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. He did not say "Jews". That is a distinction you constantly fail to make. How would the State of Palestine be sovereign, if Israelis live under Israeli jurisdiction while in the State of Palestine? Israel does not have Palestinian "citizens" (whether Christian or Muslim) living within Israel who are subject to Palestinian jurisdiction rather than Israeli jurisdiction. There are of 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 territories as PA citizens rather than as Israelis. It is "Israeli" citizens (not Jews per se) who cannot remain. He said Israelis. That's a question of sovereignty. Not of anti-Semitism.
