There is no need for an intifada, the Palestinians can achieve their goals peacefully, said Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas last week to Russia Today during a visit to Moscow.
"My opinion is that today there’s no need for Palestinians to go back to fighting. The balance of forces is not in our favor, so it will only lead to the country’s destruction," he said.
"Our people can achieve their goals through peaceful means, like it happened at the UN. But it’s not easy," he added.
