Abbas said the Palestinians have undergone a transformation since their uprising and Israel’s harsh reprisals left thousands dead. “We changed the culture of terror and violence into a culture of peace and stability here in the West Bank in the last four years,” he said.

LOL!!!! the Palestinian movement and terror have been one and the same for a looong time.

Palestinians remain committed to nonviolence

"remain" committed to nonviolence? Does he know you have to commit to nonviolence first in order to "remain" committed?

The Palestinians want a state in the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem—territories Israel captured in 1967—but have said they are willing to swap some land to enable Israel to keep some of its larger West Bank settlements.

So they want the agreement Israel offered 10 years ago that Arafat turned down so he could continue terrorism? wow.
