Abbas Shuts Down the Peace Process – Tom Wilson

On Wednesday, Abbas’ spokespeople in Ramallah announced a set of red lines in any negotiated peace settlement that block just about every concession that the Israelis, and even the U.S., have requested. Abbas demands: a total Israeli withdrawal from all territories that went to Israel in 1967; that the Palestinians not be required to recognize the Jewish state; that east Jerusalem be specified as the capital of a Palestinian state; the release of all Palestinian prisoners; and resolving the refugee issue along the lines of UN General Assembly Resolution 194, which in essence means sending those Palestinians claiming to be refugees not to a Palestinian state but to Israel.
