Abbas: Peace Talks After UN Recognition
Arutz Sheva ^ | 10/10/12 | Elad Benari

Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas met Tuesday in Ramallah with representatives of EU countries in the Palestinian Authority and discussed with them the regional situation following the Arab spring and the PA’s position towards the peace process with Israel.

Abbas told the European representatives that the PA is ready to resume negotiations with Israel on the basis of the EU’s official positions. He noted that the PA will make use of these EU positions when it submits its recognition to the United Nations General Assembly.

He also stressed that the PA’s unilateral statehood bid to the UN does not mean eliminating the option of negotiations with Israel, but is rather a complementary measure designed to preserve the two-state solution. He claimed that Israel’s continued construction of Jewish communities in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem may bring an end to the option of a two-state solution.

Abbas said the PA is determined to achieve international recognition of “Palestine” in order "to change the status of Palestinian land from disputed territory to territory under occupation.”

“Once we receive the recognition of the UN General Assembly we will be ready to return to the negotiating table with the Israeli side to discuss any issues related to the final settlement," Abbas told the representatives.

Here's a counter proposal. Once you and your cronies get the hell out of Israel, we'll change the status of Judah and Samaria from "disputed territory" to part of Israel. Will a boot up your a@# help you along?

Notice how he says “Jewish” settlements instead of Israeli.
