I can't understand how a reputable anti-occupation newspaper publishes these news items from time to time. The Israeli military censor must be really working hard. According to his interview with Charlie Rose talk show, Abbas spoke about a host of issues with Obama. The most important of which was the issue of borders and security - which are part of the current proximity talks. Everyone - Israel, the PNA, Abbas, Obama - know that the pressure on Israel to lift its blockade is about allowing the access of materials (especially cement and coriander) to the Gaza Strip. Also everyone knows that unless Hamas changes its positions, the allowed goods will be cannelled through the UN, not Hamas. Please don't make yogurt out of our heads with your uncorroborated reports.
