Mr. Abbas delivered his speech against a backdrop of growing frustration among many Palestinians over the paralysis in peace negotiations with Israel.” Maybe they’d be less frustrated if they stopped shooting rockets into Israel and ended the genocidal anti-Semitic rhetoric on “Palestinian” TV.
In any case, the Oslo Accords were always for the “Palestinians” just a stepping stone toward the total destruction of Israel. Abbas and the other “Palestinian” factions never respected them, and this threatened escalation of the jihad against Israel was inevitable.
Demonstrating a new level of tension with Israel, President Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority declared Wednesday that it was no longer bound by the Oslo Peace Accords and subsequent agreements that formed the basis for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
In his annual General Assembly speech, Mr. Abbas accused Israel of having violated the accords and subsequent agreements that outline security, economic and other arrangements. He asserted that there was no reason that the Palestinians should remain faithful to them as long as the Israelis were not.
