What Oslo Accords Said About Declaring a Palestine

Nadene Goldfoot
The Oslo accords concerning the Arab "Palestinians" and Israel were signed by both the USA and European countries.  It said that there would be no lateral steps allowed by either the Palestinians or Israel.  Peace was to be negotiatied between Israel and the Palestinians.  By going to the UN on the 21or 22 of September, Abbas is breaking the Olso agreement. 

For a counter measure,  Israel may be able to annex Judea and Samaria (called the West Bank).  This has been suggested by Knesset member Danny Danon as a "day after" plan. He suggests annexing area C which holds major Jewish cities and towns plus rural lands.  It does not include the largest Arab communities.  All of Jerusalem is a part of Israel.  David Pollack found in a survey that 40% of Arabs there would move to stay under Israel authority if East Jerusalem ever came under "Palestine" rule. 

 The reason Israel has not wanted to do this in the first place is that they need to maintain a  Jewish majority in their state as that is why Israel was created in the first place.  The Holocaust showed the leaders that there was a huge need for our own state as we have been scapegoats long enough for other countries.  We've had dhimmi status in Arab countries and do not want this again, as well.  Right now Israel has 1,571,000 or 20.4% Arab citizens already.  The total population of Israel as of May 2011 was 7,746,000  with 5,795,000 Jews.  That's pretty close to the 6 million Jews lost to the Holocaust of 1936 to 1945. 

The idea is backed by The USA's Joe Walsh, a member of the House of Representatives.  He feels that this breaking with the Oslo Accords by Abbas is an affront and that Obama should be very strong against it.  If he can't do this, the House of Reps should show a backing of Israel  this way.
