Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Thursday visited Hebron for the first time since he took office in 2005 and demanded that the settlers get out. "Hebron is ours, and they have to leave if they want peace," he said. Abbas also called on Israel to accept a 2002 Arab peace initiative, which offers peace between Israel and the Arab world in exchange for Israel's withdrawal from the West Bank, Gaza Strip and Golan Heights. "Come to the ocean of peace that starts from Mauritania and ends in Indonesia," Abbas said.
