Abbas says he won’t make concessions on Jerusalem
Associated Press ^ | Jan 11, 2013 12:51 PM EST | Dalia Nammari

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas sent a defiant message to Israel’s leadership and U.S. mediators Saturday, telling cheering supporters that the Palestinians “won’t kneel” and won’t drop demands for a capital in east Jerusalem.

Abbas’ unusually fiery speech highlighted the wide gaps between him and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the outlines of a peace deal. It also raised new doubts about the chances of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry to bridge those gaps in coming weeks and come up with a framework for an agreement.

Abbas adopted tough positions in the wide-ranging speech, saying that “there will be no peace” without a Palestinian capital in east Jerusalem and that he would not recognize Israel as a Jewish state.

“Unusually fiery” speech, AP? The ones you ignore and/or cover up are way more fiery. This is the real Abbas and has been the whole time.

There should be NO Palestinian State , no West bank , No Gaza . Just a Greater Israel ; from the Sinai to the Littany River , from the sea to the Jordan , and all the heights of Golan . Screw the Arabs , they have no legitimate claims , just as islam has no legitimate claims upon Jerusalem or the Temple Mount . Get rid of al Aqsa .

He can refuse to make concessions about Jerusalem as long as he wants.
It is not his to concede.
And never was.
And never will be.

He should be brought up on charges and shot.
End of file.

Abbas’ unusually fiery speech...

That's what Lefties (like our "news" media) call speeches by one they consider 'on their side'.

If a conservative or an Israeli made the same speech (no concessions), it would be labeled "controversial". Anything a conservative says or does is 'controversial' to a Leftie.

Abbas was elected...elected to a four year term, what 10 years ago? He’s still the leader? But there have been no more elections? Well, except the one that put Hamas in charge and kicked Abbas out...Tell me again what his authority is. None? He speaks for nobody? Oh. Got it.

That’s true. The real term for speeches such as those by Abbas should be “venomous”.

That’s the first good news from the Palestinian terrorists in years. The angrier they sound, the less likely Israel is to make yet another bad deal where Israel gives up something real and receives empty promises in return.

Yes, Israel needs the widest possible defensible borders, including Gaza, the West Bank, and the Golan Heights. Wish they hadn’t given back Sinai.

And a shame what has become of Ramallah, once a Christian enclave until Arafat, the PLO, and other terrorist thugs moved in.

Exactly. He’s is no position to grant or withhold concessions. The emperor, sodaspeak, has no clothes.

Israel will not have peace until she liberates Palestinian-occupied Judea and Samaria.

Why should he? I’m sure he expects the Obamites to force whatever concession out of the Israelis that the terrorist and murderers require.

There is one page that the Israeli’s should take from the isBlamists (sicKos)... the “Ratchet Effect” should be engaged vis-a-vis Jerusalem and all of Israel - once a land becomes Israeli, then it should ALWAYS FOREVER MORE be Israeli.

I agree but, You and most of us know very well that the PLO have lots of support, the UN most of Europe, the power that be in the US and most of the rest of the world, and who do Israel have? well, not many, Canada for now, perhaps Australia and NZ and can’t think of to many others, can you? Red in a European news paper this morning in a obit for Sharon, that what he is most remembered for is that massacre up in Lebanon. God help us all

There will not be peace until one side is totally destroyed.

One side? If the Israelis are destroyed, that will certainly guarantee more war.

Gee, Abbas won't negotiate...

Sounds familiar.

Harry Reid (on numerous opportunities to vote on ways to budget/keep government opn): Ain't gonna happen".

BarAAAAAAAK! Obama on same issues: "I'll veto it"
