CAIRO (Ma'an) -- Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas is scheduled to leave Cairo for Amman Sunday after finishing a series of meetings with Egyptian president Abd al-Fattah al-Sisi and other top officials including chief of Egyptian intelligence Muhammad al-Tuhami.

Abbas also met in Cairo with representatives of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and the left-wing Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine,

Chief of the Palestinian negotiations team Azzam al-Ahmad and director of the Palestinian Authority's general intelligence service Majid Faraj, who is also a member of the team, will also leave Cairo Sunday.

Palestinian officials are visiting Cairo amid an impasse in indirect negotiations with Israel for a lasting ceasefire. The Israeli delegation left Cairo mid-week and has refused to respond to a Palestinian offer that would involve lifting Israel's crippling eight-year siege.

Before leaving Cairo, president Abbas planned to meet Sunday with Algerian foreign minister Ramtane Lamamra. The two are expected to discuss the means to confront and stop the ongoing Israeli aggression in Gaza, according to a top Palestinian official.

The official said that the meetings Abbas held in Cairo were aimed at reaching an agreement with Egypt on the quickest ways "to establish a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital and to foil Netanyahu's plots to isolate Gaza rather than end its blockade."

Asked when the Palestinian negotiation team will return to Cairo, the official said that "after Israel complies with the Palestinian demands, stops its aggression on Gaza and ends the siege imposed on the coastal enclave, the Palestinian delegation including Hamas representatives will immediately accept Egypt's invitation and returns to Cairo."

* ISRAEL will Never "Comply with the Palestinian demands, to stop its" SELF-DEFENSE "and end the siege imposed on the coastal enclave", and "the * PALESTINIAN delegation, including Hamas representatives" can REFUSE "Egypt's invitation to return Cairo" TALKS FOREVER, and Gaza will continue to bleeding and dying, as long as Hamas wants it so !!

* Gaza can have either a comprehensive peace, if Hamas chooses, or even a temporary truce, without conditions, if only Hamas chooses, but * Hamas Chooses Death And Destruction For All Of Gaza, in refusing a comprehensive peace, a temporary truce, or even Cairo talks !!

Mr. Abbas is meeting with everyone accept the one who ultimately has the final say, and that is Mr. Netanyahu. As unpleasent as this may be for him it is a must do! I would like to encourgae Mr. Abbas to make this painful choice and go directly to the source and see what can be done. You never know he might be presently surprised, but even if he is not it's the right thing to do.

- Actually, it is Hamas that has the "ultimate final say, and Not PM Netanyahu", and HAMAS WILL SAY WAR FOREVER, so - Gaza will continue being destroyed roughly every 2 years, and it's civilians will continue being sacrificed as human-shields too !!
