Abbas, Saudi Arabian King Abdullah Talk on New PA State

Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas visited Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah, Tuesday, for talks on the proposed new Arab state within Israel's current borders. Saudi Arabia has been in the forefront of reviving its 2002 proposal that the Arab League recognize Israel after the Jewish state surrenders all of Judea and Samaria, including the Old City in Jerusalem.

The plan includes the demands that several million foreign Arabs be allowed to immigrate to Israel, based on the claim that they are descendants of Arabs who fled the area during the War of Independence in 1948.
