Bush: PA Arabs Must Choose Between Hamas, Abbas

United States President George Bush said Monday that Palestinian Authority Arabs bear the responsibilty to determine their future.  On the one hand is Hamas, he said, “which has proven that it is obligated to extremism and not to the good of the Palestinian people.”  If PA Arabs choose to follow Hamas, he said, “they will continue to live a life of suffering.”

 

Bush presented PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas as a favorable alternative, saying that Abbas “wants to establish a state without corruption and bloodshed.”  If PA residents choose to follow Abbas, he said, “they will have a state.”
