Abbas Backs Off Threats on Ending Talks with Israel

Palestinian Authority  chairman Mahmoud Abbas, undoubtedly under pressure from the Obama administration, has backed off his latest threat to halt the American-led direct talks with Israel.

He told the French news agency AFP Monday, “We have committed to continue the negotiations for nine months, regardless of what happens on the ground.”

However he added that at the conclusion, “We will take the appropriate decision.” The statement is open to interpretation but all logic points to one direct – a direct request to the United Nations Security Official for recognition of the Palestinian Authority as a country based on his own definition of borders.

From Kerry’s standpoint, the talks will end with a mutual agreement between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, but all actions and words by both sides show that they simply are playing along with the Obama administration until “game over.”

  1. He’s playing the US. “I tried, but it’s Israel’s fault, sniff.”

  2. God has returned Israel to his land and they will never be removed from it again. ANY give away of God’s land is a sin in God’s eyes. I pray for peace but all too often what takes place is war. In the middle east we have wars and rumors of wars and sometimes rumors of peace on an almost weekly basis. In addition Iran claims they will not build the bomb but continue to spin their “low level” centrifuges. Current intelligence seems uncertain of when Iran could get the bomb and Israel cannot afford to gamble with this. Time IS running out. Another question is rather or not the Russian/Syrian agreement will do the trick in Syria? Stay tuned. I wrote a small 6 or 7 page book that talks about what I believe the Bible states will take place soon as well as the potential trends I see at this time. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next

  3. Never again.Hear it loud and clear Isrea for ever.

  4. I am very disappointed to hear the Palestinians aren’t ending “peace talks.” Netanyahu made an egregious mistake when he allowed people the likes of Peres and Livni to be chief negotiators. These discussions have absolutely no resemblance of true negotiations, what they are in reality is a bonanza of benefiting the Palestinians at Israel’s expense. The whole situation is incredibly frustrating and disgraceful. This issue is probably the biggest problem I have with Israel, their inability or unwillingness to stand up for themselves and say, no, we will not release Palestinians terrorists from prison for any reason, let alone just to get the Palestinians to show up at more dead end talks. No, we will not give up anymore land, we did that and were rewarded with increased violence. No, Jerusalem is not negotiable, it is now as it always was the eternal capital of the Jewish state of Israel. No, we will not be dictated to from anyone as to what and where we can build in our own country. I hear all the time about what the Palestinians want and their preconditions. But, I never hear Israel standing up for themselves and demanding that their nation will stop being perpetually molested by Palestinian aggression and barbarism. Nobody is going to stand up for Israel except Israel and it’s long over due that they start.

  5. Ping-pong. Let only to be ping, that is Israel has to stoping the PA/US/EU blackmailing, stoping the release the criminal prisoners with life, and continue the settlements building, stoping two states negotiations, stoping ping-pong.

  6. I agree with every word Lawrence Kauderer wrote.
    I have written similar words. That Netanyahu fell into a trap. He should have told Obama, Kerry and Abbas.
    " we will release every prisoner, once you have sat and spoken about peace, agree to peace without any pre conditions, and sign a real peace treaty. But can one trust Abbas & Co? Would the pece agreement be as worthy as Arafat's agreement
    Make peace, let the Israelis think they have peace, but lets start the intifada.
    I wonder if any peace agreement will be worth more than used toilet paper.
    netanyahu , a man I greatly respect and idmire, should resign his position, for first allowing the release of murderers, before any agreemet signed.
    Abbas is no fool.He had no intention of making peace with Israel. He wanted his killer released.
