Abbas: I Lied To Obama And Netanyahu


Mahmoud Abbas waves during the swearing-in ceremony of the new unity government in Ramallah on June 2.

Mahmoud Abbas waves during the swearing-in ceremony of the new unity government in Ramallah on June 2.

“What has really happened here? Who invaded who? Who occupied what? What is subject to negotiation? What is the area in dispute? These are new things. I certainly appreciate this stand by the Australian government and I am certain that all those who want to see an agreement here based on peace, justice and truth – and it is impossible to build peace based on historic lies – would agree. There is truth, and it must be embraced. It requires many, many conclusions and steps, but it certainly does not require the sanctification of lies.”

The White House’s cautious approach to Abbas’s unity government, which has caused additional friction with Netanyahu, has prompted much reaction among senior members of the Democratic and Republican parties on Capitol Hill.

Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Robert Menendez (D-NJ) told a gathering of the American Jewish Committee that the PA’s new “two-headed dragon” was in direct violation of American foreign aid laws. The PA currently receives approximately $500 million a year in financial assistance from Congress and the State Department. Menendez warned that he would work to rescind the funding if the PA did not abandon its alliance with Hamas.

Menendez said, “Palestinians must choose between peace with Israel as a Jewish state and a marriage with Hamas, a terrorist organization. U.S. law is explicit on this. We will not provide assistance to a Palestinian government in which Hamas has a role and exercises undue influence. Whatever its alleged role, Hamas will wield power and influence, and Hamas, under our law, is a terrorist organization opposed to a two-state agreement and supported by Iran.”

    As an Israeli and a native-born American, I am disappointed and dismayed at the Obama administration's apparent abandonment of Israel, its only true ally in the entire Middle East.

  12. Run Guo says:

    Level the PA govt head quarters. See if they will show some respect.

  13. The United States, along with a few other donors, supports the Palestinians with aid money, and in return, are lied to.
    It is one thing to be lied to, it is quite another to be deceived by the lies.
    People are usually deceived by lies because they are hearing things that they want to hear.

  14. Gil Gilman says:

    They weren't fooled…but they are playing a fools game.

  15. I am not Israeli but I am as Native American as you can get, and I agree with you, Jay.

The sophisticated cement tunnels, which cost hundreds of millions of dollars, were reportedly built with Qatari government funds.

Netanyahu brushed aside Lapid’s political threats, saying that he was either too politically inexperienced or unaware of the true nature of the peace negotiations with Abbas.
