SORT BY Relevancy
President Abbas is doing what a disgusted leader would do.
Most leaders of countries, in such a situation, would call in their Ambasadors, have a news conference, and present the reasons for the failure of negotiations. That would be it. Only Mr. Abbas went a few good steps further by doing what he threatened to do. Now the United States is pissed and Israel is in a panic. If they were not worried why would they be making denigrating statements about the "peace talks?"
Most Palestiians are behind the move too. At least the ones I have talked to on facebook. They didn't like the idea of the talks anyway. Because, every time these fake ass talks start West Bank gets more settlements. So the latest 700 units was the last straw.
In President Abbas' place what would you do? Email me at TheDirtyDemocrat@msn.com

President Abbas is gonna go on his own and to hell with Kerry, Netanyahu and the President himself.
The Palestinians are sick and tired of the BS that is called Peace Negotiations which is nothing but a charade to screw Palestine, steal more land, and humiliate her people. It is about time for hard ball to start.
President Abbas has done a poker trick I love.
Mr. Netanyahu has lost this round and it sure as hell is about time. Even Secretary Kerry was caught flat footed on this. He never thought that it would come to this. I wish I could have seen his face when he got the news.
President Abbas has kept his promise to go ahead with plans to join 15 international agencies to improve the State of Palestine's image and, perhaps, further move closer to real independence.
EU, US, UK, South Africa, UN is working with the coalition government of Abbas.
It is showing that Israel is the true enemy of the world and not Hamas etc. I like the idea of the new elections too. that will make a big difference to many of the NATO countries aside from Israel and perhaps Russia. Time will tell which way the wind may blow.
I see a very positive trend from Egypt with and agreement to open the Rafah gate permanently upon the realization of the new government in Palestine. I wonder how long the segregated Israel will last after that. Hopefully not long.
President Abbas of Palestine has come up with an ideal idea.
The IDF would remain in the West Bank for 5 instead of 3 years, but NATO would be in charge of the border security and Palestine will have their own police force for Gaza and the West Bank.
I don't know about you, but I think it is a good thing to have NATO troops on the borders so the IDF will have to mind their business instead of abusing, torturing, arresting, raping and killing the people of Palestine.
Smoke is coming out of Bibi's ears he is so pissed off.
I say good! It is time for the grown ups to take over. Bibi is old enough to be a good leader, but he has no soul nor wisdom.
Abbas is older and wiser even though he has never been given the proper respect for his wisdom and patience. In reality he is more settled and pragmatic and is much more comfortable with President Obama than he was around the previous 3 presidents.
Call me at 702-444-8422 Let's talk.
A new election is supposed to come within six months. About time!
During the term of Abbas' presidency he has lost control of Gazans and let Bibi's gang tear the resistance to taters, little pieces of materials fluttering in the wind.
This last assault by the weather was the worst hit on Gaza in memory. Where the hell was Abbas? Nowhere to be seen. Not a word come out of his camp nor help. It might have been Bibi in charge.
Call US Ambassador Danial Shapiro: 1-212-963-1234 Tell him to get the Gaza humanitarian supplies through.
Kerry was so dumbfounded he has yet to openly address the "Peace Process."
That is good because what does one say when the main leader steps on the master plan as he exits the negoitiations.
President Abbas may have done in Netanyahu and his radical agenda. Only time will tell. In the meantime Netanyahu has threatened to sanction and stop any progress for reconstruction of facilities. Big deal! How much more can the SOB do that could cause more misery to these brave people that hasn't allready been done?
President has moved away from the "peace process."
He has become a pretty good card player. This latest card was the trump I have wanted him to play for a long time. He did it in royal fashion and has gotten the attention of MSM for the first time since the 2012 bombing of Gaza by the occupying forces of Israel.
Bimbo I mean Bibi Netanyahu is boiling mad and Sec Kerry is so confused that he has nothing to say. Which is a good thing to do when you are caught by surprise.
By the way, I have a petition asking for folks to sign on to advocate a cut of the $3 billion given to Israel for weapons of all kinds, but does pay too for settlers to reside in illegal settlements in West Side Palestine.
And remember: #BDSIsrael
Dr. Chaps reports on these important issues:
