Iran Lied? Abbas Lies!

I just saw that Abbas apologized for his antisemitism.

Here:
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has walked back on comments he made that accused Israeli rabbis of calling for the poisoning of Palestinian water wells. He apologized for offending Jewish people around the world with a classic anti-Semitic trope During a speech he made Thursday at the European Parliament in Brussels, Abbas said: “Only a week ago, a number of rabbis in Israel announced, and made a clear announcement, demanding that their government poison the water to kill the Palestinians. Isn't that clear incitement to commit mass killings against the Palestinian people?”

Oh, sorry, that was from 2016.

Here, from today:

Abbas Apologizes to 'Jewish People' for Offensive Comments, 
Condemning Holocaust and anti-Semitism

And he adds the "if" trick, meaning who would be offended?

"If people were offended by my statement, especially people of the Jewish faith, I apologize to them. I would like to assure everyone that it was not my intention to do so, and to reiterate my full respect for the Jewish faith, as well as other monotheistic faiths.

Iran Lied?

Abbas Lies!

UPDATE

And Abbas is re-elected as PLO head.

Well, that's a resounding "we-don't-give-a-_ _ _ _-".


UPDATE

[Abbas'] remarks are not just a reflection of his personal opinion but rather the Palestinian belief system. They constitute the basis of the false Palestinian narrative that holds there is no such thing as the Jewish people. The Jews are merely a religious group and as a result, they have no right to a nation state. In a statement following the outcry over his remarks, Abbas apologized not to the Jewish people but "members of the Jewish religion." The Jews have no historical connection to Palestine and there is therefore no basis for their demand for a return to Palestine. As the descendants of the Canaanites, the Palestinians are the only indigenous people here. The Jews are intolerable beings, which is why the Europeans created Zionism in a bid to both rid themselves of the Jews and defend against the strengthening of the Arab nations and Islam.

Yes, Abbas (and many Arabs) want to believe that Jewish is a faith and not a race, thereby claiming they cannot be indigenous and thus have no claim to the land of Israel.They want Jewish Israelis to return to France, Germany, or wherever they came from.

Legalities aside, archeological proofs aside, and genetics aside,*
many still believe that Arabs invented the Hindu-Arabic Numeral System** and that the earth is flat.
