Abbas Expects US Pressure to Push Out Netanyahu

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas expects US pressure to push out Netanyahu

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas will not resume negotiations with Israel unless the Netanyahu government agrees to a complete settlement freeze and publicly accepts a two-state solution, Abbas has told the Washington Post in an interview.
And since he does not believe Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will lift his opposition on these issues, Abbas and his leadership expect American pressure to gradually force Netanyahu out of office, the paper reported on Friday. "It will take a couple of years," it quoted one of Abbas's officials as saying.
Abbas was interviewed the day before his Thursday meeting at the White House with President Barack Obama.
Setting out what the newspaper called "a hardline position," the Palestinian leader conditioned a resumption of talks with Israel on Netanyahu's agreement to a halt in all settlement building - a demand being repeatedly stressed by Obama, US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and other senior US officials - and formal Israeli government acceptance of Palestinian statehood.


Wild Thing's comment.........

First the most noticable thing is the photo, see how friendly Obama is with Abbas, he sure as heck was not like that with BiBi. Nope not even close.

It is so sad, but Israel is on it's own. I wish so mcuh, pray so much that we would continue to be a friend to
Israel. Obama is a traitor to our country and to Israel's friendship.

His smile is sickening. He needs an American to give him a good shot with a fist at his mouth. We need to be behind Netanyahu and Israel, not Islam. This creep has his head up his ass. Thank God for Biden, at least we can get a laugh once in a while.

Jews as they are, I think, because of history are natuarlly paranoid. During the Gulf War Israel did all it could do to restrain itself, when asked by GHW Bush not to fire back at Iraq.

Bush two did a better job with the Israeli's than Clinton or his father. But now the Israeli's have no body to depend on for support. This was realized last week when Netanyahu came to Washington and obama tried to bully him. That's not going to work on Netanyahu.

In the 6 day war in 1967, I remember reading Stars and Stripes, the map had Isreal surrounded, it didn't look like that had a prayer. How much support LBJ gave them I don't remember or know but in six days it was over and Isreal won a bunch of land and the war. Like we did in the Mexican War. If Israel has to give that land back, why don't we. Because it is called to the victor goes the spoils.

At least the Mexican have a more legitimate claim that do the Palestinians.

Hussein is a Moslem and he has chosen his side.

BiBi won't bend to this.
