Jerusalem Newswire, Dec. 6, 2004
“plo chief Mahmoud Abbas Sunday reiterated his pledge to pursue Yasser Arafat’s goal of seizing control over eastern Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian Arab state. Throughout the ‘peace’ process, sovereignty over the ancient Jewish capital has been a red-line issue for Israel. Abbas also said that, after a 10-year delay, the pa would finally fulfill its obligations under the ‘Oslo’ agreements. Meanwhile, the Hamas terrorist organization rejected reports it was prepared to accept a ceasefire and recognize Israel’s right to exist within the Jewish state’s pre-1967 borders.”
