America and Israel need to stand back and take a good look at themselves. Throwing their toys out of the cot like children simply because Palestinians choose to think for themselves and choose to determine their future without American and Israeli permission. Where has Abbas said he will not negotiate? All he has asked is for Israel to abide by International Law and its previous signed agreements and cease settlements. Does he not have a perfect right to do that? How did Israel gain its statehood? Was Israel not once a terrorist driven nation? Was America not created by rebels opposing Britain? It's your free speech of course ,but threats and intimidation will win you no support!
