Beirut - Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is reaching out to Jews around the world to listen to the “Arab point of view” on stalled peace talks with Israel.

Abbas said Friday that Jews should hear the Arab position on negotiations, which mirrors Palestinian demands.

Palestinians say they will not talk unless Israel stops building Jewish housing in the West Bank and east Jerusalem, which they claim for their future state, along with the Gaza Strip.

Israel insists talks must resume without conditions and that settlements and other issues such as security concerns should be resolved through dialogue.

Abbas’ comments in Beirut come days after U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry was in the region shuttling between Israeli and Palestinian leaders in an attempt to restart talks that collapsed in 2008.

Abu Rasha, we know the Arab view: take all of Israel, and kill all the Jews, R"L.

And we also know the Torah view of the Arab: "V'hu yihiyeh pere adam, yado bakol, v'yad kol bo."

Yemach shemo vezichro.

We should not give a dam about their point of view. We need to care only about Jewish self interest, not the interests of those who want to exterminate us.

What is the arab "point of view"? That the jews do not deserve a future and that their ilk has a right to spit on the ground of our holy land? No thanks.
