Abbas pretends to US students the PA is “not against the Jews,” all can practice religion at Jerusalem holy sites

PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas in meeting with American students from Harvard University: "We are honestly not against the Jews. No. The Jews, the Christians, the Muslims – for us they are equal... Regarding East Jerusalem, we will say that East Jerusalem is the capital of Palestine, West Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, and between them is a kind of cooperation. But the holy sites will remain open to the three [monotheistic] religions at all times. And it will be forbidden to prevent any person – Christian, Jew, Muslim – from going and performing his religious rituals."
