RavSean ,   Toronto, Canada   (12.16.12)
I am sure that any day now, Abbas will bring these war crimes against the Palestinian refugees to the International Criminal Court. I am sure of it. It is shocking to me that it has not happened already.
2. They've ALWAYS been pawns in Syria regime's schemes.
Ian ,   Newcastle upon Tyne   (12.16.12)
If the successive Syria regimes had the Palestinian Arab displaced persons welfare at heart they wouldn't have subjected them to 64 years' apartheid.They've been TRICKED if they thought that the Syrian regimes were interested in a state for THEM. Syrian regimes have always had one and only one ambition;to include the whole of the Palestine Mandate in a Greater Syria.They've used the terrorists and the DPs to further their ends and have never given a damn who gets hurt. THREE CHEERS FOR ISRAEL!!!
3. "Abbas urges, condemns, urges , condemns
A ,   Belgium   (12.16.12)
when "palestinians" are killed by their Syrian arab "brothers". He doesn't say a word when Israel is bombarded daily with rockets from his Hamas "brothers". See the difference? Arabs and Jews. Abbas is as phoney and fake as the so called "country" he represents. And the world is going to see it.
4. Okay, I think I understand
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (12.16.12)
It is perfectly alright to slaughter 50,000 Syrians .... but touch one hair on the head of a single ersatz "Palestinian," and Abbas goes all hand-wringing and weepy. Quite the hypocrite, isn't he, the tiny little mad terrorist. Probably explains why he has remained silent with respect to the dreadful school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. Mr. Abbas just doesn't want people remembering exactly who it was that organized the massacre of Jewish schoolchildren in Ma'alot. Well, I remember. It was Abbas. The terrorist midget can run ... but he cannot hide.
5. Palestinians /Syrian shelling
Jason Alster ,   Wethersfield , Ct.   (12.16.12)
According to the news Abbas does not want the Syrian regime to bring the Palestinians into their conflict. Nice, but have not the Palestinians tried at every opportunity to get the other Arab nations to fight Israel.
6. no-one will protect the Pals.
todd ,   Baltimore   (12.16.12)
You keep your own people in refugee camps in Gaza and the West Bank. The world does not care about your children more than you do... they just are happy to condemn Israel. But do they hate you. You should make peace with Israel, who treats arabs much better than any arab country.
7. i wonder....
les ,   canada   (12.16.12)
why would abbas stand up for the "palestinians" ONLY? the syrian arabs are desposable? can you imagine the "world's reaction" if israel was using the same "restraints" against the pals as assad uses to get rid of his enemies?
8. THANKS Sarah B
David ,   Montreal, Canada   (12.16.12)
Thanks for reminding of the Ma'alot massacre.For those don't know about it, YOU SHOULD KNOW AND REMEMBER.
9. come on Abbas use your new toy and threaten to go to the ICC
zionist forever   (12.16.12)
10. what a joke.
DavidR ,   USA   (12.16.12)
Ramallah doesn't interfere in other regimes affairs. Really? What is all this going on with abbass and his minions trying to destroy Israel? What was that at the UN? Oh, that wasn't interfering, that just want to possess Jerusalem, Israel's Capital City. They just want to drive Israel into the sea! They don't want the Syrians to kill Palestinians, just Jews. abbas, you are hasatan himself. I would spit in your face.
11. Nato enforcement
Zechariah   (12.16.12)
The USA and NATO ought act to protect the Refugees under direction from the Nobel prize for peace EU.
12. Sarah, do you have evidence?
Dave from Brazil ,   Sao Paulo   (12.16.12)
The Maa'lot massacre was perpetrated by the Democratic front for the Liberation of Palestine. Abbas is a member of Fatah. I could not find evidence linking him to the massacre, could you provide it?
13. Palestinians in Syria..
Get Real ,   UK   (12.16.12)
Palestinian leaders don't want Palestinians involved in the Syrian conflict. So why are they enrolled in both the PLA, attached to the Syrian Military, and with the FSA rebels?
14. Palestinians
Henry ,   Cavite, Philippines   (12.17.12)
In the last days, muslims will kill muslims, Israelis and Christians as well. We are in the last days. WW3 is knocking at the door. Our violent days will be over soon with 2/3 of mankind dead. We are looking at the return of Jesus to rule with an iron hand.
