Report: Abbas Does Not Rule Out Resuming Armed Conflict with Israel - Roee Nahmias (Ynet News)
Mahmoud Abbas said Thursday that he
does not completely rule out the possibility of resuming the armed conflict with Israel.  In an interview with the Jordanian newspaper al-Dustur, Abbas said he is against an armed conflict at this time, but things may differ in the future.

Abbas also said he objects to Israel's definition as a Jewish state: "We negated the concept in the Annapolis peace conference and it almost ended because of it...they wanted us to state we recognize Israel as a Jewish state in the closing statements, but we wouldn't hear of it."
