Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas warned on Friday against Israel using peace talks as a cover to expand settlements in Judea, Samaria, and Jerusalem, AFP reported.
Abbas was speaking in Morocco at a meeting of the Al-Quds (Jerusalem) Committee. The meeting comes days after Israel announced tenders for construction of more than 1,800 new homes in regions which the PA claims for a future state.

If you want more peace, you’ll want Israel to expand its reach.
Exactly correct. And it’s long past time for Mossad to deliver this murderous thief to his 72 waiting Virgins. May they all be as beautiful as hillarypelosi or a camel.
