Skip to comments.Tibi: Abbas Will Never Concede
Posted on 01/04/2014 10:06:53 PM PST by Eleutheria5
MK Ahmed Tibi (Raam-Taal), who was an adviser to former Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Yasser Arafat and keeps in close contact with his successor Mahmoud Abbas, is accusing Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu of doing everything he can to prevent a peace agreement with the PA.
Netanyahu is not saying anything new. He is doing everything, absolutely everything, so that an agreement wont happen. So why should anyone wonder why the Palestinian leadership is skeptical? It is closer to appealing to the UN institutions than to signing an agreement,....
Tibi, who boasted that he speaks to Abbas a lot, also told the website that the PA chief will never, ever concede [eastern] Jerusalem, the sovereignty of the Palestinian state nor the issue of the [Jordan] Valley and an Israeli presence there.
He added, [Eastern] Jerusalem will be the capital of the Palestinian state. There is no other possibility. Any other proposal of a neighborhood here, Abu Dis there, is just a sorry joke.
Tibi also reiterated Abbass position that not a single Israeli soldier will remain in the future Palestinian state after an agreement is signed.
Abu Mazen presented his stance regarding the American security team, that he is willing to accept another international force, but not an Israeli one, and for a short, delimited time period, he said. Kerrys proposal also talked about 10 years in which implementation will be monitored. Who will monitor the implementation? Kerry? The Americans? Israel! This he rejected angrily and out of hand because it is an unfair proposal.
In addition, said Tibi, Abbas wont recognize a Jewish state because the PLO already recognized the State of Israels right to exist. Thats it, enough. A Jewish state is a political position. I as a Knesset member oppose it.

Kinda like, Israel could oppose a muslim state but support a Palestine state
The PLO recognizes Israel’s right to exist, but not the PA. Jerusalem will be the capitol of Palestine. Not East Jerusalem that the editor puts in in parenthesis. Jerusalem. But Bibi is doing everything he can to prevent an agreement? Such as having an ounce of self respect?
Has t Bibi sent hero-JFK2 home yet ?!!!!???? How long is Bibi going to put up with this dangerous “ dismember Israel for the terrorists “ farce just to be diplomatic with Kerry?
Just so long as it’s a communist Palestine state that won’t recognize a Jewish state, but will give anyone selling land to Joooos! or publicly defaming Islam the death sentence. Sure. Why not live with that?/sarc
Just until Abbas officially rejects the agreement and thereby makes an ass of JFK2. That way Bibi will still get blamed, but with less justification.
Is Abba still touring?
Dunno. Has he stopped in Switzerland yet to see his bank account?
I hear you.
Why is this dog still wasting good oxygen?
Because whoever would replace him would probably be worse, I suppose.
Israel is totally insane. Having this Arab terrorist ally in their PARLIAMENT is like the U.S. Congress having a KGB operative as a Congressman at the height of the Cold War. EXPEL HIM! WTF?
"[Eastern] Jerusalem will be the capital of the Palestinian state. There is no other possibility. Any other proposal of 'a neighborhood here, Abu Dis there,' is just a sorry joke."Such an implementation would put the imprimatur on the ethnic cleansing carried out by Arabs and other muzzies, most recently in 1948. Thanks Eleutheria5.
Abbas knows he would be quickly assassinated if he were to sign any treaty with Israel.
