• Abbas to propose new Mideast peace talks timetable


    NEW YORK CITY: Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas vowed on Monday to present a new timetable for peace talks with Israel when he addresses world leaders at the United Nations later this week. “I say today to Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu: end the occupation, make peace,” Abbas told an audience in New York. In a passionate address to students in the Cooper Union hall where Abraham Lincoln once called for an end to slavery, Abbas said: “The international community has the responsibility to protect our people, living under the terror of settlers, an occupying army.”
