Abbas: Palestinians seek peace in path of Jesus

President Mahmoud Abbas, who traveled to Bethlehem to greet Christmas revelers, says he hopes a Palestinian state will be established next year.

 

"We are seekers of peace in the path of Jesus," he said. "We hope that next year will be a year of peace by establishing the independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital, living side by side with Israel in peace and security." (AP)
