JPost: Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas dispatched delegations to Moscow and Beijing on Tuesday, as part of efforts to find new sponsorship for the peace process, Palestinian news agency Wafa reported.
The move came as Ahmad Majdalani, a PLO executive committee member who is leading the delegation to China, ruled out any Palestinian officials meeting with US peace process envoy Jason Greenblatt during his upcoming visit to the region. “No one from the Palestinian side is going to meet with Jason Greenblatt, officially or unofficially,” Majdalani told The Jerusalem Post.
Majdalani told the Voice of Palestine radio station that the delegations would carry a message from Abbas to Russia and China about finding new sponsorship for the peace process within the framework of the UN to replace US sponsorship.
Abbas has said repeatedly that the US has forfeited its role as a mediator due to President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. more …
Opinion: Even Ali Khamenei (Iran) is not a deceitful as the Edomite Abbas. Even Khaled Mashal (Hamas) is not as big a liar as Mahmoud Abbas, and even Hassan Nasrallah (Hezbollah) is not as two-faced as Mahmoud Abbas.
Khamenei, Mashal and Nasrallah are right up front with their intentions: Death to America the big Satan and Death to Israel the little Satan.
But Mahmoud Abbas talks peace while inserting a literal knife in the back. The stabbing/car ramming that began in 2015 has only slowed down since Donald Trump’s election, and now that Trump took his stand on Jerusalem, we can expect bloodshed to ramp up while Abbas runs around the globe receiving support from an Israel-hating world.
Sometimes we scratch our heads and wonder why the Lord God tarries? The answer comes from Habakkuk 2:3 KJV:
“For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.”
