    Abbas said today a peace agreement can be signed in 2 months. Will the 2 sides seize the momentum, or will the past be re-hashed yet again? I think we all know the answer to that one.

    Abbas cannot give away the right of return. It is not his to give.

    The Hamas freedom fighters know that Abbas is a traitor to his people and a puppet of Israel. :doubt:

    Good question. How can Abbas make any agreement when his term in office expired in Jan. 2009?

    The whole peace process thing is a sham anyway, so I guess it really does not matter.

    Well, I phrased this question in a way which was more anti-Israel, in a way. What I really meant, was will Israel stop building settlements long enough to conclude a treaty with Abbas? But I think the pro-Arabists on this Board showed why a treaty with any Palestinian leader would be impossible. "Right of return" means an end to Israel. The fact that Abbas is willing to sign a treaty with Israel and grant independence to the West Bank, means he's a traitor to his people. And then everyone wonders why Israel acts the way she does. Okey-dokey.

    First of all, that's hardly the case when Abbas refused to negogiate with Israel while Israel is building settlements, and refused generous offers by Olmert. But more than that, why is someone who wants to make peace with Israel a traitor to the Arab people? That's the mindset that killed Sadat (and Rabin on the Israeli side)? This response by Sunni-Man shows why there will never be peace.

    Abbas is willing to surrender to Israel and give away the right of his people.

    Traitor fits.
