UAE: Palestinian State At Pre-1967 Lines A Must Despite Peace Deal With Israel


JPost: The United Arab Emirates will insist on a two-state resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict based on the pre-1967 lines in spite of the peace deal it signed with Israel earlier this month, UAE Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed told the UN General Assembly.

“The call for the establishment of an independent Palestinian state on the borders of 1967 with east Jerusalem as its capital in line with the relevant international resolutions and the Arab and international consensus will remain a firm demand,” he said on Tuesday.

“My country has made persistent efforts using all available diplomatic channels to affirm our total rejection of the annexation of Palestinian territory, and we have warned of its impact on all parties and on the security of the region,” he said.

“With the signing of a historic peace accord with Israel, supported by American efforts, my country was able to freeze the annexation decision and opened broad prospects to achieve a comprehensive peace in the region,” he added. Read More …

Opinion: You have to sign the deal to find out what’s in it, Part 2.

It all began on September 16, 2020, the signing of the Abraham Accord, the outcome of the deal of the century, in Washington D.C.

UAE Minister: Our Treaty With Israel References a Palestinian State

While Israel claims there is no two state mandate in the current treaty, JPost reports this:
“The “Treaty of Peace, Diplomatic Relations and Full Normalization Between the United Arab Emirates and The State of Israel” recalls the ceremony in the White House in January, in which US President Donald Trump presented his peace plan and commits the sides to the treaty to “continuing their efforts to achieve a just, comprehensive, realistic and enduring solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.”

While that was left uncertain, today’s headline, bringing back a demand for the 1967 borders as part of the peace deal, is no better than Barack Obama’s continual demand for the same borders.

And that, dear readers, is a major league game changer. I have posed the question several times, can all the good President Trump has done in Israel be undone?

I will let the prophet Joel 3:2 answer:

I will also gather all nations,
And bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat;
And I will enter into judgment with them there
On account of My people, My heritage Israel,
Whom they have scattered among the nations;
They have also divided up My land.
