Palestinian propaganda has long fooled the world into believing that Palestinian leaders sought a two-state solution. All along, its leaders have sought a one-state solution: Israel’s obliteration in accordance with the PA, Fatah and Hamas Charters, and in keeping with efforts by the surrounding Arab States to obliterate Israel. This jihadist ambition was glaring, despite the reluctance of authorities globally to admit it and demand that such an ambition be removed from the charters if indeed there was a genuine interest in a two-state solution.
Now that Jerusalem has been declared by Trump to be the capital of Israel, Palestinian leaders are reiterating that they do not even recognize Israel’s right to exist. Mahmoud Abbas has now taken the opportunity — in the face of Palestinian hysteria over the Trump decision — to proclaim that “there are no borders to Israel, and international law is against any recognition of it.”
But regarding “Palestine,” he has declared: “We are a state and an authority, and we have borders and we have the right to get the world’s recognition of us.” The Organization of Islamic Cooperation has long recognized “Palestine” as a state, boasting of its 57 members, when it is really a 56-state organization.
Abbas has also vowed in past that not one Israeli will be allowed to live in a Palestinian state.
“Abbas Says Palestinians To Seek Full United Nations Membership”, by Ben Lynfield, Jerusalem Post, December 19, 2017:
The Palestinians will seek full membership in the United Nations and join 22 international organizations in response to US recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said in remarks at the start of a meeting with senior Palestinian leaders in Ramallah on Monday night.
Abbas elaborated on his theme from last week’s Islamic Conference Organization emergency meeting in Istanbul to the effect that Israel is unworthy of international recognition.
“There are no borders to Israel, and international law is against any recognition of it,” he said. “But they deceived the General Assembly by saying they would implement resolutions 181 and 194,” the former providing for the partition of Palestine and the latter the return of Palestinian refugees. “Until today they have not implemented them.”
Regarding the UN, Abbas said, according to Wafa, the official Palestinian news agency: “We will go once again and many times to get full membership. We are a state and an authority, and we have borders and we have the right to get the world’s recognition of us.”
The often angry remarks made no mention of abrogating the 1993 Oslo agreement, which was expected to be discussed at the meeting though not be annulled. The leadership meeting, including the PLO Executive Committee, the Fatah Central Committee, PA cabinet and security chiefs, was aimed at formulating a new strategy in light of US recognition of Jerusalem, which in the Palestinian view disqualifies the US from a mediating role in ending the conflict.
Having hoped for the last decade that the US could deliver Israeli concessions for a Palestinian state with east Jerusalem as its capital, Abbas must struggle now to come up with a new agenda. US President Donald Trump’s declaration did not uphold support for Palestinian statehood and was widely interpreted by Palestinians as giving Israel a green light to expropriate more land and build more settlements in the West Bank. PLO Executive Committee member Hanan Ashrawi termed it a “game changer.”
