President Mahmoud Abbas’ Statement

By H.E. President Mahmoud Abbas

If people were offended by my statement in front of the PNC, especially people of the Jewish faith, I apologize to them.

I would like to assure everyone that it was not my intention to do so, and to reiterate my full respect for the Jewish faith, as well as other monotheistic faiths.

I would also like to reiterate our long held condemnation of the Holocaust, as the most heinous crime in history, and express our sympathy with its victims.

Likewise, we condemn anti- Semitism in all its forms, and confirm our commitment to the two- state solution, and to live side by side in peace and security.”
