Mahmoud Abbas, President of the Palestinian Authority, said today in Ramallah that he would not recognize Israel as a Jewish State. He remarked, "A Jewish state, what is that supposed to mean? You can call yourselves as you like, but I don't accept it and I say so publicly."
Article 4, Section 1 of the Palestinian Authority's Basic Law states, "Islam is the official religion in Palestine."
Once again, Islam seeks for itself what it would deny to others.
