PA Threatens to Break ‘Peace Talk’ Rules and Go to United Nations

The Palestinian Authority has a regular habit of signing agreements, such as the Oslo Accords, and then breaking the rules to start all over again That is the same recipe being cooked up in the resumed “peace talks.”

It didn’t take very long for the Palestinian Authority to threaten to break the ground rules of the resumed talks, which calls for a nine-month period in which  chairman Mahmoud Abbas will not go back to his tactic of circumventing discussions with Israel by appealing to the United Nations to condemn Israel.

Palestinian Authority spokeswoman Hanan Ashrawi said Wednesday that Israel is “deliberately destroying the chances of success for these talks” by accelerating settlement activities, the Beirut Daily Star reported.

The PA has protested Israeli announcements since the resumption of talks to build more homes for Jews in Judea and Samaria and in Jerusalem areas claimed by the PA.

“These are not just dots on a map,” said Ashrawi. “These are willful and destructive measures to prevent the creation of a Palestinian state.”

The other side of the coin is that freezing construction for Jews would be a measure to contribute to Arab efforts to prevent the existence of a Jewish state, which  chairman Mahmoud Abbas refuses to define as Israel.

Ashrawri is one of the most intellectual voices in the Palestinian Authority and also sits on the executive committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization, which defines future PA borders as all of the Land of Israel.

So much for the two-state solution.

Concerning Israel’s building projects in, she stated, “If Israel carries out these plans… we will be forced to recourse to international judicial processes through international institutions.”  She made her remarks to reporters in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Gilo, a “settlement” by the definition of the Palestinian Authority and the West.

“We are not prepared to make the same mistakes and to have talks for their own sake as Israel continues [to build].”

    They got terrorists back, so now who cares. But doesn’t it get Israel off the hook and hopefully teach it better than to be suckered again?

  2. Josh Brewster says:

    When Israel wakes up and leaves the UN, which it should, it will be a good day.

    That’s right, run to the UN – comprised of pro-Arab sphincterheads – a useless Punch and Judy show – run to “Mamma” – with feces in your diaper. Ha.

    Israel' friends slam Israel on construction & shout ‘Israeli building threatens peace talks’, but none of Israel' friends say a word about the Jihadist PLO-PA coordinated & organised massive lands grab & illegal constructions over Area C under Israel Jurisdiction & control.

    There is nothing new – After all this time of not talking to each other, this type of behaviour displays the reality that there is little if any hope of these talks going anywhere! A Tunisian barber was cutting my hair last week and this Arab gentleman said to me that he thought that these talks would go nowhere.

  9. Benjamin Fox says:

    All I call tell this women is from the frying pan into the fire, where is her common sense?

  10. Alan Kardon says:

    Go, that will give Israel good reason not to release any more terrorists. This whole "Peace Talk" is a sham. How can we be so stupid as to waste our time again.

  11. Hey Livni have you something to say?

  12. Yesh Prabhu says:

    This article contains a few inaccurate statements. The author says that the Palestinian Authority is in violation of the Oslo Accords. Actually the Oslo Accords required Israel to stop building settlements in the occupied territories within five years, and also to release the Palestinian prisoners. Israel did not comply with either of the requirements. Even the Secretary of State John Kerry has said that Israel is in violation of the Oslo Accords, and so have France, Germany, the UK and the EU.

  13. Danthe Mann says:

    Yesh Prabhu 
     Your statement is incorrect.

    Not
    only are Settlements left as one of the many Permanent Status issue to
    be negotiated – no mention of stopping construction is mentioned at all
    in the Oslo Accords.
    The text is right here:
    http://foeme.org/www/?module=regional_data&record_id=4
    Why make things up like that?
    In fact, in the Oslo Accords, the Palestinians also acknowledged the Israeli rights to maintain and protect the Settlements.

    ARTICLE XII – Arrangements for Security and Public Order
    1.  
     In order to guarantee public order and internal security for the
    Palestinians of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, the Council shall
    establish a strong police force as set out in Article XIV below. Israel
    shall continue to carry the responsibility for defense against external
    threats, including the responsibility for protecting the Egyptian and
    Jordanian borders, and for defense against external threats from the sea
    and from the air, as well as the responsibility for overall security of
    Israelis and Settlements, for the purpose of safeguarding their
    internal security and public order, and will have all the powers to take
    the steps necessary to meet this responsibility.

    On
    the other hand, the Palestinian Authority violated the Oslo Accords
    almost immediately when they began encouraging, supplying and directly
    sending terrorists to attack Israelis.
