Abbas has no power to control anything and any decision he makes will be repudiated by all of the terror groups hamas included. So talk is talk and with abbas and all the islamic countries being 1000% hypocritical by saying a jewish state in Israel would be racist...FU. Not one arab/ islamic country on the planet has any idea what toleration or peaceful coesistence means. Israel, the little country is for the JEWS. Arabs and muslims have their so called holy lands where they can indiscriminate kill whoever they please. Get out of Israel. Go to your lands so you can produce nothing and beg the world for more handouts
