Abbas suggests he'll continue to talk even if building freeze isn't extended

So now Mahmoud Abbas is hinting - but only hinting - that he's willing to continue talking with the Israeli government even if they don't extend the building freeze:
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is leaving the door open to continue peace negotiations with Israel — even if the settlement construction resumes in the West Bank.

Abbas told American Jewish leaders in New York late Tuesday it would be "very difficult" to continue the talks if building resumes but added that he "cannot say" definitively that he would walk away.
I wonder whom these "leaders" are he spoke with? Because, should they even be speaking with someone like him? Someone who makes statements like the following:
"I cannot say I will leave the negotiations, but it's very difficult for me to resume talks if Prime Minister Netanyahu declares that he will continue his activity in the West Bank and Jerusalem," Abbas said, according to a transcript of the event obtained by The Associated Press.

He urged Israel to extend the building restrictions for several months while the sides negotiate the final borders between Israel and a future Palestine. "At that time, Israelis will be free to build in their territory and the Palestinians the same," he said
Moral equivalence, clear signals he doesn't like Netanyahu, and propaganda use of the country name the Romans came up with, that's Abbas for you. He doesn't fool me, though one has to wonder how much longer he can expect the really rancid members of his public to support him.
