President Mahmoud Abbas says Palestine no longer bound by agreements with Israel

The “Palestinian” people, a KGB created proxy tasked with taking on “evil” Israel, is now engineering an excuse for further agitating the Jewish state. Before the Americans came to the Middle East, the Soviets were there laying their traps which have effectively worked. The United States is now bogged down, chasing hundreds of terrorist ghosts that are easily replaceable — and with its first anti-American president in history.

 

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has declared he is no longer bound by agreements signed with Israel and called on the United Nations to provide protection for Palestinians, describing Israel’s decades-long military occupation as “unsustainable”. Speaking at the United Nations General Assembly following weeks of rising tensions in Jerusalem and across the West Bank, President Abbas said Israel was destroying the two-state solution.

He described “an apartheid regime that is currently imposed on the territory of the state of Palestine and against the Palestinian people on the one hand, and another regime of privileges and protection to the Israeli settlers on the other hand”.

The agreements – known as the Oslo Accords – were signed in 1995 by Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Rabin and Mr Abbas, who was then Palestine Liberation Organisation negotiator.

The accords resulted in the formation of the Palestinian Authority, a body that, over a five-year period, was meant to assume responsibilities in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, to be followed by talks on borders, the right of return of Palestinian refugees and the status of Jerusalem.

The peace process has since fallen apart many times, no agreements have been reached and there has been one Palestinian intifada and three wars in the besieged Gaza Strip.

“As long as Israel refuses to commit to the agreements signed with us, which render us an authority without real powers, and as long as Israel refuses to cease settlement activities and to release the fourth group of Palestinian prisoners in accordance with our agreements, they leave us no choice but to insist that we will not remain the only ones committed to the implementation of these agreements, while Israel continuously violates them”.
