ED-NOTE – The Times Of Israel explains Abbas’ decision as a protest “at the decision of US President D. Trump to move his country’s embassy to Jerusalem”. But that makes no sense when we consider that the delegation led by Nancy Pelosi was entirely comprised of Democratic US officials who are all anti-Trump and who had precisely criticized Trump’s decision to move the US embassy to Jerusalem. There are other reasons which led Abbas to boycott Pelosi and her friends of Israel, reasons which neither the Times Of Israel nor Haaretz reported and which Time will divulge in due course.
My Comment: Perhaps he recognizes that Pelosi With her Democrats are a TROJAN Horse. They care not about Palestinians and I would think Abbas prefers to speak directly to Trump which makes a whole lotta sense to me.
