    It's fair enough that Abbas says there must be not a single Israeli (settler or soldier) in the State of Palestine once it is established. Otherwise, how would the State of Palestine be sovereign? Israel should not have Palestinian "citizens" (whether Christian or Muslim, who are subject to Palestinian jurisdiction rather than Israeli jurisdiction) living within Israel. There are pf course Israelis (21%) who are of Palestinian ancestry, but they are not Palestinian "citizens". They are Israeli citizens, subject to Israeli jurisdiction. Abbas has stated previously that Jews may remain in the State of Palestine if they so wish as Palestinian citizens, under the same laws as other Palestinians, both Christian and Muslim. But not as Israeli citizens. This is fair. And indeed some Jews, although very few, do in fact live in thr Palestinian terretories as PA citizens rather than as Israelis. It is Israeli citizens (not Jews per se) who cannot remain. That's a question of sovereignty. Not of anti-Semitism.
