Palestinian Authority head, Mahmoud Abbas, proposed cancelling the Oslo Accords with Israel at a weekend meeting of the PA leadership, a senior member of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) told AFP on Tuesday.
PLO Executive Committee member Wassel Abu Yusef said Abbas raised the idea of "cancelling the Oslo agreement as well as the associated economic and security arrangements," at the meeting on Saturday and Sunday.
Abu Yusef said that "members of the Palestinian leadership had mixed opinions on the issue, and it was decided to postpone any decision until their next meeting," due to be held after Abbas's return from the UN General Assembly later this month. "It was the first time the Palestinian leadership put the issue of the Oslo agreement on the table since it was signed in 1993," Abu Yusef added.
Earlier this month, the Palestinian Authority -- faced with social unrest over price rises and inability to pay bills despite massive donations -- asked Israel for talks on amending the Paris Protocol, the 1994 agreement that governs economic ties between the two sides.
Abu Yusef added that the PA leadership also discussed holding presidential and parliamentary elections "in the light of Hamas's refusal to complete Palestinian reconciliation."

In other words, instead of merely violating Oslo left and right, let's pretend we were never obligated to abide by it, which is close enough to the truth anyway. Go ahead. Cancel it. The IDF will be waiting.
Thanks Mother Jones, you just published a video in which Mitt predicted the future by a day.
Oh gee! What took them so long? /s
Exactly what I was thinking when I saw the headline/article. It’s the next exploding cigar for the left.
“Thanks Mother Jones, you just published a video in which Mitt predicted the future by a day.”
Hehehehehe, you got that right. The msm is painting themselves into a box. Funny what the truth does.
just tired of these people. I could care less what happens to them.
If the Oslo accords are cancelled, does that mean that the PLO must go back to Tunisia?
You mean, like, keeping Abbas’ office out of the cross-hairs, especially when he’s inside it?
Sure. Send them there in the raised wreck of the Struma. Repairs optional.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
I doubt this would mean an end to US aid, at least under this administration.
G-D doth work in mysterious ways.
