President Abbas warned Israel today of a new war if they did not accept the peace plan that was discussed in Saudi Arabia this week.
Arutz Sheva reports:
(IsraelNN.com) Israel would be well advised to team up with the Palestinian Authority under the 2002 Arab peace plan, says PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas – and well advised to raise its alert status if it does not.
Abbas accused Israel of “seeking to avoid the realization of peace” by insisting on changes to the plan authored five years ago by Saudi Arabian King Abdullah.
The plan calls for Israel to withdraw from all the lands recovered during the 1967 Six Day War, including Judea, Samaria, the Golan Heights and half of Jerusalem.
It also calls for Israel to allow millions of Arab descendants of those who fled the country during the 1948 War of Independence to be allowed to immigrate to Israel. The Jewish State has rejected this clause absolutely.
He warned, however, that if Israel did not accept the Arab peace plan, “The entire region will be under renewed threats of war [and] explosions, as well as regional and international confrontations, as a result of the absence of a solution or the impossibility of implementing one.”
Abbas also warned the US and the world to start dealing with the Palestinian government… or else.
