Abu Bluff adds ANOTHER pre-condition
Although he didn't explicitly make this a pre-condition to 'negotiations, 'moderate
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.
