Abbas says willing to address Knesset on own terms

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has said he is willing to address the Knesset on the issues he wants to speak about, which not necessarily in line with those insisted by Prime Minister Netanyahu. 
In response to the premier's call Monday on Abbas to address the body and recognize Israel's right to exist as a Jewish state, the Palestinian leader told the Voice of Russia he would make a speech in the Israeli parliament "but only in order to say what I want to say and not what [Netanyahu] wants to hear."
