Arab Israeli Conflict
Hi Tech News
Mahmoud Abbas is the head of the Palestinian Authority, a position he undertook in January 2005. He is a member of the Fatah, and has been a chairman of the PLO since November 2004, succeeding Yasser Arafat.
He was born in Safed, and fled with his family to Syria in 1948 when Israel's independence day war broke out. He studied law at the University of Damascus and obtained a PhD degree at the Patrice Lumumba University in Moscow, where he wrote a dissertaion on the "secret relationship between zionism and nazism."
Abbas is married to Amina Abbas and has three sons - two living, and one deceased.
Al-Kafarneh was forced to ask one of his sons to drop out of university. “My message to President Abbas: Lift the sanctions imposed on the families of the martyrs, wounded and prisoners."
PMW exposed that when Abbas spoke with Israeli students he talked about the shared desire for peace, but previously, when he spoke to Palestinians he praised the murderer of two Israeli students as a “heroic brother.”
The Palestinian leader spoke in advance of the anticipated roll out of what US President Donald Trump is calling the “Plan of the Century” to resolve the Israeli-Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
