What 'peace process'?

'Moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen warns that the United States decision to halt aid to the 'Palestinians' harms the 'peace process' and 'talks.'
"I will not deny that we have a true relationship with the United States, but it is also an ally of Israel," he said.

Washington's financial aid to Ramallah, he added, "serves the Israeli interest as well as their own and that of the peace (process') stability. Suspending the aid will be a disservice to both the peace process and Israel."

On Thursday, Abbas addressed the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe in Strasbourg and urged its members to support the Palestinian bid for statehood.

"You supported the Arab Spring which calls for democracy and freedom," he said. "Now the Palestinian Spring has arrived asking for freedom and an end to occupation. We trust you, and we are confident that you will not abandon us and let us down."

Abbas outlined the PA's "sincere intentions" to negotiate with Israel, saying that the Palestinians' "disappointment of the prospects for negotiations" was the catalyst to the move.

"Our only alternative has been to turn to the international community and call on it to take action to open up new horizons for the peace process, through recognition of the state of Palestine," he stressed.
He sounds just like the State Department, doesn't he?
