Palestinian Statehood Rebuffed

Nadene Goldfoot

The Palestinians are probably very angry right now. They tried to get both the USA and the EU to recognize a Palestinian state based on the June 4, 1967 (from the 6 Day War) lines.

The United States denies any recognition to any unilaterally declared Palestinian

The EU also refused and told them that they needed to negotiate a solution.

That may be some time before that happens. The Palestinian have vowed not to talk to Israel in any way until Israel stops building in Judea and Samaria. What they want stopped is settlement there, and building indicates this to them. They are trying to take over East Jerusalem completely minus Jews as well as all of Judea, Samaria (West Bank), and Gaza, which they have. To them it doesn't matter that though all the Arabs ganged up and attacked Israel in 1967 and to their shock Israel won, that the result is their loss of land. They are more than poor losers. They want the rules of war to be according to the way they write them.

According to the Debka file, "Abbas knows as well as Israel and Washington that the lines which preceded the 1967 war were never approved borders. What he is really after is the 1949 armistice lines, which the US opposes."
