said the PA president.
