Headline: “President [Abbas]: The Israeli escalation against [Fatah-Hamas] reconciliation is at its peak; Hamas need not recognize Israel”
     “President Abbas said: ‘Hamas is not being asked to recognize Israel, and we will create a government of technocrats. We will not ask Hamas to recognize Israel.’ At the same time, he stated: ‘The next government will include technocrat ministers who will be accepted in the international arena, in the local arena, and everywhere. The next government will be [serving] for a short time, and it will be committed to the policy of the PLO.’”

From meeting between Abbas and a delegation from the Women’s Union in Ramallah, following publication of leaked documents concerning Israeli Palestinian negotiations by Al-Jazeera:
     Mahmoud Abbas
: “When some 120 Israeli figures came here, they said, ‘What’s your opinion concerning the Jewish state?’, and I said that we wouldn’t agree to it. We know what they mean by it, and therefore we shall not agree to a Jewish state…” One of their [Israeli] offers [during the negotiations] was that perhaps we would agree to territory and population exchanges, and they mentioned by name some villages in the Triangle [Israel region bordering West Bank with high Arab population]. However, [Israeli Arab] Member of the Israeli Parliament Muhammad Barakeh spoke out yesterday against them…
The Palestinian Authority… has stated that this is a red line, and it is impossible that we would agree to territory and population exchanges…
We emphasize that all residents inside the Green Line [Israeli Arabs] will remain inside. We shall not under any circumstances accept [into the Palestinian state] a single resident from inside the Green Line, and everyone knows why.”
Abbas: If we recognize Israel as a Jewish state, Israel will expel Israeli-Arabs

Mahmoud Abbas, PA Chairman and Head of Fatah:
     “Palestinians will have the final word if negotiations with Israel fail, President Mahmoud Abbas said Sunday… ‘We met our obligations, but you [Israel] did not, and so we will be discharged from obligations.’...
Abbas reiterated his refusal to recognize Israel as a Jewish state. ‘There are one and a half million Arabs in Israel, and if we agree on Israel as Jewish state, that will be enough reason to expel them...’"

Mahmoud Abbas, PA Chairman, speech in Cuba:
     "It is a great honor for me to be here today at the Cuban Friendship House… I have always sensed the warmth of the relations in every meeting with Cuban authorities…
I hope to receive President Castro for a visit to our country, Palestine, when Palestine is liberated from Israeli occupation, and when we have a Palestinian state with its capital in the honored Jerusalem… We are struggling through peaceful means in order to achieve our rights; we have therefore announced that we go along with international legitimacy, with the UN resolutions since '47 to this day. We want these resolutions to be implemented, and for [UN decisions of] international legitimacy to assume their rightful place. We do not want double criteria, whereby resolutions are implemented in one place but not implemented somewhere else…
We demand of the world to call upon Israel to implement these resolutions and to halt the settlement activity in our land, and to suffice with the territory apportioned to it in the UN resolution."
Abbas: "I will not accept a Jewish State" 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Apr. 27, 2009
Mahmoud Abbas, PA Chairman and Head of Fatah:
     "The 'Jewish state.' What is a 'Jewish state?' We call it, the 'State of Israel.' You can call yourselves whatever you want. But I will not accept it. And I say this on a live broadcast... It's not my job to define it, to provide a definition for the state and what it contains. You can call yourselves the Zionist Republic, the Hebrew, the National, the Socialist [Republic] call it whatever you like. I don't care."

Palestinian government recognizes Israel - for money transfers

Abbas to Condoleezza Rice: "Hamas must recognize Israel"
[The Jerusalem Post, Oct. 4, 2006]
Abbas to Arabs, broadcast on PA TV and Al-Arabiya (Dubai):
    
"It is not required of Hamas, nor of Fatah, nor of the Popular Front, to recognize Israel. Every person has the right to say, 'I do not recognize,' okay? It's your right. It is the right of any organization. But the government which will be formed, and which will function opposite the Israelis on a daily basis - how can this government, or these ministers, not recognize their counterparts, and then solve people's problems? The Palestinian finance minister has to come to an agreement with the Israeli finance minister about the transfer of the money. So how can he make an agreement with him if he does not recognize him? So I do not demand of Hamas nor any others to recognize Israel. But from the government that works with Israelis in day-to-day life, yes."
