1. NO to Abbas, the PA, Arabs, the 2-State Solution.
Kayla ,   Florida   (09.23.11)
Enough of this pathetic charade already. They want us annihilated. May they come to their end SOON.
2. What global pressure???
Cynic #2   (09.23.11)
It is American and part European pressure, not global as you claim. China is 1340 million India is 1200 million Arab and Muslim world 1300 million Russia is 142 million Brazil is 190 million South Africa is 57 million I forgot to mention, America is really bankrupt and Europe is in deep sh*t. Enjoy its support for as long as you like. Mazal tov and Shanah Tova!
3. No to Jewish State?
Israeli   (09.23.11)
No to Palestinian state. No prob!
4. Good bit of negotiation there
Antony ,   Tel Aviv   (09.23.11)
He won't recognize Israel for what it is, the Jewish state, as it would mean reneging the Arab claim to the whole lot, and worse still, would be a massive stepping stone to peace.
Ben Yisrael ,   Tel Aviv, Israel   (09.23.11)
States liberate their land and establish their entities," Haniyeh said. Sorry. Jordan is Palestine. And take your camels with you. Bye bye.
6. abbas says...
jew from the east   (09.23.11)
... we shall not allow... you are in no position to allow or not allow over.
7. What's good for the goose
Vered, Israel   (09.23.11)
is apparently NOT good for the gander! For instance, we must recognize Abbas' State as Palestinian, but he will NEVER recognize ours as the Jewish State. Haniyeh says, "States are not built upon UN resolutions. States liberate their land and establish their entities," but if WE do it, even in a defensive war, they freak out for the next 63, and cry to the UN every other day. Oy, such babies.
8. Deal With the Rioters Then Move On to Gaza
Noah Lev ,   HollywoodUSA   (09.23.11)
One thing about Abbas, he is consistent, constantly dumb. Does he believe for one moment that any Israeli, in his (her) right mind will void the original reason by the UN for Israel's creation? Yet he gets upset when countries veto his extortion to pressure the world into accepting a non-viable and criminal entity. Something is missing in him, the PA, PLO, Fatah, and the rest of that bunch. Muslim countries have constitutions with Islamic governance. Hamas is at least honest, they want to destroy Israel and its Jewish population. They are delusional at this point. Israel has nuclar artillery shells, one of which, launched from the hills can take out Pals cities and end their regime forever. This is not about being Jewish or quais-Jewish, its about the right of return, not a right (see UN242 which requires Israel's acceptance to any Arab moving there). Israel did take in over 100,000 Muslims in its family reunion program. Assuming it gets there, land swaps could mean more Muslims relocating to the new Palestine..and perhaps disenfranchised Israeli-Arabs? Israel would get the large settlement block, and some smaller ones for continuity. It already has a fence which separates the two sides effectively. Simply put, Abbas wont yield on even the most obvious challanges. Hamas is the bad guy in all this, the bad cop in the bad-good cop routine. Okay, so you (USA) wont vote yes,..then there will be violence galore..coming from us. A remedy: Israel should send its brigades into the Strip..slice it into 5 parts (no settlements).control the shorefront, all btw conditioned on the acceptance by Abbas to UN242 and Israel alwaysa Jewish entity. The deterrence used by Israel and the PA in the next week, will determine their future, in my opinion. Crushing any protests is a start. .
9. Abbas is pitiful
Richard ,   Boca Raton, USA   (09.23.11)
As if we need the Muslim Abbas to tell the world that Israel is a Jewish country. We all know the Arab countries that surround Israel and want it off the map are Muslim countries. Big Deal. This schmuck Abbas and his 4th Century followers want the Palestinians to have a country, but refuse to acknowledge that Israel is a Jewish country. What a pity that so many "western" countries back Abbas in his abortive quest. Israel is a shining jewel in the middle of the world's rectum. Shabbat Shalom.
10. Same logic = NO to "Palestinian state"
Brian Cohen ,   Judean Peoples Front   (09.23.11)
If Israel is not the national homeland of the Jewish people, then obviously "Palestine" is not the national homeland of the Palestinian people. This is the logic of Abbas, who is now telling the world that if there is no national homeland for the Jews, there is obviously no national homeland for the Palestinians. Or, the real reason is he's just a racist. But then, we already knew that.
11. abbas will hold the speech of the century, in a few hours..
eporue ,   europe   (09.23.11)
...this was well planned and well thought through, imo... ...he is going to bring a major blow to the audience... maybe its something like asking for UN forces in the west bank and having IDF out... and something with the settlers... ...its not only "statehood"... there are so many issues on your chessboard, that you got lost yourself over your own mess already... whatever it is, abbas has some things left... i truly believe, he is really really good... and hamas doesnt have a clue, and hasnt even understood, what abbas has done already for palestine...
12. WELL, That's about the end of it then...
As usual, here we go again. Recognition is the FIRST STEP. Complete waste of time unless this mutually agreed upon. What I find amazing is that the Pals continually maintain this stance , OPENLY and yet, nobody takes them to task - they're excused of responsibility. Apparently its all Israels fault. Really pathetic.
13. Now read carefully!
jjubbuddutt ,   Australia   (09.23.11)
Do Jews need more proof what these interlopers have in mind? This will only end after a war of such magnitude that like Germany and Japan who were castrated after WW2 the Islamic world would need to join the club. The alternative would be the end of Jewish civilisation..No way out sad to write.
