Mahmoud Abbas accused Israel of poor faith in peacemaking. In a televised speech Tuesday, the Palestinian Authority president said Israel “is still acting on the basis of unilateral solutions, as if it has no Palestinian partner.” He said Israel had no intention of seeking a permanent peace settlement and accused Israel of fomenting civil war in the West Bank and Gaza Strip by insisting that the Palestinian Authority meet its commitments to crack down on terrorists. Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, while vowing to keep West Bank settlement blocs, has said he would like to see a Palestinian state living alongside the Jewish state, but not at the price of security.
