Abbas lies to Obama

Mahmoud Abbas, Chairman of the Palestinian Authority, lied to Obama's face in their recent meeting. That is the conclusion of Palestinian Media Watch which documents official communication by the Palestinian Authority.

For example, Abbas told Obama:

"I say in front of you, Mr. President, that we have nothing to do with incitement against Israel, and we're not doing that," Abbas said. "What we care about is to live in coexistence with Israel in order to bring about the independent Palestinian state that will live side by side with Israel..."

In direct contradiction to Abbas's claim, Palestinian Media Watch documented in a report released this week that PA incitement to hatred and violence and non-recognition of Israel has continued unabated in the month since the start of the proximity talks.

For example, whereas Abbas said to President Obama that he supports "living side by side with Israel," just a few weeks ago official PA TV called for Israelis to leave Israel and "return" to Germany and Poland:

The article goes on to say,

PA TV is owned by the Palestinian Authority and under direct control of the office of Abbas.

In addition, the PA this past month has continued to honor terrorists who have killed Israeli civilians by naming sporting events after them, a practice repeatedly condemned by the Obama administration.

That Abbas would lie to Obama is really not surprising at all. Arafat used to lie to our Presidents all the time. The only surprising thing is that gullible Leftists continue to believe their lies.

You can read the entire report at Palestinian Media Watch or an excerpt at Jihad Watch.
