JPost – Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has demanded a map for a future Palestinian state before the resumption of any peace talks, Palestinian news agency Ma’an quoted an aide as saying on Friday.

Abbas “wants to know, through a map to be presented by Binyamin Netanyahu to [US Secretary of State John] Kerry, what the prime minister’s view of a two-state solution would be, especially the borders,” Ma’an quoted political adviser Nimr Hammad as saying.

    There is no possible way a map of a Palestinian state could be drawn..the area has been so divided and settled by Israel that there is no place for a contiguous entity to exist.

    The financier of the 1972 Munich attack wouldn’t be demanding unconditional surrender as a precondition if he didn’t believe “Hanoi John” Kerry could deliver.

    A map of a future Palestinian state is absolutely unreasonable. Negotiations have not even started and the demand for the end game is made. Such a demand surely signals that the PLO leadership does not even want to begin to negotiate. Such a demand is a precondition! I hope that Secretary of State John Kerry enjoyed his ride to Israel and that his return trip to Washington will be every bit as enjoyable. The so-called peace talks have just ended before they started!

    I would draw the borders of Abbas state in Syria or Iraq… There is most fun there than in boring Israel, a place where people work, study, pray or sip a coffee in a Tel-Aviv coffeeshop!
