Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas warned Tuesday that his people were on the verge of civil war and said the infighting was worse than living under Israeli military rule. Israel's capture of the West Bank, Gaza and parts of Jerusalem in the 1967 Six Day War was a "black day" for the Palestinians, who paid a heavy price for defeat, Abbas said in a televised speech on the anniversary of the start of the war on June 5, 1967. "Regarding our internal situation, what concerns us all is the chaos, and more specifically, being on the verge of civil war," Abbas said. He said he has spent hundreds of negotiating hours trying to halt the bloodshed from the factional fighting, "realizing that the what is equal to or even worse than occupation is internal fighting."
