Arab League Endorses Abbas Plan for Palestine State Through UN
-DR. ABDUL RUFF
For decades the Palestinians are under Israeli brute occupation and genocides. The notorious UNSC , promoting imperialism and shielding NATO crimes in Islamic world sports a blind eye to Israeli crimes as well. The Palestinian leadership began peace talks with Israel nearly two decades ago with the aim of founding a state in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip to exist alongside Israel. For want of sincere involvement by Obama regime in Mideast peace, the US-led “peace talks” between an arrogant Israel and the defenseless Palestinians have been stalled for months, broken down last September in a dispute over continued Jewish settlement building in the occupied West Bank.
In view of the fanatic attitude mixed with fascist attacks by the Zionist leadership, Palestinian leaders have decided to obtain the UN approval for the establishment of Palestine in September. The Arab League at a meeting on 28th May in Doha attended by Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas has decided to seek full UN membership for a Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital. Arabs support the PLO appeal to the UN asking that Palestine, within the 1967 borders, becomes a full-fledged state of the international organization.
Israel has proliferated the Palestinian territories with illegal colonies and the number of illegal Jewish settlers has been on the rise. The Doha meeting had been convened in the wake of major Middle East policy speeches in Washington by Obama and Israeli Netanyahu. Abbas has reiterated his determination to seek UN recognition in September unless Israel began negotiations on a substantial basis. Abbas had told the meeting that PLO option is still negotiation, but it seems that because of conditions imposed by Israeli Netanyahu, they have no choice but to use the UN to get recognition of our state. "We are serious in our decision to use the UN, it is not manoeuvring”. Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh said that Israel will not gain security by clinging to territory beyond the 1967 West Bank frontier. "It is peace that will bring Israel security, not increasing the widdth of Israel or finding a military solution to defending its illusionary borders."
The Palestinians currently have the status of U.N. observers without voting rights. UN General Assembly president Joseph Deiss said that a Palestinian state would need the support of all five veto-wielding permanent members of the Security Council to be recognised. The Palestinian Authority (PA) headed by Abbas is dependent on financial support from international donors including the USA and the EU. It also relies on customs duties collected on its behalf by Israel, which triggered a financial crisis for the PA earlier this month when the Israeli government temporarily withheld the funds following a reconciliation deal between the rival Fatah and Hamas groups.
The 1967 borders refer to Israel's frontiers as they stood on the eve of the 1967 Middle East war in which, after occupying Palestine lands forcefully, it also captured the Gaza Strip from Egypt and the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, from Jordan. In a keynote policy speech on 19 May, US President Barack Obama issued a clear call for Israel and the Palestinians to use the borders existing before the 1967 Six Day War, with land swaps, as the basis for talks. Netanyahu rejected President Obama's proposal outright, saying the Jewish state would be "indefensible" if it returned to the 1967 borders, which would exclude dozens of Jewish settlements. Abbas described the idea as "a foundation with which we can deal positively". Though he made it clear that an appeal to the UN for full membership for Palestine would be a mistake, Obama also expressed his exclamation what would Israel do when UN grants Palestine membership and status. The veto members of the UNSC could black any resolution and USA or UK could do so on Palestine case as freely as they kill Muslims in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan and Libya and elsewhere.
Backing of Arab League for Palestine state though the UN is a positive development in Mideast. The notorious Mossad-CIA agents trying to twist the Obama arm is attempting to get Obama vote against Palestine; Western fascist regimes that had imposed the Zionist regime in Mideast to kill Palestinians in the first place might not want make Israel look politically isolated. Abbas stressed that the Palestinians do not want to isolate Israel or to delegitimize it. On the contrary, we want to co-exist with it," he added.
After making all negotiations fall futile, Israel now fears the maneuvering will leave them looking vulnerable on the diplomatic front. Israel says that peace talks and an agreement are the only way for the Palestinians to achieve their goal of nationhood but it drags on the peace talks by bogus claims and intermittent aggressions in Palestine, killing innocent people. Arab League Secretary General Amr Moussa, a possible candidate for the Egyptian presidency said that Netanyahu had presented nothing but a series of "no's" in his speech to the US Congress. The Palestinians know that Netanyahu's vague ideas for peace had put more obstacles in the path of an already moribund peace process. Israel is deadly anti-peace but USA is also deadly imperialist, supporting Zionist suppressive techniques and crimes against humanity.
