RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- President Mahmoud Abbas on Tuesday hailed the creation of the Palestine Liberation Organization as the most significant event in Palestinian people's history.

"(Ahmad) Shuqeiri was asked to figure out what the Palestinians wanted, and he returned with the convention for the PLO," Abbas said at a meeting to mark the 49th anniversary of the PLO's founding.

"We should remind ourselves that this is the most important and significant event in the history of the Palestinian people," the president added.

"Before the PLO we had no political presence but after its creation we did."

The president also expressed his condolences to the family of Fatah leader Abdul Aziz Shahin, who died in Gaza on Tuesday.

"We should remind ourselves that this is the most important and significant event in the history of the Palestinian people," the president added. Shame on you Abbas. Fountains and monuments to failed leaders, paid for by charity, are not accomplishments to be proud of. Neither are the villas the PA has built. You should be ashamed to open your mouth on the anniversary of the PLO, let alone pat yourself on the back. You are a imbecile.

'Palestinians are an indigenous people who either live in, or originate from, historical Palestine. .Although the Muslims guaranteed security and allowed religious freedom to all inhabitants of the region, the majority converted to Islam and adopted Arab culture.'

The PLO has already achieved so much, the fact that the Majority of the World supports the principle of two-states for two people is an achievement in itself and seeing Palestine being accepted into the human family at the United Nations and defined as a nation with borders was itself a wonderfull moment that will only be eclipsed when the Israeli occupation ends and Palestine regains her freedom and independence.

Hey David Clarke...when "Palestine regains her freedom and independence"??? Please share with us when Palestine was free and independent. Give us some dates and other facts, will ya, cuz I can't find it in wikipedia at all. "Regain" it from when? From where? You sound like you actually believe the propaganda.

Vaguely like Laval commemorating Bastille Day. No offense: I have a relatively high opinion of Laval. He tried to negotiate with the ogre as well.

To David Clarke #7: 'The PLO has already achieved so much, the fact that the Majority of the World supports the principle of two-states for two people is an achievement in itself' Farcical. How much of Britain do you think the Britons should get? Would you commend the guy who held out for 22% and failed?

I do not condemn Abbas. However, AT BEST he will stand as involuntary evidence of the futility of attempting to negotiate with the devil. I suppose he's made it absolutely clear there is no alternative to a Palestine, free from the river to the sea. So quit whining, and screwing around, and figure out the best way from here to there. Victory is inevitable. You just have figure out how to take it.

David Clark "The PLO has already achieved so much, the fact that the Majority of the World supports the principle of two-states for two people is an achievement in itself" The first time a two-state solution was offered, the entire world already embraced it - or at least the UN did, which voted in 1947 to partition Palestine into two states, one for the Jews and one for the Arabs. The Jews accepted it, the Arabs did not. They still do not. Read that convention Abbas thinks is still so fine.