15. OH MY, shoe is on the OTHER foot, protect Jews from arabs
Bunnie Meyer ,   Los Angeles, CA USA   (12.17.12)
16. Lip Service
Abdel Karim Salim ,   Jerusalem   (12.17.12)
Did he condemn the late king Hussein of Jordan when the Jordanian beduin army was mercilessly shelling Palestinian refugee camps in Amman in the Black September war of 1970 ? Perhaps Abbas should have been wise enough to tell his people in Syria to hold aloof in the ongoing conflict because they, as guests , have to go by the rules of Syria ?
17. To # 4 Sarah B,
Abdel Karim Salim ,   Jerusalem   (12.17.12)
The late military correspondent of " Haaretz ", Zeev schiff , wrote in his book " Israel's Lebanon War " ( co-authored by Ehud Yari ) that Mahmoud Abbas was the PLO financial wizard who financed the 1972 Munich act in which eleven Israeli athletes were killed during the Olympics XX ...
18. #12 Just for you
Tahl   (12.17.12)
I admit I could not find concrete evidence linking Abu Mazen to the Maalot massacre on short notice, but this is a well-known fact. He was blamed with this accusation many times (most notable of which, when the mayor of Safed, where most of the victims had lived, refused to let him enter the town), and he never bothered to deny it. However, there is rather solid evidence that Abu Mazen was one of the masterminds of the Munich massacre, according to the autobiography of Abu Daoud, a former senior PLO official.
19. #12 Re: Moderate Fatah / Moderate Abbas
Mahmoud Abbas, the current Palestinian Authority chairman, was behind the Maalot High School Massacre in which 26 Israeli school children were killed and 66 were wounded, not including the Muslim terrorists who perpetrated the massacre. This slaughter was planned by Mahmud Abbas, the current “moderate” head of the PLO. Members of Fatah's armed wing carried out the attack against the Fogel family of Itamar in which three children and their parents were stabbed to death Saturday morning.
20. #6 Sarah B you are WONDERFUL!!!
Dan ,   Florida - Tel Aviv   (12.17.12)
21. War Crimes? ICC?
Daniel ,   Tel Aviv   (12.17.12)
I know that Assad will be labeled a war criminal. Threats made against his generals and trials held at the ICC.
22. Iran will fight
Gee ,   Zikron Yaakov   (12.17.12)
To the last 'Palestinian' to the last Arab to keep their puppet on his throne
23. He Doesn't Care
Ron ,   OC, USA   (12.17.12)
This is lip service only, when these so called refugees languished in camps for 60 some years he didn't say a word for their plight. He like Arafat used them and abused them by telling them that they would be going to Israel. If Abbas were honest he would tell them that there home is in a future Syria or Jordan. Maybe Abbas has guilt pangs of some sort...
24. how do you like it?
ilan ,   Ramat Gan, Israel   (12.17.12)
how do you like it when your civilian citizens are attacked? that tactic doesn't sit well anymore with you, does it? a tactic the palestinians perfected and abuse because they know their enemy can't use the same tactic back! If you knew, your enemy would retaliate in the exact same way, would you still do it? now open your mouth and say" ahh", your own medicine is coming!
25. PLO is Assad's friend
Chaim Ben Kahan ,   Efrat, Israel   (12.17.12)
For decades PLO terrorist have found safe haven in Syria, and now the PLO is betraying their good buddy Assad. Is there anyone that the PLO won't betray?
26. Abbas, time to act , go to ICC
Salma ,   State of Palestine   (12.17.12)
if Jews really believed in Moses , they would allow these poor Palestinians in Syria to come back to their homeland because no one wants them.
27. To: No. 17
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (12.17.12)
Yeah. I know that, too. The financial wizard of Munich needs to ply his wizardry to the dismal finances of the ersatz "Palestine" Authority. Actually -- why hasn't he? Too busy bulking up his considerable personal offshore bank accounts, I wager. Not to mention maintenance of his homes in Monte Carlo, Paris and his flat in Belgravia. And the ersatz "Palestinians" wonder why they are drowning in poverty. Hello.
28. To: No. 16
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (12.17.12)
Bleat, bleat, whine, whine. That's the extent of what the ersatz "Palestinians" can do. Tell us, why don't you, how you make the illogical leap in logic from Moses (who was not G-d, by the way) to a bunch of ersatz "Palestinian" terrorists. Why don't you pray to your Abu Mazen? Perhaps he can step out of his fancy digs long enough to listen. Not that he can -- or wants to -- do anything about it. I'm pretty sure that by now, your precious Abu Mazen understands that going to the United Nations on November 29, 2012 was a MAJOR mistake. Are the lights flickering in your home yet, chica? Gotta pay that electrical bill. Don't worry. More is coming. Much, much more.
