Skip to comments.Palestinian leader turns to Putin for Palestinian state, dumps US and Israel as peace partners
Posted on 01/25/2014 8:11:00 AM PST by kindred
Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) launched his diplomatic intifada against Israel and exit from the Kerry peace initiative Thursday, Jan. 23, from Moscow. His meetings with President Vladimir Putin and Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev marked his breakaway from the US-led peace process with Israel, four months before it was due to expire, and signaled his bid for Russian backing for a Palestinian state. The Palestinian leaders defection caught both Secretary of State John Kerry and Prime Minister Binyamin unprepared and surprised their intelligence agencies. Putin and Abbas almost certainly planned in advance to drop their bombshell on the day both Kerry and Netanyahu were otherwise engaged at two international events in Switzerland, Geneva 2 on Syria and the World Economic Forum. For the Russian leader it was a chance to show the international community and the Obama administration that he was several steps ahead of the game on the three hottest Middle East issues Irans nuclear program, the Syrian civil conflict and the Palestinian bid for statehood......

Good, maybe we can now stop giving them billions of our tax dollars.
Not as long as the rats control the senate, headed up by the neo Nazi Reid.
Abbas has always been a terrorist.
This is disappointing. I thought Putin had backed away somewhat from these deals with the Muslim terrorists. I suppose he figures this will endear him to the EU.
When all is said and done, even Putin can’t create a fake “ state “ for a fake “ people” on someone else’s land. Nor do I think he will really try. Russia’s further expansion In the Mideast will be Egypt again now that Obsma screwed up trying to install the terrorist Muslim brothers gang in Cairo. Actually I think Saudi is another place to watch very carefully. It’s the big prize anyway. Egypt ( and especially “ Palestinians”) could be tools for Russia but they’re also supersized liabilities. Saudi and the gulf “ states” is where Putin is headed
I am hoping that Israel will stand up and tell the world that all land for peace deals are over and that obamantion can eat it and die for all they care. Putin, obamantion, the terrorists nations of the middle east and all hateful democrats can eat it and die the death of the wicked for what they have done to destroy both Israel and conservative America.
I believe American conservatives should now secede from the regime and build a fence on the south and the north and the divide between democrats and free America to keep the communist left out of our nation so we and our children can keep our constitutional liberties and save America from the hate fill Nazi left wing fascist thieves and liars.
Snubbed. Lovin’ it. There goes his hoped-for peace price to re-launch his WH aspirations...
Putin now would be stupid to do this...with all the Islamic Terrorist threat already in Russia...Russia would be committing suicide. The Palis will be training the Chechens and Ossetians
No kidding. Very hard to understand since Russia, itself, is a target. Maybe he’s trying to find a way to gain insight, but it’s still a crazy thing to do.
We gave Abbas money just weeks ago, I believe 50 million.
How Obama can give money like that away without congresses approval means he has a slush fund.
I like that Horse face Kerry has egg all over his face.
Fact is the pallies have had better deals they turned down including Ehud Barak giving them everything, and they turned it down.
The Pallies are welfare Queens, the EU, rich Oil Shieks and the Americans have given them billions, billions more to Hamas,and yet their people never see change, it goes into the corrupt leaders Swiss bank accounts.
The problem is the don’t recognize 1 Jewish state amid 22 Muslim states, they don’t accept the 23 state solution, they want a Jew and Christian free middle east. Death to all the Infidels is not just their religious belief, but their political belief.
It’s not surprising to me that Kerry and Obama were
blindsided, it does surprise me that Israel had
no idea, or did they?
I’ll bet that Marine would just love to deck him
Osetians are Christian.
