THe comparison to a Nike ad is a very poor choice of words. I am sure most people would not want to trivialise the conflict and the peace process in this way. He does make a fair point. There is a difference beyween a negotiating position and a pre-condition and he has been unfairly criticised for setting pre-conditions when he is stating a position to take into negotiations. It is one thing too appear strong but Abbas will start to look extreme if he keeps rejecting these open offers to negotiate. Start talking!!
