Netanyahu: Rather than soothing international public opinion, Abbas should choose between Hamas and peace with Israel.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas released a special message on Sunday in Arabic and in English on the occasion of Israel's Holocaust Remembrance Day, in which he decried the murder of Jews in the Holocaust as "the most heinous crime against humanity in modern history.
This is the first time a Palestinian president has ever made such a public declaration.

He’s still in the process of creating that “unity government” with Hamas though.
I’ll bet the statement doesn’t read the same in Arabic as it does in English.
I wonder who suggested he do that — and what the incentives were.
Why's that, did Hitler murder some moslems by mistake?
Yea, probably heinous that anyone cares about the Jews, or that Hitler did not succeed.
Nasser made peace with Israel, protected vacationing Jews in Egypt to the benefit of both nations, and passed it on President after President, until Obama's Arab Occupy trashed the benefits.
So it can be done, ...don't think Abbas will do it though.
...b/c Hitler didn't finish the job, right, Abbas?
You clowns aren't fooling anyone.
Oh, not ABBA from Waterloo, of course not!
But murdering Jews by your insane suicide bombers is perfectly okay
What a phony
It was bad, but so was the holocaust in Ukraine
“Abbas has been accused of being a Holocaust denier by Israeli officials in the past, mainly due to claims made in his doctoral dissertation, published as a book in 1983, titled The Other Side: The Secret Relationship Between Nazism and Zionism.”
People usually have to defend their dissertation and do,
now will Abass deny and revoke his dissertation, and does that mean his Degree from a Russian University is going to be rescinded?
This is not a real Come to Jesus moment for this Muslim.
The Muslim religion encourages lying to the infidel.
Also, with the EU, Egypt and the US labeling Hamas as a terrorist organization our foreign welfare to the lazy Pallies is in jeopardy of being cut off. Abbas wouldn’t want that to happen, so a little lying is easy for him.
"Ill bet the statement doesnt read the same in Arabic as it does in English."
If it does, he's a dead man walking who will, at best, survive as long as he's useful in helping make arrangements with Hamas.
It looks to me like the early stages leading up to the “Confirmation of the Covenant”.
nice remark but... he just officially joined up with the Kill All the Jooos wing of the Islamic Party
and he’s maintained exactly that position anyway for all these years, he just didn’t actually join with Hamas. now he has.
so there can be NO question whatsoever about Abbas. The thing we need to do is squeeze all our American tax money out of his thieving (and murderous) hide, and then send him ASAP to Alluh
he can collect his “rewards” there...
Abbas or if you like his Alias Mazen is the same guy who financed the Munich Massacre, so he is himself a potential war crimes defendant.
The PA is the municipal arm of the PLO who promised in the 1980’s in one of those peace treaties to amend their charter calling for the destruction of Israel.
Now they want Israel, just without the Jews living in it.
I say that because they rejected Jews becoming citizens of a Pally state, if they live on soil that becomes under Pally control.
Seemed like Israel felt peace meant Abbas could have a few thousand Jewish citizens like Israel has 1.25 million Arab citizens as part of Israel’s culture.
No Abbas wants his country to be ethnically cleansed that to him is peace.
Bibi has FINALLY broken off these silly “take their land and kill the Joooos” negotiations!
so there is yet hope for Israel...
It really, really looks like the good Lord is watching over Israel, that they did not get suckered into another land give=-away for a fake “peace”
one more land giveaway and Israel is done for, since the enemy is trying to grab the high ground in the center of the country (so they can toss their bombs conveniently down on the little Jooos below).... plus the defensive border strip along the Jordan..................the two pieces of land MOST NECESSARY if Israel is to be able to defend herself
very clever of the IslamoNazis, especially since they have their guy in the WhiteHut just now...
but, they blew it. they let their true intentions become so damned OBVIOUS! That even Bibi had to realize the danger of continued “negotiations” with these murderous terrorist thugs. Thank Heaven the “piece negotiations” danger is done with now. Had the IslamoNazis been just a little more cleaver in hiding their true intentions, Israel might have gotten suckered (and Pressured) into a suicidal “deal”
Abbas will be viewed as a sellout by Hamas and could be dead in a matter of days.
What did he get paid to say that, and did I pay?

