Abbas Threatens to Break Off With Israel If U.N. Measure Fails

(JNS.org)  PA President Mahmoud Abbas threatened to break off ties with Israel if the Palestinian-drafted United Nations Security Council resolution demanding Israeli withdrawal from the West Bank by 2017 fails. Speaking to reporters in Algeria, Abbas said that the Palestinians are “determined to restore their rights, including the right of return for refugees and the release of all Palestinians from Israeli prison. If we fail, we will halt all dealings with the Israeli government and ask it to assume its responsibilities as an occupation state.” Both Hamas and Israel, as well as the US and the EU, are against this petition as well.
