By Dalit Halevi

Both despots self proclaimed ‘Presidents for Life’ of Fatah, PLO and Palestinian Authority
In his speech, Abbas presented the following red lines:
“There will be no solution except for one based on international resolutions, headed by the UN General Assembly Resolution 19/67, approved on November 29, 2012, UN Security Council Resolution 2334 of 2016, resolutions of the National Councils and the Arab Peace Initiative, all of which confirm the establishment of a Palestinian state within the 1967 borders whose capital is east Al-Quds.”
“The implementation of the Arab Peace Initiative depends on Israel ending the occupation of Palestinian and Arab lands, a just and agreed solution to the Palestinian refugee problem in accordance with Resolution 194, and first and foremost the achievement of freedom and independence by the Palestinian people.”
“The plot against Jerusalem will not succeed and we will never allow anyone to violate our national rights and principles.”
