Abbas on Facebook: Israel Is Our Occupied Land- Eli Bardenstein
Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas denied the existence of Israel and attacked the two-state solution in a posting on his formal Facebook page on Oct. 13. Discussing his intention to request recognition of Palestine as a non-member state in the UN General Assembly, he wrote: "The recognition (by the UN) won't liberate the land the day after, but it will prove our right according to which our land is occupied and not disputed." Abbas explicitly emphasized that he is not just referring to the West Bank, but rather "the point applies to all the territories that Israel occupied before June 1967." (Maariv-Hebrew, 17Oct12)
Via Israellycool: The Obama Administration Should Really Learn Arabic
It’s his comments on his dismal failureat this year’s UNGA.
One sentence stands above the rest:
الاعتراف يا أعزائي لن يحرر الأرض في اليوم التالي، ولكنه سيثبت حقنا بأن أرضنا محتلة، وليس أرضا متنازعا عليها، وهو ما ينطبق على جميع الأراضي التي احتلتها إسرائيل قبل حزيران عام 1967.
Which roughly translates to:
Recognition will not happen tomorrow, but eventually it will prove our right to our land that is occupied, and not just disputed territory, but it applies to all territories occupied by Israel before June 1967.
I’ll dumb it down even more for the idiot in the White House:
I want to destroy Israel.
The rest of his J’accuse is the usual demonization of Israel, praising of terrorists, and claiming Jerusalem as the Palestinian holy eternal capital (He really should be more original).
And now you know.
So next time anyone in the Obama administration repeats the old and busted “Abbas’ is a peace partner” lie, point and laugh. Insults about their lack of intelligence or naivety, and a link to this page, will help.
