2. Succession Planning
Mark ben Josef ,   USA   (12.14.14)
Unlike Israel, Abbas is doing some planning for the day after he dies. He is getting advanced in years. So what is he doing? Arranging for lots of countries to recognize Palestine's statehood. The statehood Israel has always tried to deny Palestinians. Netanyahu took that entirely off the table after the talks failed. And they failed because Netanyahu wanted to rename the status quo as statehood for Palestinians. No control over land sea or air. No control over borders or Palestinian security. no control over Palestine's economy of economic prospects. That (Netanyahu's vision and offering) is not statehood, not even close. So knowing he won't survive to see it, Abbas is setting up conditions internationally to make statehood easier for whoever succeeds him. Abbas successor likely will not be somebody appointed by the Israeli Prime Minister and accepted by the Palestinian people as legitimate by virtue of the appointment..
3. Collapse Abbas and the P.A. NOW!
Chaim ,   Israel   (12.14.14)
Lunatic Israeli support is all that keeps mass murderer Abbas and his genocidal P.A. afloat. The author is correct about that. If you love Israel, join together to DEMAND the immediate, complete, permanent end of all mad Israeli support for our mortal "Palestinian" foes. No more Israeli food, money, electricity, security, materials, cooperation or anything for our would be mass murderers. Collapse Abbas and the P.A. NOW!
4. #2 mark - you miss the point
solomon ,   bklyn   (12.14.14)
as usual. What Israel demands is a long proving-period for the "Pals". The have broken all agreements, and keep inciting their people to kill Jews. They do not accept a Jewish state. They must reap what they have sown and must prove themselves and their intentions. It is all on their shoulders whether you approve or not.
5. And the Two-State Final Solution needs Abbas!
6. Abbas is everone's enemy
Ian ,   Newcastle upon Tyne   (12.14.14)
