Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told visiting U.S. Vice President Joe Biden on Monday that recent comments by Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas were proof that he does not want peace.
According to Kol Yisrael radio, Netanyahu made the comments during his dinner meeting with Biden at the Prime Ministers Residence on Monday night.
Netanyahu reportedly complained to Biden about Abbass comments on Saturday, in which he said that there will be no peace with Israel unless all his preconditions are met.
These comments, Netanyahu told Biden, were proof that Abbas is not prepared to make the necessary decisions that would bring about peace.
Abbas told a delegation on Saturday that there will be "no peace between us and Israel" without eastern Jerusalem as the capital of the future Palestinian state.
Abbas added that he heard that the Israelis had refused to mention Jerusalem in any talks or negotiations.
"Let them say whatever they say. Unless it is mentioned clearly and marked in big fonts that it is the capital of the state of Palestine, there will be no peace with them and I want them to hear this," he declared.
"Our language is understandable. We have been hearing lots of talks about the capital here and there. The capital is Jerusalem and its surroundings in Jerusalem which were occupied in 1967," he said, highlighting that he is adhering to a stance that has long been official policy.
"We have a right even though we are weak in the world. We will continue to demand our rights and we will realize them," said Abbas.

Chris37 to Netanyahu- Neither does Biden.
He seems to dig swine. Remember the hissy fit that he had over his Hawaiian pork state dinner. Gosh, why did these Jooos! have a problem with pork?
Biden to Netanyahu: “I like pie. Do you like pie? My favorite ice cream is Rocky Road. Mrs. Obama bought me a puppy for Kwanza. He is a boy puppy. I named him Reginald. Mrs. Biden keeps him at the observatory while I’m travelling in the zoom-zoom plane!”
Netanyahu to Self: Why did they foist this cretin on me again? Is this some new insult from Obama? Is this a rhetorical question?
Definitely not "breaking news". Sensible people have known for decades that the Palestinian leaders are terrorists who do not want peace, and that has never changed. Negotiations are simply continuations of the war by other means.
