Abu Bluff calls Netanyahu 'incidental to history'

This really ought to inspire Bibi to resume 'negotiations.'
Abbas's words taunted PM Benjamin Netanyahu, as the representative of Israel:
"Oh, Netanyahu, you are incidental in history; we are the people of history. We are the owners of history."

It should be noted that Abbas's taunting Netanyahu about history is a brazen distortion of known facts. Judean/Israeli history in the Land of Israel dates back thousands of years, and is documented by ancient Jewish and non-Jewish sources, and corroborated by numerous archeological finds, from Hebrew coins to Jewish ritual baths. The Kurkh Monolith, for example, an Assyrian document from the reign of King Shalmaneser III (859-824 BCE), includes the words: "King Ahab of Israel sent 2,000 chariots and 10,000 soldiers."

On the other hand, only recently have Arabs in the region identified as "Palestinians". No historian other than Palestinians have claimed that there was an ancient Palestinian history, and there isn't any reference to a Palestinian-Arab nation in antiquity, as Abbas claims. This is true of Islamic sources as well. The Quran refers to the people of Israel and even the destruction of the Temple [Sura17], but not to Palestinians.
Let's go to the videotape.

I don't see 'negotiations' resuming anytime soon.

The Arabs have no connection to the ancient Canaanites or Philistines.

Their interest in pre-Islamic history - about which they could care less - is only used as a political weapon against Israel.

They can't very well deny Jewish ties to the Land Of Israel, ties documented even in the Koran, so they have to pretend it doesn't exist.

Is peace possible with someone who denies reality to our face?

With that kind of attitude, don't look for peace to be established in our lifetime.
