Abu Mazen's demands

When 'proximity talks' get started sometime in the next week or two, 'moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen has a long list of demands that are not going to make Prime Minister Netanyahu very happy.
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said Sunday that he has already demanded sole control over large sections of the West Bank, including those under total Israeli sovereignty. Abbas said that he demand the Jordan Valley, even though Israelis have made clear that they will not agree to preconditions from the Palestinians.


Abbas also announced that he wants to renew the PA's activity in Jerusalem in the now-closed Orient House and the Palestinian Trade Bureau in the eastern part of the city.

“The purpose is to return, within a few months, to the situation that we had before the Intifada, with gradual and significant additions of territory that will be transferred to full Palestinian control,” he explained.

Abbas said that he will visit the United States this month, in order to continue the peace process. “The Americans understood that establishing a Palestinian state is a strategic American interest. Therefore, they are investing serious efforts” in the proximity talks.
What could go wrong?

What the Palestinians want is for Israel to reward them for the Second Intifada as though their efforts back then to destroy Israel should have no consequences whatsoever.

Israel should offer them nothing. If they want to make peace, fine. If not, there is nothing to talk about.

When he visits our President, do you think he will be well treated? Perhaps a dinner with the President; some photo-ops?
