Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas On Friday, the U.S. for peace between Israel and Palestine. The plan was rejected by the UN on Friday. Took place on Friday, when it condemned recent U.S.-broker deals between Israel and the two Gulf states.
In a pre-recorded video message, Abbas complained that “no one has been ordered by the Palestine Liberation Organization to speak or speak on behalf of the Palestinian people.” He claimed that the only way to peace was an independent Palestine based on the 1967 borders as the capital of East Jerusalem.
“We will not kneel or surrender, and we will not deviate from our basic position, and we will overcome,” Abbas said. “The Palestinian state.”
Perhaps in a move that could be seen as distancing itself from the Trump administration’s peace proposals, Abbas announced his plan to convene an international peace conference early next year.
Abbas then took a historic approach Abraham star Israel, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain signed a peace agreement in Washington DC earlier this month – the first such peace agreement between Israel and the Arab world since Jordan and Israel in 1994.
The agreement seeks to normalize relations on a number of issues, including security, tourism and communications. They are regarded as a turning point in the field.
President Trump called it the “dawn of a new Middle East” at a White House ceremony. As described.
But Abbas warned: “When this business continues, there will be no peace, security, stability and coexistence in our region.”
Gilad Erdan, Israel’s joint ambassador to Iraq, said in a statement that Abbas’s speech was “no different from previous ones that have provoked the Jewish state.”
“What was clearer than before is that Abbas is desperate because he knows it’s time to leave.” “He realizes that the peace agreement we have signed with the UAE and Bahrain violates the Palestinian veto of a separate peace agreement between the Arab world and Israel.
“All Abbas added was constant Palestinian denialism.”
After Abbas’s speech, UAE Foreign Minister Anwar Gargash told a group of journalists that the signing of a deal with Israel was polarizing the Arab world, but added that “we have not lost a single friend.” And we have not found a single enemy. “
Speaking of the Palestinian people, Gargash said they were initially expecting a Palestinian reaction, “There is a kind of sulking mood right now.” But he believed that in the long run the UAE would be able to help the Palestinians, “increasingly.”
“The Palestinians are not helping by marginalizing themselves,” he said. “Being out of the room doesn’t really help.” You need to stay inside the room, you need to fight on your corner and you will find a lot of friends who will support you, ‘he said.
Asked by Fox News what would happen if the Israelis decided to move forward with the alliance, he said he would not see a scenario where the Israelis would go back, especially given that the U.S. That deal is broken and it makes it even tougher. To save the Israelites right now.
But he said the suspension of the alliance did not last forever, and told Fox News, “That’s why I think the Palestinians need to get back to the negotiating table.”
