The Palestinian state must be free of Jewish settlers, Israeli Arabs are an inseparable part of the Palestinian people.
This is a statement by MK Ahmed Tibi (UAL-Ta’al). He was speaking at the Fatah’s sixth general assembly in Bethlehem on Tuesday,
«Whoever came last should be the first to leave», Israel Radio quoted Tibi as saying, adding that freezing settlement construction was not enough. There’s no peace with the settlements or with the settlers and the Palestinian state should be free of settlers, he reportedly said.
An Arab Declaration of war:
Israeli Minister Michael Eitan (Likud):
«The peace process between Israel and the Palestinians cannot move forward if it is based on hate, separation and an unwillingness to coexist», said Eitan.
«Whoever wants to throw out Jews because of a nationalistic opposition to them living next to Arabs brings upon himself identical statements by Jews about Arabs».
He went on to say that such remarks were an obstacle to peace and constituted «a dangerous radicalization that does nothing to help bridge the gaps, and certainly doesn’t contribute to peace in our region».
«Arabs will reunite Jerusalem»
Nonetheless, the PA president Abbas accused Israel of denying its commitments. According to Abbas, the Palestinians and Israel reached a US-brokered understanding which included east Jerusalem, the Jordan Valley and parts of the Dead Sea.
«But now the Israelis are trying to deny this and create facts on the ground in Jerusalem, claiming Jerusalem is united under their sovereignty»., said Abbas.
The PLO was founded in 1964 for the purpose of destroying the Jewish state of Israel. The reason behind the recent split between Hamas and Fatah is not bases on ideology. Its only based on different political tactics of reaching the same political goal.
And there is another difference, that is linked to secret bank accounts in Switzerland. The Fatah leadership is more corrupt and greedy than their brothers in Gaza. The Hamas leadership did not get the millions of USD that Abbas promised them. The greed of Abbas and his faithful men cost them their control over the Gaza strip.
When the blood money from the US and European Union is re-distributed into the right pockets, there will again be a fresh set up of Islamic soldiers in the same battle formations. The Bethlehem Fatah convention confirms that Hamas and Fatah agrees on the most important issues. The end of the Jewish state of Israel.