I admit, this statement from te holder of a Phd from Patrice Lumumba University, on "The Secret Relationship Between Nazism and Zionism, doesn't impress me. Others will comment on the propensity for Muslims, radical Muslims if you prefer, to lie in furtherance of their objectives.
Kerry and the President will be impressed. Good thing a former President included in the Oslo agreements, with Israel's approval, amnesty for crimes committed prior to the agreements. Though he's best known for the Olympic operation, I suspect without amnesty he would have shared a cell with Yasser, his immediate superior. Yes, shared a cell, Israel doesn't execute mass murderers. Unless they get into larger numbers than the Palestinians have achieved. Not for lack of trying.
That was for the English-speaking listeners, the Arabic version though?

President Abbas: Holocaust is the Most Heinous Crime in Modern Era
RAMALLAH, April 27, 2014 (WAFA) - In response to a question on the occasion of Holocaust Day, raised in conversation with Rabbi Marc Schneier, President Mahmoud Abbas said that: what happened to the Jews in the Holocaust is the most heinous crime to have occurred against humanity in the modern era. He expressed his sympathy with the families of the victims and many other innocent people who were killed by the Nazis.
President Abbas stressed that the Holocaust is a reflection of the concept of ethnic discrimination and racism which the Palestinians strongly reject and act against.
‘The world must do its utmost to fight racism and injustice in order to bring justice and equality to oppressed people wherever they are.
[and here’s the buried lead]
The Palestinian people, who suffer from injustice, oppression and denied freedom and peace, are the first to demand to lift the injustice and racism that befell other peoples subjected to such crimes.’
‘On the incredibly sad commemoration of Holocaust Day, we call on the Israeli government to seize the current opportunity to conclude a just and comprehensive peace in the region, based on the two states vision, Israel and Palestine living side by side in peace and security.’
Mahmoud Abbas: Still A Holocaust Denier
The New York Times says the Palestinian leaders position shifted. It didnt.

PLO President Mahmoud Abas & Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh to reconcile governments (photo credit: IDF, World Economic Forum)
What possessed moderate Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to suddenly join forces with Hamas chief Ismail Haniyeh, whose organization is bent on Israel’s annihilation? As for the timing, it was even more puzzling - it came smack in the middle of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s apparent breakthrough in the clash between Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu over the release of Israeli-Arab terrorists. The latest Abbas gambit has exposed the Palestinian leader’s goal of seeking an imposed UN solution, rather than a U.S. brokered peace accord.
[hold your nose, HuffPo!]
Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri told Reuters: “The recognition of Israel by the president of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, is not new. What is important is that Hamas did not and will never recognise Israel.”
Mahmoud Abbas: “Our goal is a Palestinian state in the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital”
The Amalekites (palestinians) are the very people that Yehova ordered Israel to obliterate from the Earth about 3500 years ago, and their disobedient failure is the reason for their many persecutions since.
Haman was an Amalekite.
Will the “Antichrist” be one too?
>> “author of the piece appears to be either pro-Pali or a Useful Idiot” <<
>> “Ill bet the statement doesnt read the same in Arabic as it does in English.” <<
A common occurrence.
> their disobedient failure is the reason for their many persecutions since.
Had they obeyed, no Amalekite would have been there to trouble them.
They’ve been hounded, persecuted, rounded up, driven underground, lynched, etc etc, and the Amalekites ceased to exist long long ago.
No, the Amalekites have not ceased to exist. Just had their name changed to protect the guilty.
Only for people who live by metaphor.
There is nothing metaphorical about Israel’s plight WRT the Amalekites. It is as real as anything you can name.
Nope, they were annihilated.
The Amalekite genocide
The Sho'ah should be commemorated on Tish`ah Be'Av with all the other Jewish tragedies. A day of mourning in Nisan not only violates Halakhah but subtly implies that this tragedy really happened while the others are myths.
