Abu Bluff adds ANOTHER pre-condition
Although he didn't explicitly make this a pre-condition to 'negotiations, 'moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen has added yet another impossible pre-condition to entering into an agreement with Israel. At a press conference in Cairo, Palestinian Authority chief Mahmoud Abbas said that no agreements would be signed with Israel on ending the Middle East conflict as long as Gaza was under Hamas rule. Only when there was “Palestinian unity” and a restoration of the PA government's rule in Haifa could any agreements be signed.
Abbas reiterated that he would agree to direct talks only if Israel agreed to withdraw to the 1948 borders and ended all building in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem. PA sources said that Abbas plans on telling Arab League members in an upcoming meeting that there had been little progress in the indirect talks between Israel and the PA, and that there was no reason to agree to direct talks.
'Palestinian unity'? In HAIFA? Good luck with that.
Comment: Interesting that now Obama et al are claiming "victory" in starting direct talks. He claims that by putting pressure on Abbas (what pressure?) his strategy has paid dividends. Stay tuned to "discover" even more pre-conditions Abbas will place on the supposed upcoming talks. The naive Obama and friends simply don't understand the mind of the Arab world. They think that the Arab world believe in, supports and thinks like those in the West. Note also how the West really agrees that Israel must negotiate with the entire Arab world-what you say? Yes, by agreeing with Abbas who has said that he wants the Arab League to push Israel to talks, this effectively means that Israel must "talk" with the entire Arab authority-good grief!!
