Israel's so-called peace partner....

Abbas always protests when Israel calls itself a Jewish state...
“When I was there, I was shocked to see on their own television references to Israel’s conducting of Nazi-like experiments on Palestinian prisoners. Prisoners are very important for Palestinian society, for families, and the notion that their family members are being subjected to Nazi-like experiments just breeds hatred and contempt for Jews.”

Cotler said the most disturbing and ignored incitement comes from the Palestinian leadership itself, including the PA’s president Mahmoud Abbas.

“People don’t realize that Abbas signed a law, on the very day there was a suicide terrorist attack in December 2005 against Israel, providing monthly stipends for the families of suicide bombers. In January 2007, Abbas addressed a large crowd that was estimated as being over 100,000, in which he said ‘the sons of Israel are mentioned in the Koran as those who are corrupting humanity on Earth.’

“Abbas has never recognized Israel’s legitimacy as a Jewish state. What was also passed over was a meeting of Arab countries in Senegal last March. During that meeting, Abbas spoke of the Palestinians as being the object of an ethnic cleansing and, worse, that Palestinians are facing a campaign of annihilation by Israel and that Israel perpetrates barbaric attacks against defenceless Palestinians.”

Cotler said Abbas also celebrated Israel’s release of a Lebanese terrorist who killed members of an Israeli family, in exchange for the return of the bodies of two Israeli soldiers killed in 2006.

“Abbas personally sent his own expressions of celebrations. Knowing that Israel was in mourning was, tragically, a national day of celebration in Lebanon.
