Abbas said: “There are no borders to Israel, and international law is against any recognition of it.” That statement is essentially giving himself permission for the total destruction of Israel, and a new genocide of the Jews. Despite this savage’s reputation as a “moderate,” that is no surprise. The Palestinian Authority, of which he is the President, routinely heralds and honors bloodthirsty jihadis who slaughter Jews. The celebration of murderers as heroes is essential to the annihilationist zeitgeist of the Muslims in the Palestinian Authority. The celebrities of the Palestinian Authority are mass murderers. It is taught to the children in the schools that it is a grand and glorious thing to murder Jews. The celebration of Jew-hatred is relentlessly thematic on Palestinian Authority television, as well as in music, books and, of course, in the mosques. The PA carries on its policy of honoring jihad murderers by naming streets, squares, and schools after them. Jewish genocide is aspirational.
President Trump is reversing Obama’s pro-jihad course. He has enraged Abbas by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. He must continue on this course, instead of coddling and rewarding this savagery, as the rest of the world does. In order for President Trump design effective foreign policy in the Middle East, he must understand that Islamic Jew-hatred is in the Quran. Hatred and genocide are righteous under Islam.
“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.”
