Israeli Arab party urges Abbas to quit over Goldstone report

Oct. 6, 2009 9:43 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 7, 2009 2:43 P.M.)
Bethlehem - Ma'an/Agencies - The Balad party, representing Arabs and Palestinians in Israel, plans to call for the resignation of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Saturday following the Palestinian leader's failure to push through a resolution on the Goldstone commission.

The report suggested taking Israel and Hamas militants to the International Criminal Court over allegations of war crimes during Israel's Operation Cast Lead, but action on the accusations was postponed, allegedly under American pressure, until March 2010.

The Israeli newspaper Haaretz said the party's leader Jamal Zahalka was leading the call.
