“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.”

    I agree, it is not the Palestinians land to give up.

    You can’t give up something that you don’t have and hopefully never get. No more prisoner releases and all of Jerusalem stays with Israel.

      Nice post Andrew. It would be a shanda to give them any more prisoners when these talks are clearly done.
