Abbas says "Israel has Jews and other people". Note "Other people". This is the doorway to allow Mosques in every neighborhood. More and more will pour across the borders, settle, and become citizens. Insurrection from within by legal means. Arabs, Pals, etc could be elected as MKs, thereby reshaping the very nature of Israel. A muslim shape. To the Pals, to recognize Israel as a Jewish State would be admitting they no longer have any designs on ousting the Jews from the region, renaming it Palestine, and wiping away millenia of Jewish presence. I personally believe this should be a non-negotiable point. I cannot stand the thought of "The Islamic Republic of Israel".
