    President Barack Obama (R) holds a bilateral meeting with President Mahmoud Abbas (L) of the Palestinian Authority in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington DC, USA, 09 June 2010.  Obama is expected to urge Abbas to agree to direct talks with Israel as a partial ten-month moratorium on new West Bank settlement construction is currently due to expire in September 2010.  EPA/MICHAEL REYNOLDSWashington – Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas told U.S. Jewish leaders on Wednesday that he would never deny Jews their right to the land of Israel, according to participants of the two-hour roundtable discussion.

    Some 30 Jewish leaders from organizations such as AIPAC, the Anti-Defamation League, and the Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations took part in the Washington meeting, which focused mainly on the indirect peace talks and violent incitements.

    “I am sure some people don’t agree with him but the fact that everybody showed up was pretty encouraging,” one of the participants told Haaretz..

    The Palestinian president said during the discussion that he had in the past proposed creating a trilateral commission to monitor and punish incitement, but that Israel did not agree to it.

    When asked what he could offer Israelis to show that he was serious about peace initiatives, Abbas reminded the participants that he had addressed the Israeli public in an interview on Channel 10. “Why wouldn’t Bibi go to Palestinian TV and do the same?” said the Palestinian president.

    “I would never deny [the] Jewish right to the land of Israel,” Abbas then declared.

    Later on Wednesday, Abbas told Charlie Rose in an interview on PBS that Israel must agree to ceding East Jerusalem as the Palestinian capital as a necessary precondition for any peace settlement.

    “East Jerusalem is occupied territory. The entire world recognizes that including the United States of America,” Abbas told Rose. “We cannot accept any solution that excludes East Jerusalem.”

    During that interview, Abbas also lauded Barack Obama’s administration and its efforts to bring forth a two-state solution.

    “This is the first time we hear from a U.S. administration talking about that the solution of a two-state solution is in the vital interest of the United States,” said Abbas.

    “The two-state solution is no longer only a Palestinian interest or an Israeli interest or a Middle East interest, but it is also an American interest.”

    This child of a dog said: “… “I would never deny [the] Jewish right to the land of Israel,” Abbas then declared. …”
    Then he says: “…. “East Jerusalem is occupied territory. The entire world recognizes that including the United States of America,” Abbas told Rose. “We cannot accept any solution that excludes East Jerusalem.” …”

    This means (,if you believe this lying Mamzeir,) that he will agree to the Jewish right to Israel, provided that the PA gets Mokoim Hamikdosh and surrounding territory. That’s like a person agreeing to having his heart removed and having expectations to live. How can any Jew agree to this?

    why not a one-state solution? how can the palestinians be trusted to run their own country? better Israel annex the land they won fair and square in ’67 and forget about the whole “Jewish” state nonsense – better focus on democracy and religious freedom and we frum people will stay frum without a Rabbanut etc. and the frei people can do what they want. better anyway the anti-religious chiloni people should intermarry and stop polluting klal Yisrael with this oxymoron of “secular” “Jews” that confuses the non-Jewish world and makes a BIG chillul Hashem

    Was his denial of the holocaust brought up at this meeting?
    How about his being responsible for dead Israelis years ago?
    How about his naming streets for known terrorists?

    And we fools should believe you? What do you tell your buddies in Arabic?

    I have come to the conclusion that we are a stupid people. If Hitler YM”S would stand up in 1943 and say a similar statement we would kiss him and make goody goody.

    More appeasement for the messiah. These people have sworn to drive us into the sea. You don’t change the heart of these people. Remember PM Meir, when asked when will there be peace in Is.? She said when the Arabs learn to love their children more than they love dying? I rest my case!

    When asked what he could offer Israelis to show that he was serious … Abbas (YS”V) reminded the participants that he addressed the Israeli public.
    What did he offer? … Nothing whatsoever, as usual

    I don’t understand the big deal – the Palestinians already agreed to let Israel keep Jewish neighborhoods and as much as the Israeli Arabs don’t want to be part of Palestine – Israel doesn’t need the Arab neighborhoods to be part of Jerusalem it just cost them money. as for the holy sites (which was the other big problem) they should be watched by US, Israel, Palestinian Forces with a rabbinical council to over see it – the west bank was all worked out already

    There you have peace in five minutes – of course this plan is only until moshiach comes

    When he is referring to not denying jewish rights to Israel, he is referring to Har Hazaysim and Har Hamenuchos and so long as we are underground.

    Then why do you demand that no Jews live in PA controlled areas?

    ….first take East Jerusalem….!, There will never ever ever be a palestinian state, there has not been such a state in the past, now, or in the future. Any effort or money poured into such an initiative will sink into a deep evil void. The goiym are forgetting to include someone in this decision making process, As they always have.

    Some of you seem to be criticizing the Jewish organizations for even meeting with Abbas. As Shimon Peres once said “You make peace with your enemies, not with your friends”. Abbas is all that we have right now, to negotiate with. In fact, the Israelis are in the process of training Abbas’ security force on the West Bank, and have issued them weapons, other than sidearms. We cannot continue to occupy or adminster the entire West Bank forever. For example, after 27 years of occupation, the USA returned Okinawa to the Japanese people. It also returned Iwo Jima to Japan, after 23 years of occupation. The USA lost over 30,000 troops in taking those two islands. My point is that at some point occupations have to end, and there has to be some finality.

    Dividing?

    Why not divide any other coutry,how can we divide G-D’s gift? it is “NOT” an option.
    NOT Yesterday NOT Today and NOT Tomorrow. This is, was and always will be our land. Just look how much land the Arabs have, let them share with their so called Lovely Brothers. They all lack real education, they chose their own reality, all lies.
    Enough is Enough.

    why is ok for aipac & adl & the conference of major jewish organizations to meet with abbas with no one complaining about it. but when rabbi moshe hirsh zatsal met with arab leaders he was branded as a rodef and a traitor of klal yisroel, the only reason he met with them was for the benefit of klal yisroel. the real reason he was branded a rodef is because he was against zionizm & thats what it hurts them most , true he was a rodef and traitor of zionisn which every ehrlicher yid should be
