Mahmoud Abbas (Arabic: محمود عباس) (born March 26, 1935) is the current president of the Palestine National Authority. He is a member of the political party Fatah.[1]

Political views

On March 15, 2013 Abbas explained that “there is no difference between our policies and those of Hamas.”[2] In his New ear’s speech, Abbas praised Haj Amin al-Husseini, a instigator of pogroms against Jews and ally of Adolf Hitler.[3] In addition Abbas is a Holocaust denier.[4] While accusing Israel of committing an “ethnic cleansing”, Abbas stated that “no Jew, civilian or otherwise, would be permitted to live in the future Palestinian state he envisions.”[5]

Abbas refuses to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. In July 2016 Netanyahu created a video in which he asked Abbas to fire his advisor Sultan Abu al Einein, who had called to slit the throat of every Israeli. He also criticized Abbas' political party Fatah for praising a terrorist attack which murdered 24 civilians on Facebook and called him to instruct the party's social media manager to stop the praising of such terrorist attacks.[6]
