Abbas: Intifada Is a Peaceful Popular Uprising

Even as Palestinian terrorists continue to attack Israelis, with knives, with vehicles, and with guns, Palestinian leadership does not call this terror what it is. Arutz Sheva reports that Palestinian Authority head Mahmoud Abbas has stated that the current wave of violence is actually a peaceful popular uprising:

Abbas once again expressed his support for the French political initiative, which seeks to set up a support group of the permanent Security Council members, some Arab and European states and international organizations.

"There is a need to convene an international peace conference in order to extract the current deadlock in the peace process, and that the Palestinians intend to appeal to the Security Council to get resolutions which will cease all settlement in the Palestinian territories," said Abbas.

Abbas dubbed the current intifada as a "popular peaceful uprising" initiated as a proportional response to the "occupation", Israel's non-commitment to implement agreements, damage to the holy places of Islam and Christianity, arrests, house demolitions, killing and expulsion of Palestinians, and the "siege" on Gaza.
