Abbas is being roundly condemned for a hateful speech promoting anti-Semitism and justifying the murder of Jews. Does anyone still believe he could negotiate peace with the Jewish state?

From the 11th century until the Holocaust, Jews were persecuted and massacred not because they were Jewish, but because of their behavior in society, Palestinian Authoity head Mahmoud Abbas declared.

Abbas’ anti-Semitic lecture was condemned by the United States, the European Union, the United Nations, Germany and others.

Israel’s UN Ambassador Danny Danon called on the UN Security Council to condemn Abbas’ hateful remarks.

“Apparently, a Holocaust denier remains a Holocaust denier,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated. “I call upon the international community to condemn the grave antisemitism of Abu Mazen [Abbas’s nickname], which should have long since passed from this world.” The foreign ministry said Abbas was promoting hatred towards Israel and the Jewish people.

Considering the Palestinian Authority’s continuous incitement to terror against Israeli civilians, this should really come as no surprise.
