Abbas: Palestinian State Will Be ‘Judenrein’

"In a final resolution, we would not see the presence of a single Israeli - civilian or soldier - on our lands."

On his visit to Cairo Monday, to meet with Egypt’s interim president, Adli Mansour (With Hamas Out, It’s Abbas’s Turn as Egypt’s Favorite Palestinian), PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas stated emphatically that no Israeli settlers or border forces would be allowed to remain in a future Palestinian state, Reuters reports.

“In a final resolution, we would not see the presence of a single Israeli – civilian or soldier – on our lands,” Abbas told the Egyptian press.

Funny he should use the term “final resolution,” which sounds so disturbingly familiar. It brought to mind two other familiar terms from the same era, Judenfrei (“free of Jews”) and Judenrein (“clean of Jews”), the Nazi terms designating an area “cleansed” of Jewish presence. Judenfrei referred to “freeing” an area of all its Jewish dwellers by deportation, while Judenrein had the stronger connotation that any trace of Jewish blood had been removed as an impurity.

With his demand for a Jew-free country, the revered Palestinian statesman joins the majority of Arab nations, including Saudi Arabia, where Jews—especially the Israeli kind—are not permitted to set foot.

And so, as far as Abbas is concerned, there is no way the Jewish settlements of Judea and Samaria that happen to remain on the wrong side of the new border could apply for Palestinian citizenship. For him, the only option is the Gaza Gush Katif option: all the Jews must leave and everything they didn’t take with them is burned down to the ground.

Regarding the status of East Jerusalem, which for a majority of Israelis is a deal breaker—Abbas had nothing new to say, possibly because it’s too early in the negotiations to let go of such an asset, but, more likely, because it’s his deal breaker as well, and he’s hoping Tzipi Livni would blink first.

She would, too.

“We’ve already made all the necessary concessions,” Abbas told the Egyptian reporters. “East Jerusalem is the capital of the state of Palestine … if there were and must be some kind of small exchange (of land) equal in size and value, we are ready to discuss this – no more, no less.”

Palestinian sources have told Reuters that in talks in the coming days, the Americans hope to satisfy Palestinian objections by issuing a statement declaring the 1967 lines the basis for negotiations, and the United States will attempt to compel the Israelis to endorse their note.

Tzipi will do that one, too.

    ABBAS you can go to HELL.

  2. Negative reportage will only hamper the peace process. Until we get there many extreme statements will be made by both parties. Why give the impression that you have no hope? such articles are counter productive to the peace process.

  3. But if Jews say this we’re apartheid. Let’s drop the bull and send these animals into the Mediterranean.

  4. Joseph Colen says:

    Israel and Europe and America should make final solutions to get rid of muslims from their nations. Make the whole free world islamrein.

  5. Cody Flecker says:

    All of Israel especially its PrimeIMinister Bibi Netanyahu should go to hell for even allowing the discussion to start on the 67 borders. On top of that a Judenfrei Judea and Samaria, and for this we fought WW2. A real shame that the Jews all over the world will not divorce Israel>

    Nothing changes in Arab mentality… This is a sequel to the 1940s expulsion of Jews from Arab countries. Only this time one Jew out from (stolen) Jewish palestine, the pro-rata will be 10 arabs out of Jewish land. Abbas is definitely showing his hate for the Jews in general and Israel in particular. He is looking for trouble, he is going to have it definitely.

    Arab statements are reality. Wake up lady. Please read me

  8. John Lewis says:

    Let's take it a step at a time and not jump to conclusions. It is going to be very difficult to negotiate a peace agreement, and maybe this will not be achievable, but at least let's try, as the Israeli government is trying to do, and if it is achievable, it would be wonderful for Israel.

  9. Joyce K. Singer says:

    Was there ever any doubt?

  10. Dear dear Abbas you are smoking to much Turkish hashish in you bong if you think there is ever going to be an Palastinian state.

  11. Islamrein sounds wonderful.

  12. John Mackey says:

    The Whole World Wants A Palestinian State, Your Wishful Thinking Notwithstanding!

  13. filthy scum murderer will drown in the sewer of hell.

  14. Matt McLaughlin says:

    6 million misplaced israelies is easier than 1.5 billion muslims.

  15. The Guardian says:

    End the Muslim Occupation of Palestine!!!

  16. Matt McLaughlin says:

    John Mackey All it takes is a fraction of Muslims that walk the face of the earth to rush Israel. You can't kill everyone, let alone an inferior birth rate that will soon have Israel non-democratic if it to be a Jewish-state for long. The Balfour/european sponcorship of a Jewish homeland in Palesine wasn't democratic. Not even the English voted for it , and it wasn't debated in Brit Parliament. The world was crowned by it via the %1.

