    Who is kidding you, Sam? Abbas doesn't want to annex pieces of Israel. He just wants Israel to give up their occupation of anything East of the Green Line, which is the currently recognized boundary of the State of Israel. However, Israelis insist that anything taken in warfare constitutes ownership, a concept which is outdated and was universally rejected with the conclusion of World War II. But Bibi continues to think that peace is a commodity to be haggled over as his ancestors haggled over the price of wheat in the local market. What the world finds disgusting is that while Bibi's right hand offers peace, his left continues to grab more and more of Palestinian territory, such duplicity as the world has not seen since the days Hitler grabbed the Sudetenland! Hitler's argumentr was that since some Germans lived there, the Sudetenland belonged to Germany. Sound familiar? It should! It is current Israeli policy.
