Abbas Claims All of Israel Before 1967 On Facebook

Nadene Goldfoot
Mahmoud Abbas, Palestinian Authority Chairman is going to the UN to request recognition of Palestine as a non-member state in the UN General Assembly.

He started a facebook page on October 13th where he denies the existence of Israel.  He says that Israel is on "Occupied Land."  He emphasises that he is not talking about the areas of Judea and Samaria (West Bank) but "all the territories that Israel occupied before June 1967."  That would be all of Israel.

He wrote:  "The recognition (by the UN) won't liberate the land the day after, but it will prove our right according to which our land is occupied and not disputed."

He has refused to come to the table to talk with Netanyahu and now discloses what many of us were thinking.  He is not for the two-state solution as he has this proclamation in mind intended to destroy Israel's right to existence.

Abbas's page pictures Jerusalem at the top with the Dome of the Rock in view.  He labels himself as a Ramallah politician.   Right now there are 12,667  talking about it and 61,831 likes on the screen.  The wording is all in Arabic.

Abbas tried to get recognition in 2011 in the UN but failed.   In a duplicity move, he has now sent President Obama a letter saying he will resume talks IF his UN bid succeeds this time.  Our US envoy says that a new PA status would jeopardize the peace process.  Susan Rice is our Ambassador to the UN.  She has served since 2009 to the present.  Of course the peace process would be ruined.  Abbas would have already won something that he is trying to steal outright.

Susan Rice did not stay to listen to Netanyahu's UN speech where he explained Iran's getting so close to making nuclear material to be used in weaponry.  She, like Obama, had no time for him.  Instead, she went to lunch with some foreign ministers.  Hillary Clinton did not stay to listen to him, either, but had been asked to do so by the busy Obama.

John Bolton, former American Ambassador to the UN who served in 2005-2006 was shocked but not surprised at their absence.
