Regards From ‘Down Under’ – And What The PA Really Wants

Keeping-Jerusalem

What the PA Really Wants

In conclusion, we must mention the Arab protests on May 15, the anniversary of Israel’s independence and what the Arabs call Catastrophe Day. The name says it all: The very establishment of the tiny Jewish state in the original Partition Plan borders – without the Old City, without all of the Galilee, without all of Be’er Sheva, and of course without Judea, Samaria, Gaza and the Golan – was a “catastrophe” for the Arabs, who wish to see a new Palestinian Arab state not only in Judea and Samaria, but throughout Eretz Yisrael.

Arab marauders commemorated the day with rock throwing at Damascus Gate in Jerusalem, and with rioting in Hebron and Kalandia as well. PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas took the opportunity to say, “We will struggle [read: fight] for our right to establish a state in all the areas captured in 1967.”

But he is fooling no one in restricting his stated ambitions to Judea and Samaria; the maps presented by the PA at a recent United Nations conference showed “Palestine” from the Mediterranean to the Jordan, and from Lebanon to Eilat, with no trace of Israel. In their words, the PA Arabs recognize Israel – but in deeds and intentions, it’s quite the opposite.
