PA President Abbas Condemns Israel's Existence

Mahmoud Abbas, president of the Palestinian Authority, has just given a speech in Ramallah confirming that he intends to create yet another unnecessary crisis that will be a disaster above all for his people by going to the UN Security Council to demand unilateral recognition of a Palestinian state (and never mind that this is also a violation of the Oslo Accords leading to the creation of the Palestinian Authority itself). Note that Abbas talked about "63 years living under the occupation." That is, for him "the occupation" began in 1948, when Israel was created, and not in 1967, when Israel took over the West Bank in the war caused by Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser's threats of a war of extermination against the Jewish State. Even for the leader of the so-called Palestinian moderates, the real problem is Israel's existence and not the disposition of the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

The fact that Abbas also pretended to accept Israel's legitmacy in the same speech merely shows that he is a master of double-talk.
