Abu Mazen rejects Israel as a Jewish state again

Speaking to reporters in racist Saudi Arabia today, 'moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen once again rejected the concept of Israel being a Jewish state:
"From a historical perspective, there are two states: Israel and Palestine. In Israel, there are Jews and others living there. This we are willing to recognize, nothing else," Abbas told reporters in Saudi Arabia.


"There was this myth that there were talks or a deal," at the summit, Abbas said. "The purpose of the Annapolis meeting was to launch talks without going into details."

"There will be two stations after Annapolis: one in Paris and the second in Moscow where there will be another conference to review what the negotiations have achieved," he added, without elaborating.

Abbas did not say whether the Moscow meeting would focus on the Syrian-Israeli track as has been widely speculated.
Abu Mazen is still pining after his long lost love: Hamas.
"We have had talks with Hamas for the past four or five years," he said. "We don't mind having talks because they are part of the Palestinian people and we will not give up this part of the people and we will not ignore them."

"We consider it an important movement," he said. "When it ends its coup, we will be ready to talk to it."

Before traveling to Saudi Arabia, Abbas traveled to Jordan, where he said that he "didn't receive any guarantees from the American administration regarding the upcoming negotiations with Israel."

"All I can say is that we felt seriousness from President (George W.) Bush and Secretary (of State Condoleezza) Rice and the whole American administration toward resolving the Palestinian problem," he said. "But we can't claim that we have any guarantees on the negotiations and their outcome."

"We're depending on the righteousness of our cause and on the international community, including the United States, which is sympathetic toward the Palestinian issue," added Abbas during a brief stopover at an Amman air base.
The more things change, the more they stay the same.
