Combined with continued warfare from Gazastan, all positions taken by Abbas effectively kill any chance of successful negotiations: 1) No retreat on Arab "right-of-return" to Israel instead of settling them in the PA state. 2) Abbas rejection of "2-states-for-2-peoples", Arab State and a Jewish State, as UN, EU and Road Map demands - Abbas wants Arab State, no Jewish State. 3) Abbas demand for all Jerusalem, no Jews allowed. 4) Abbas demand for "every inch" of West Bank. 5) Abbas rejection of any agreement with no "sovereign safe passage" across sovereign Israel. 6) Arab League backing for all of the above There is ZERO possibility any Israeli government is going to agree to ANY of these "non-negotiable" demands. If Abbas had made them during Oslo negotiations, they'd all still be in Tunis. No reason not to build homes for Israelis in HarHoma. Future is 100% clear - No PA state, just a 6-8 semi-autonomous Arab "Liechtensteins" separated by Israeli soil, Gaza a smoking hole.
