Want further evidence that Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinian Authority have no intention of negotiating anything with Israel?
The above picture is from Abbas' Facebook page. It shows a Palestinian flag superimposed on “The Al-Buraq Wall,” which is the Muslim term for the Western Wall of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
The text above the flag reads, 'Palestinians know al-Kuds (Jerusalem) is their right' .
The message is crystal clear. The Palestinians insist that Jerusalem is theirs, they intend to take over the Jewish Holy sites in Jerusalem and they will desecrate them and make them judenrein, just as the Jordanians did for 19 years until they foolishly attacked Israel in 1967 and were driven out.
They have no intention of negotiating anything or compromising in any way. In their minds Israel will give and they will simply take. And take. And take.
Of course, no one would ever dream of chastising the Palestinians for incitement, or accuse them of endangering peace negotiations...least of all the U.S. State department.
