ABBAS a Satmar Chasid? says "I will never recognize Israel as a Jewish State!"

President Mahmoud Abbas said there is “no way” he will recognize Israel as a Jewish state and rumor has it that he said that he has the backing of the Holy Satmar Brothers! Satmar also doesn't recognize Israel just like the "meraglim!"Satmar follow the "shita" of the first Satmar Rebbe, R' Yoel Teitelbaum, a rabid ant-Zionist, even though it was the Zionists that saved his life from the Nazis!  

Abbas’ comments signaled that the gaps between him and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu remain wide after seven months of mediation efforts by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.
Speaking to youth activists of his Fatah party, he suggested he would stand firm again, particularly over the demand that the Palestinians recognize Israel as a Jewish state.
“They are pressing and saying, `no peace without the Jewish state’,” he said, though not spelling out who is applying the pressure. “There is no way. We will not accept.”
Netanyahu has said such recognition is required as proof that the Palestinians are serious about peace. Abbas has noted that the Palestine Liberation Organization recognized the state of Israel in 1993 and said this is sufficient.
He also said the Palestinians must recognize Israel as a Jewish state, a demand that appears to have U.S. support, based on recent speeches by Kerry and Obama.
Abbas said in his speech late Thursday that he would not compromise on a demand for a Palestinian capital in east Jerusalem.
Earlier Thursday, Abbas’ aide Mohammed Ishtayeh said he believes the Kerry proposal will only refer to such a capital “in Jerusalem,” raising fears the Palestinians will be asked to make do with a small part of the eastern sector.
