The settlement should be based upon the 1967 borders. When we say the settlement should be based on these borders, President Abbas understands. We understand. And everybody understands that the greater goal cannot be accomplished in one go. If Israel withdraws from Jerusalem, evacuates the 650 000 settlers, and dismantles the wall, what will become of Israel? It will come to an end…If we say that we want to wipe Israel out, it’s too difficult, it’s not acceptable policy to say so. Don’t say these things to the world. Keep it to yourself.
