On his official Facebook page last Saturday, Palestinian President Abu Mazen (Mahmoud Abbas) negated the concept of 2 states divided on the basis of the Green Line, and said that the Palestinians also have claims to the “lands the Israelis occupied before 1967″.
In his post Abbas says that he doesn’t just claim the West Bank, but wants to take all of the Land of Israel. By the UN to recognizing Palestinian rights to the West Bank, “it also proves that Palestinians have rights to all the land that is occupied.”
In short, Abu Mazen is saying he doesn’t support a two-state solution and an end to the conflict, just an end to Israel.
PM Netanyahu said in July that, “The Palestinians haven’t made peace all these years, ever since Israel began talks with them, because they are not just talking about the West bank, but they also want Haifa and Tel Aviv, and have not given up on that dream.”
Abu Mazen just confirmed that.
