Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday called on Israel to resume negotiations toward a final peace settlement, insisting on a full Israeli pullout from the West Bank, Gaza Strip and east Jerusalem. In a prerecorded speech broadcast on Palestinian TV, Abbas appealed to Israel, "Don't waste the chance of peace." He said a solution depends on Israel "recognizing our national rights, withdrawal from our lands and our Jerusalem, implementation of the international resolutions and finding a just solution and agreed upon to the issue of refugees." "This is a moment of truth," Abbas said. "Peace in this region will not be established without the full Israeli withdrawal from the Arab and Palestinian lands occupied in 1967," he said, referring to the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem. Israel pulled out of Gaza unilaterally last year.
