YNet News: “Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas confirmed on Sunday that he will soon visit “sister country” Iran, even though Tehran has denied such a visit would take place.
The PA president referred to Iran as “a neighboring, sister country,” saying “Our relations with it were not good, but we have an embassy in Tehran, and therefore it recognizes us.”
The embassy in Tehran used to serve as Israel’s embassy, until the 1979 Islamic Revolution, following which it was handed to the Palestinians.”
Opinion: The Edomite Abbas has been relatively quiet since scoring Vatican support for an illegitimate Palestinian state in the land promised to Abraham, and his descendants after him, as an everlasting and forever gift from Almighty God (Genesis 17:7-8).
The really incredible part is that Abbas resigned his position as PLO chief but retains the title of president despite the fact that his term ended in 2009 and there has been no election since.
