Yisrael Beiteinu head Avigdor Lieberman, until recently the Foreign Minister, reacted with joy Friday as Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas threatened to quit if negotiations do not resume. Abbas has refused to negotiate in absence of several Israeli concessions, including a complete freeze on construction east of the 1949 armistice line.
According to Lieberman, Israel "can't wait" for Abbas to follow through on his threat.
"We congratulate Abu Mazen [Abbas] for reaching the correct conclusion, that only his leave from the PA leadership will allow the diplomatic process to resume," Lieberman said.
"We anxiously await the official announcement from the Muqata regarding his retirement," he added. "There are many alternatives among the Palestinians with whom we could hold a diplomatic dialog."
"It's Abbas' remaining [as leader] that will ultimately bring Hamas and other radicals to power in Judea and Samaria," he warned.

“”It's Abbas’ remaining [as leader] that will ultimately bring Hamas and other radicals to power in Judea and Samaria,” he warned.”
How can Abbas declare that he has a state, when he cannot control what happens in Gaza. If he resigns, Israel should consider all agreements null and void, recognize Gaza as the “Palestinian State”, declare war on it if even one bomb, missile, or suicide bomber comes from there, and annex the entire west bank, since it was occupied land between 1948 and 1967 (occupied by Jordan).
