Via Ynet:

The Palestinian president says there’s “no way” he’ll recognize Israel as a Jewish state and accept just a portion of Israeli-annexed east Jerusalem as the Palestinian capital.

Mahmoud Abbas says in comments published Friday by the official WAFA news agency that he withstood US pressure when he sought UN recognition for a state of Palestine and suggested he could do so again.

US Secretary of State John Kerry is to present ideas for the contours of a deal to Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