  17. Stuart Wragg says:

    Abbas is clearly a racist and is intent on establishing a state of apartheid. So much for allegations against Israel. You cannot negotiate with people whose intentions are evil.

  18. Veronica Varallo says:

    All the Palestinians need to go back to Jordan when they came from. They were Bedouins who squatted on Israel's Land and now they think they own it. They are Islamic Arabs they need to go back where they came from and build their own independent state. They have no currency, most of them have no jobs, Israel funds their children's education, they are given free medical care, Israel pays their electric bill for how many years now…. and they think they are independent enough to have their own State. Are these people insane or what? Ha'Shem holds the DEED to Israeli Land and no man or nation is going to rip that deed out of the Hands of the Most High G-d. HE told HIS people…. do not sell MY Land, do not divide up Jerusalem. Those who divide up HIS Land will suffer HIS WRATH! Any man or nation that comes against Israel, comes agains the G-d of Israel and no man or nation stands against HIM… HE wins…. they loose…. that simple! L'Shalom

  19. Judea and Samaria are an integral part of ISRAEL…the arabs and Palestinian who are occupying it are vulgar squatters. they have always been free to leave any time they want…and I encourage them to do so now…now..

    The Palestinians will welcome Israelis In Palestine right after the settler/terrorists welcome a Palestinian family to one of their "settlements."

    Zig Heil

  22. Tim Upham says:

    Excuse me President Abbas, but is that a law written in the Palestinian Constitution? NO. It is just something you are saying at the meeting in Washington, D.C. YES. May if you lose your 30% of your GDP from foreign donors, you might be changing your mind.

  23. Alan Kardon says:

    Would you welcome someone to your house if they do not recognize your right to exists?

  24. Jag vet hur Gud skulle rösta…

  25. Alan Kardon says:

    When are you moving there, hopefully soon?

  26. Alan Kardon says:

    Not everyone, only anti-semites and Arab countries so they do not have to deal with the Palestenians.

  27. Alan Kardon says:

    Very noble John, but the first step should be that the PA acknowledge that Israel has a right to exist. If not they are just another group of terrorists.

  28. Dov Grauman says:

    Another arab stat

  29. Yechiel Baum says:

    Does that mean he no longer needs the Satmar, Nuteri Karta, Charedim as allies and will not allow them in either? So why should we?

    Having learned from Arab lands and Spain and other countries, Jews should use the same tactics and not allow Arabs into the Jewish land.

  30. Ron Kall says:

    Stupid comment, harrylax!!

  31. Ron Kall says:

    John Mackey They already got it, Jordan. Really, what the so called resat of the world wants is Israel destroyed, has nothing to do with another made up arab country!

  32. Ron Kall says:

    Matt McLaughlin Another stupid comment!! How are 1.5 billion muslims being threatened with displacement, or is that the figure you came up with of the number living in Judea and Samaria. Stop embarrassing yourself!!

  33. Ron Kall says:

    sylsinc2000 Reality in fantasy land!

  38. LOVE YOU VERONICA!!! Great history in a nutshell! :o)

  39. Oh John Lewis, you can't be serious, please read this recent accomplishment in trying to correct a terrible wrong that Netanyahu has done please!:


  40. Hey Joseph you're right on target!!! Look how arabs in the Knesset for goodness sake are plotting against Israel all the time!!!

  41. This person Matt McLaughlin is an antisemite of the worst kind. He contributes NOTHING LOGICAL to this article but goes through the trouble of coming here to only hurt our cause. I'm addressing my comment to you and the rest of commenters here as I never waste my time (knowingly) with those wretched jerks!!!

  42. What "peace process" are you talking about??? Oh you mean how pals. get everything good and Israelis get rockets, bombs, suicide murderers, etc.??? Yes wake up my darling, read this so you stop being ridiculous:


  43. Anonymous says:

    John Mackey Not true. The Pali leadership really doesn't want one.

  44. Cody Flecker please don't say that "Jews all over the world should divorce Israe"!!! Please quit punishing Israel just because their PM is taking a mistaken decision. Do you make consistently all right decisions always??? By wanting all Jews to be against Israel YOU ARE HURTING ISRAEL! If you don't have a heart, use your brains…if you have one!!! :o(

  45. i agree as well, but a thousand per cent? how do you reach that level of agreement? unfortunately, i only agree 100%.

  46. aha. judith, interesting comment. i'm leaning toward it myself

  47. Joseph, the thing is we, israel, europe and america would never develop a final solution for anyone. In general, these three entities have humanitarian hearts (although, not always practiced in reality) that would sour at such a suggestion despite the fact that abbas and his cohorts deserve it.
