Abbas Calls Jewish Towns in Judea and Samaria a ‘Cancer’

The United Nations says living in Judea and Samaria and most of Jerusalem are “illegal. ”Obama says they are “illegitimate. ”Now Palestinian Authority man calls them a “cancer.”

Building Jewish homes in Judea and Samaria and eastern Jerusalem is a cancer,” Palestinian Authority  chairman Mahmoud Abbas said on Tuesday, the day before  U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is scheduled to arrive with another load of diplomatic muscle.

His description upstages the United Nations,which calls 600,000 Jews in Judea, Samaria, and in eastern, southern and northern Jerusalem “illegal,” and Abbas outdoes President Barack Obama, who considers them “illegitimate.”

“We will not remain patient as the settlement cancer spreads, especially in (east) Jerusalem, and we will use our right as a U.N.  observer state by taking political, diplomatic and legal action to stop it,” Abbas said in a speech in Ramallah to mark the 49th anniversary of the founding of the Fatah party.

He also placed a wreath at the grave of Yasser Arafat, Abbas’ predecessor who perpetuated evil by turning terror into criteria for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Abbas pulled no punches in his comments and did his best to show Kerry that he could care less about the Secretary of State’s rules of the game not to threaten to suggest going to the United Nations in an end-run around current nine-month discussion with Israel.

Abbas all of a sudden pulled Gaza into the picture and conveniently omitted recent escalation of terrorist attacks from the Hamas-controlled area.

“We have entered negotiations amid Israeli escalation on all fronts — the Israeli army steps up its hostilities against the Gaza Strip and in the West Bank, leading to the killing of dozens of citizens in the last few months,” he said.

  1. Ben II says:

    Abbas is the cancer and an Islamic terrorist who should be swinging by his neck.

  2. Joe Newberry says:

    Israel needs to IGNORE the invented people…you can not deal with a terrorist group who has NO interest in peace only for destruction. I’ve spent time in the Shomron area of Israel and talked to many residents there some scary stories about how the Israeli gov’t treats these people much less about Abbas and his non sense!

  3. Israel é uma nação de heróis, e é também uma nação com muitos problemas e cada vez mais solitário no cenário internacional. Por isso o povo judeu deve ser forte, sempre preparado para as adversidades.
    Com relação às moradias na Cisjordânia, Já deveriam ter construído o triplo do que foi feito até agora. Os judeus na França, na Hungria e em outros lugares precisam voltar para Israel. A situação é urgente. FORÇA ISRAEL.

  4. Melvin Waslo says:

    why should Israel be afraid in Obama pressure, when the God of Heavens is on her side? Israel is always the apple of God's eyes! be of good courage, be strong and never be afraid of these Goliaths, you have always with you your David.

  5. Attention Melvin Waslo: A few years ago Rome surrounded a difficult Jewish population in Jerusalem- starved about 20% to death – killed, raped and enslaved another 20 % (or more) and the rest scattered across the top of Africa to wind up in Spain and you know how that worked out. Obama has more class-he will just let them commit suicide – slowly.
