Abbas: "I will not accept a Jewish State"
Speaking at the Palestinian Youth Parliament, Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas declares his refusal to accept the Jewish State. "You can call yourselves whatever you want, but I will not accept it." "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. 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."
