Abbas Nixes Extension of Kerry’s Nine-Month Talks

It’s all over but the shouting.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry will not get an extra inning in his Peace Talks game, Palestinian Authority  Chairman Mahmoud Abbas implied to Romanian President Traian Basescu Tuesday.

Referring to the talks that began last July after a three-year hiatus, Abbas said at a  press conference, “It was stipulated that they run for nine months and there were no talks about extending them.”

Abbas is waiting for the nine-month periods to end this April, when he will return to the United Nations in another attempt to declare the Palestinian Authority an independent country based on his own  political and territorial demands.

If he cannot get the required two-thirds support in the U.N. Security Council for a vote on the Palestinian Authority as full-fledged member of the United Nations, he still has the option of winning representation on United Nations agencies.

  1. The Jewish people and nation should be extremely careful believing anything that Kerry or the boy king say. They want their pace in history regardless of the cost to the Jewish nation. They don;t care about Israel or its people, the boy king only cares about his place in muslim history and helping them establish a totally muslim middle east. Jewish people please remember the past, trust no one with your freedom and lives but your selves. History will tell you this is right.

    The real problem rests with American Jews who have donated 100's of millions of dollars to Obama's campaign, and voted overwhelmingly for him and other Democrats. These Jews will lose their investment as they watch The State of Israel be destroyed. These Jews will do nothing to help The State of Israel. You are seeing this right before your eyes.
