Abbas: Israel is Aiming to Divide the Temple Mount


Chairman of the Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas has no intention of discussing Prime Minister Netanyahu’s Call for the PA to recognize Israel as a Jewish state.

Instead, Abbas claims that the negotiations are closer than ever to total implosion and failure. He blames Israel for evading its promises of releasing imprisoned terrorists and accuses Israel of striving towards a division of Temple Mount in a manner akin to the current division of the Cave of Machpela in Hebron, burial site of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Sara, Rebecca and Leah.
