Abbas responds to Obama

In case you thought I was off-base (I know you didn't) when I wrote "that 'undivided' part ["Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel, and it must remain undivided."] is going to be rather a stumbling block to his claims to be working for a Palestinian state, because no Palestinian leadership, however compromised, is ever going to accept such a situation," alongs comes that compromised leadership in person, Mahmoud Abbas, to back me up:
"This statement is totally rejected," Abbas told reporters.

"The whole world knows that holy Jerusalem was occupied in 1967 and we will not accept a Palestinian state without having Jerusalem as the capital of a Palestinian state."
