Abbas Reaffirms Racist Apartheid Approach

From President Mahmoud Abbas' speech at the Third Meeting of the imams and preachers, Ramallah (via Google translation and my redaction):-

In the name of God the Merciful [?], Praise be to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger Prophet Muhammad and his companions and companions:

Dear brothers and sisters...

...we are not the ones who rejected peace negotiations but we did reject what they Quartet made to be the basis for their decision a few months ago...give us something reasonable.  We say do not give us the Jewish state, we would not accept it nor would we accept such talk, or say that settlement blocs are a fact or that the solution of the problem of refugees is only in the Palestinian state.  We will not accept such talk.  The Quartet cannot impose on us the form of state or to recognize the nature of the Israeli state.  This is not our business.  It is not for us to say the State of Israel is a Jewish or Hebrew, so we will not accept these matters...
