Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said on Friday to Cairo reporters that he means to re-examine agreements signed with Israel, even considering ending them, Channel 10 news reported.


He said that "the doors of the Palestinian people are locked to America" and that "until it takes back its decisions against the Palestinian people no Palestinian is to meet with the U.S. leadership no matter what his role is."   
"I will not end my life as a traitor" [ to the Palestinian cause] he said, "I can say no [to the U.S. Peace Deal] and with me are the Palestinian people who also say no."
