UN's Partition of Jewish land in 1948 meant two states- one for Jews, one for Arabs. Arabs rejected it back then they keep rejecting it now. Israel accepted 800,000 Jewish refugees from Arab countries, Pals have to accept Arab refugees. They reject recognition of Israel as Jewish state because they want Israel to accept millions of Arabs they claim descendants of 1948 refugees. That would make 1.5 Palestinian states and 0.5 Jewish state. It's not going to work, Abbas. Stop bleffing.
