Aluf Benn says that (PA Chair Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) is opposed to terror and wants diplomatic negotiations) and he is right but then he should have continued the second part of the paragraph which would have read something like; but Israel had no interest in reaching a peaceful solution based on negotiations and implementation of several UN and Security Council resolution that would ultimately lead to its withdrawal from the occupied territories and the establishment of a fully independant Palestinian state living in peace with Israel. Furthermore Benn should have explained that Israel did everything it could to weaken Abbas by violating previous agreements since its priority has always been the building of settlments and the annexation of large chunks of the West Bank while keeping a stranglehold on the life of the Palestinians. Had he said that, then Benn would have been spot on.
