JNS.org – Upon returning Thursday from his visit to the United States, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said at a reception in Ramallah that the Palestinians “will not give up one inch of land” nor yield to “pressures” in the American-brokered peace talks with Israel.

“You are aware of all the conditions and the pressures, but I repeat: We will not give in,” Abbas said, the Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

On the prospect of giving up land, Abbas said, “Not on my watch. I will not let that happen. … Be assured that we will be victorious.”
