Do you ever bother to actually try to learn something that's true? Yes, that Youtube video is written in Arabic.
But PLAY THE VIDEO. Mahmoud Abbas is speaking in ENGLISH in the video. He is specifically trying to reach out to the English speaking audience here, Americans in particular.
I think you do speak English JML? Here's the video again:
The first thing Abbas says in the video is
As far as I am here in this office, THERE WILL BE NO ARMED INTIFADA, NEVER. WE DON'T WANT TO USE TERROR, WE DON'T WANT TO USE FORCE, WE DON'T WANT TO USE WEAPONS, WE WANT TO USE DIPLOMACY, WE WANT TO USE POLITICS, WE WANT TO USE NEGOTIATIONS, WE WANT TO USE PEACEFUL RESISTANCE, THAT'S IT.
Later on, he talks about accepting the fact that Palestinians will never be able to their pre-1948 homes, and that for him, a two state solution would be the 1967 borders INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNIZED (including the United States) as the official borders of Israel.
Open up that video with Google Chrome and use the Translate function. You will see all sorts of comments posted by Palestinian supporters denouncing Abbas as a traitor.
And so, for taking this bold step forward, for peace, Abbas gets a lot of flak from his own people, and gets..... nothing ... in return, from Netanyhu.