14. "States liberate their land and establish their entities"
Raymond in DC ,   Washington, USA   (09.23.11)
That's exactly what Israel did, except they RE-established their entity. As to Haniyeh's "their land" comment, the League of Nations in 1922 recognized the *historic* right of the Jews to the land.
15. NEVER to Jewish State
Nour ,   One State   (09.23.11)
Bravo Abbas. Do they read history? Mamluks? Abbasids? Fatimids? Ummayads? Ottomans? Levant Arabs of the 20th century? My home in the Galilee is NOT Jewish property.
16. Abbas; Keep saying no. I don't want yes
Tambour ,   Eilat   (09.23.11)
You say no suits us well. That way, we do not forget who is our friend and who is our enemy. That way, leftists and apologists will not fall for your slick tongue tricks and fool themselves that you will ever weant peace. You do not. A hudna is the best you can do as you are at war. As long as we know that, we will not put our guard down.
17. To Nour
Gene   (09.23.11)
Don't worry. After the next election, when Lieberman will become new prime-minister, your shitty home in Galilee will become part of PA and you will enjoy the life which you deserve.
18. Well at least we know now....Deal or No Deal?
Tim ,   Brighton   (09.23.11)
And so does the rest of the world Its clear that by not accepting Israel as The Jewish State that what Abbas REALLY wants is NOT PEACE but ISRAEL Its NO DEAL!
19. "Abbas last minutes of fame"
tiki ,   belgium   (09.23.11)
Let this miserable man enjoy his 'last minutes of fame on the International stage. This was his strategy all along 'before going under, (with no succes to show for), like his predescessors Shukeiry & Arafat . Arafat.....who the hell was Arafat???
20. Help me out
MnEd ,   USA   (09.23.11)
Nour, Salma, leftists, etc help me out here as I’m just a simple Midwesterner. Abbas/you/the entire Arab world says no to recognizing Israel as a Jewish State. Yet, a simple Wikipedia ( search lists 48 Muslim-majority countries of which 17 list Islam as the State religion and 7 refer to themselves as Islamic states. So, my question is very simple. Why is it OK to have 24 countries which recognize Islam in this manner (and routinely subjugate or don’t even allow other faiths), but it is wrong to have 1 country which is recognized as a Jewish State (and also allows freedom for other faiths)? Methinks you speak with forked tongues.
21. A mistake
Michael Steiner ,   Bahrain   (09.23.11)
Israel is not a Jewish state nor should it be. However, it IS the homeland of Jews and will remain so. President Abbas had better come to terms with that fact; otherwise, he'll be living in as much denial as Netanyahu is when it comes to the Palestinians and their rights to self-determination.
22. Say NO to TERROR!!
Tamar ,   Tel aviv Israel   (09.23.11)
with all respect dont we suffer enough from their evil deeds?????? they are muslim that want to take over Israel, cowards that won't even recognize Israel, if they will establish their own state it will be complete and utter devastation to Israel they will bring all of their muslim allies to this territory complete disaster for OUR JEWISH NATION THIS IS OUR HOLY LAND G-D BLESS IT they will never conquer the jews, we've come this far we will go much farther come the task AMEN
23. Well said
Joe ,   USA   (09.23.11)
Now if Israel demanded recognition as "A Semitic state", I don't think Abbas would have a problem with that.
24. Abbas
Al ,   Georgia, U.S.   (09.23.11)
What I like about samurais is that they have committed seppuku (or simply suicide) for reasons that had brought shame to them; usually before sunset on a given day. Well, if Abbas was a samurai and Pals possessed some sort of bushido honor code, or honor, or code… Sorry, I must have been daydreaming! P.S. Hey Abbas, should you though decide to be a man and go that path, don’t even think about taking innocent people with you!
25. Arabs Can't Agree On Satehood
emanon ,   USA   (09.23.11)
This alone should be grounds for denying their bid for a nation. They can't agree who is in charge, so how can they govern themselves?
26. Obama & Hamas are WRONG!
cadbury ,   Boston, USA   (09.23.11)
The UN has been the route to statehood for many countries including Israel! Why shouldn't it be so for the Palestinians as well?
27. Palestinian State
Karl W. Schwab ,   Houston, Texas USA   (09.23.11)
I say no to a Palestinian State because they can't control themselves and are very much like the Iranians. They don't want PEACE. I support Israel all the way!
28. God gave the land to the Jews....
Scott ,   Allentown, USA   (09.23.11)
God gave the land to the Jews......Abbas may not recognize a Jewish state, but God does.
29. No to Jewish State
Jeff ,   USA   (09.23.11)
Wow - "the cat's out of the bag". What a surprise, Abbas will never recognize a Jewish State in the middle of Muslim lands. Nothing new. Read then new PLO's state objectives: The new entity of Palestine will be considered a Muslim Country and will be ruled by Sharia Law - no Jews allowed! Looks like an Apartheid State to me. But, do you hear any objections from the world leaders - no, Not one has said this is an obstacle to peace - pathetic. You Jews hold fast - your new year is coming. You will prevail. Bibi is great!
30. Aye, there's the rub
StevieT ,   USA   (09.23.11)
With a little help from Shakespeare, we can clearly see the crux of the eternal conflict. Give us our State with no Jews in it, and you can have your State , but all Arab brethren can share it also. 'Kinda' like kids splitting up their candy, one for you, 2 for me. Doesn't work for the kids and it won't work for the Palestiians.
