Emir to Haniyeh: 'Here's some money. Go support Abbas!'
"... Abbas made the rare if symbolic concession to Israel on Thursday, saying he had no permanent claim on the town from which he was driven as a child during the 1948 war of the Jewish state's founding.Ismail Haniyeh said on Friday that Abbas' remarks on the right of return for Palestinian refugees, aired on Israel's Channel 2, were "extremely dangerous".
Linah Alsaafin, a Ramallah-based activist, told Al Jazeera that Abbas' statements "prove that he has lost touch with the Palestinian people ... Considering his presidential term is expired since 2009, he really doesn't have the legitimacy to act in the name of the Palestinians and come out with such outlandish statements."
"Abbas has succeeded in uniting the Palestinian people against his words, they are united in disgust and protest,” Alsaafin said...."
