From Asharq al Awsat:
Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas said Saturday that outsiders will be deported from the Palestinian land to the “dustbin of history” because this land is for the Canaanites.
“We are the Canaanites,” he stressed.
Addressing the crown in Jalazone refugee camp in Ramallah, Abbas said the Palestinians will remain “steadfast, patient and resilient.”
“We will remain in our homeland, and the outsiders on this land has no right in this country. The land is for its inhabitants, this land is for the Canaanites who were here 5,000 years ago, and we are the Canaanites.”
It doesn’t sound like he recognizes Israel, does it?
Mahmoud Abbas’ family name almost certainly comes from the Abbasid dynasty, whose founder came from Mecca. Very few Palestinian families can trace their ancestry in the land more than 1200 years (Christians being the exception, at least the few who are left.) Most of them have family genealogy pages on Facebook and elsewhere that proudly trace their heritage to Arabia.
Abbas also laid a wreath on the grave of terrorists from the Jalazone camp.
