    Abbas makes sense. the arab demand of an influx of over 4 million arabs into Israel would contradict the recognition of Israel being jewish. They agree they can't have to both ways, that’s the reason for the lack of recognition. the arabs agree to the 2 state solution, but just fails to say outright that they want the state of Israel too. just like Abbas will never agree to Israel being Jewish, Israel will never agree to even 1 of those arabs coming to israel, splitting of Jerusalem, giving away of hevron, the pal state being anything other than demilitarized, control of any major water or energy resources. In the end of the day, its not like the pal arab signature is worth anything anyway, they are full of lies and deceit. Its all over for the pal arabs here in Israel, they should just go back to jordan the real Palestine, we’ll import someone else to build our homes and fix our roads.
