Dozens of prominent Palestinian residents of Jerusalem published an appeal to the Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Monday, asking him not to make concessions to Israel over the holy city in upcoming peace talks negotiations. The full-page newspaper ad was a reminder of the difficulties facing Abbas and Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, as they prepare for a Mideast conference in Annapolis, Maryland, at the end of this month. The ad, signed by 108 prominent Jerusalemites, including top Christian and Muslim leaders, did not make specific demands. However, the signatories asked Abbas not to negotiate a deal that would "violate our national rights."
