Palestine Withdraws from All Agreements with israel and US, Says Mahmoud Abbas

19 May, 2020 21:08 / Updated 5 hours ago

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas announced his country will be ceasing all arrangements with Israel and the US in light of Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s annexation plans.

"The Palestine Liberation Organization and the State of Palestine are absolved, as of today, of all the agreements and understandings with the American and Israeli governments and of all the obligations based on these understandings and agreements, including the security ones," the president said at a leadership meeting in Ramallah.

The announcement comes in response to plans by Netanyahu to annex Jewish settlements in the West Bank, that were outlined in the ‘Deal of the Century’ proposed by US President Donald Trump and announced in January.

Abbas made clear he sees Israel as an “occupying power” when it comes to the West Bank.

"The Israeli Occupation Authority must now carry all its obligations as an occupying power of Palestinian lands. It must bear all the consequences, and international humanitarian law and the Geneva Convention also impose on the Occupying Authority the responsibility of caring for residents under occupation,” Abbas said.

Agreements that the PA now considers null and void include the Oslo Accords (1993), Hebron Agreement (1997) and Wye River Agreement (1998), which established security parameters between the PA and Israel in the West Bank.

1. Well, I think it would be a good idea if the United States cancelled all aid it gives

"Palestine," either directly or indirectly (i.e., the United Nations). I have no idea why we're giving such aid in the first place.

5. Oh now, all that you're doing is virtue-signalling.

Given the esteem in which I hold you, sir, I'd always hoped you'd grow out of it, this virtue-signalling.

"Oh, look at me--I'm morally superior because I'm in favor of the 'underdog.'"

How about being in favor of the one in the right, no matter if the upperdog or the "underdog"?

3. Seeing as how the PLO never kept it's word on single one of those accords,

this is a huge yawner of an announcement.

7. So they have decided to end the truce and resume their war.

Once the PA launches rockets from a neighborhood or hospital or school, and once a PA kills an ISraeli soldier while not in a uniform as an armed combatant-Palestine loses most of its rights!
