Abbas continues to libel and incite rather than seek peace

...Mahmoud Abbas ...Thursday ...condemned Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria as "ethnic cleansing."
...He called on the Security Council to pass a binding resolution setting out a path to end the two-year deadlock in peace talks between Israel and the PA.
...He did not mention
  • that any Jew who enters a PA village takes his life into his hands and that he has announced repeatedly that no Jews would be allowed to live in a PA state...
  • how PA terrorists murder Jews, such as the Fogel famiy, steal livestock and destroy property...
  • that he refused to negotiate with Israel, breaking off talks with one pretext after another, and
  • that unilateral statehood declaration means no peace.
.. The PA is close to bankruptcy because his unilateral bid has stopped U.S. aid, which by law is predicated on his adhering to the Oslo Accords.
...Gaza's Hamas government, meanwhile, denounced the address by Abbas...
"We repeat that it would be better for Abu Mazen to proclaim the death of the negotiations and of compromise," 
said Taher al-Nunu, a spokesman for the Hamas government...
In his speech after Abbas, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu responded that Israel wants "a durable peace with the Palestinians."
"We won't solve our conflict with libelous speeches at the UN. That's not the way to solve them. We won't solve our conflict with unilateral declarations of statehood," he added. We have to sit together, negotiate together and reach a mutual compromise in which a demilitarized Palestinian state recognizes the one and only Jewish state."
Deputy Prime Minister Moshe Ya’alon also criticized Abbas’ speech, saying,
“This is not a speech of peace, not a speech of reconciliation. This speech reflects the avoidance of Abbas from allowing negotiations with Israel as he avoided Olmert's offer and as the Palestinians have avoided in the past.
Abu Mazen has never prepared his people for peace with Israel, and his accusatory speech tonight at the United Nations is further proof that he does not intend to do so,” continued Ya’alon.
“He does not recognize the existence of the Jewish people and the Jewish people's right to exist in its own state, and he prefers to flagrantly violate every agreement by choosing unilateral [actions] over negotiations without preconditions. It's impossible to talk about peace, on the one hand, and on the other to incite in a speech at the UN.”

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Abbas’ speech because
“was a blatant incitement speech which made it clear to all those who live in illusions and are lying to themselves about Abbas’ true intentions and where he is going.
“Instead of thanking Israel for having saved the PA just a few days ago from a humanitarian and financial collapse, he chose to lie and defame Israel,”
continued Lieberman.
“Everyone who heard Abbas’ speech understands that he does not intend and does not want to be a partner to a peace agreement.”
