Yuval Steinitz says Israel may have to mull dismantling PA after draft statehood resolution submitted to Security Council.
The submission overnight Wednesday of a Palestinian-sponsored UN draft resolution calling for a peace deal within a year, and demanding an Israeli withdrawal to the pre-1967 lines by the end of 2017, drew a spate of condemnations by Israeli ministers.
Yuval Steinitz, the Israeli minister of intelligence, international relations and strategic affairs, said Thursday morning that the Palestinian draft resolution was an “act of war.”
“The Palestinians made sure to remove any mention of Israel’s status as a Jewish state from the draft, which means this is not an act of peace, it’s an act of war,” he told Israel Radio.
Steinitz called for Israel to weigh a harsh response, including cutting off ties with the Palestinian Authority and even dismantling it.
“We need to consider every move including cutting off economic ties with the PA and stopping the transfer of taxes collected on its behalf,” he said.
“If the PA continues to incite against us, against our existence, against the Jewish nation, if it [continues to] take unilateral action, we need to respond not just in the international sphere but also in the Palestinian sphere and to consider, if there is no other choice, dismantling the [Palestinian] Authority,” he added.
Steinitz said that if the terms of the Palestinian bid are adopted by the international community, it will precipitate a Hamas and Islamic State takeover of the West Bank.

In 1993, Israel fell into a trap laid by the Kingdom of Norway. The Israeli government should never had let al-Fatah (PLO) move its headquarter from Tunis to Ramallah.
If al-Fatah had still been in Tunis, it would surely have been an active part of the ISIL network. The only reason why al-Fatah is not a part of the Islamic state, is the continued inflow of money from Washington D.C and the EU. No need to base its activities on money from Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
Israel must now learn from this historical and almost fatal mistakes. Islamic terrorists must be banished from the soil of Israel, and the al-Fatah base in Ramallah dismantled. The mountains of Israel must be a “terror free zone” where the Jewish people can settle and live in their promised land.
“Are you the king of the Jews?” asked Pilate. “You have said so,” Jesus replied.
This will be pleasing to Yeshua the Messiah. A Jewish people who rebuild he ruins in Zion, praises His name, and eagerly awaits His Second coming.
