Abbas och palestinierna hotar

Abbas hotar med att dra tillbaka de palestinska myndigheternas erkännande av Israel om USA flyttar sin ambassad till Jerusalem.

Det intressanta med detta hot är att de palestinska myndigheterna aldrig erkänt Israel och dess rätt att existera.

For 20 years, Palestinian Media Watch has been exposing that, despite peace negotiations, agreements, and declarations, the Palestinians have never recognized Israel's right to exist - in any borders. In speeches, at events, and visually, the PA, Fatah, and their leaders have continued to present "Palestine" as including all of Israel and have expressed that the final goal is that all Israel's land will be in one state: "Palestine."

Här några citat från palestinska ledare:
Fatah Central Committee member: 
As North Vietnam took South Vietnam, a Palestinian state in West Bank will surely expand and take all of Israel
[Official PA TV, State of Politics, Dec. 26, 2016]

PA's Mufti, Muhammad Hussein:
"Jerusalem and all of Palestine is Islamic land."
[Official PA TV, Dec. 10, 2016]

Abbas' advisor on Islamic Affairs, Mahmoud Al-Habbash:  
"The entire land of Palestine is [Islamic] Waqf ... It is prohibited to sell, bestow ownership or facilitate the occupation of even a millimeter of it." 
[Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Oct. 22, 2014]

Another Fatah Central Committee member, Abbas Zaki, said the same thing to Al-Jazeera already years ago. The goal of PA policy including that of Abbas, he said, is to eliminate all of Israel in stages and it will be achieved by first bringing Israel to the 1967 lines, because then "Israel will come to an end." He then added:  "If I say that I want to remove it from existence, this will be great, great, [but] it is hard. This is not a [stated] policy. You can't say it to the world. You can say it to yourself."  [Al-Jazeera TV, Sept. 23, 2011]

In recent years, the PA and Fatah leaders have added an Islamic prohibition against recognition of Israel to their political refusal to recognize Israel, by which the PA is echoing Hamas ideology. PA and Fatah religious leaders are now teaching that it violates Islamic law to recognize Israel because all of Israel is said to be on "Islamic land" - "Waqf." Allah demands Palestinians to liberate it and "not give up a single grain" of it.

Palestinska ledare hotar med våld om USA flyttar sin ambassad

 Official PA news agency threatens:
Trump responsible for blood in Jerusalem
if he moves embassy

Några av de exempel som PMW pesenterar:
Fatah: Moving US embassy to Jerusalem will “open the gates of hell”
PA Mufti: “[Embassy transfer] is not only an attack on the Palestinians, but rather on [all] the Arabs and Muslims.”
PLO member: Embassy move constitutes “a declaration of war against our people and our Arab and Islamic nation”
PA Prime Minister Hamdallah: Embassy move will lead to “explosion of the security situation in the entire region”
Fatah official: “Transferring the American embassy to Jerusalem will absolve us of all the agreements and turn Palestine into a war zone"

“[PA] Minister of Religious Affairs Yusuf Ida’is yesterday, during his meeting with Egyptian Ambassador Sami Murad, demanded that the sources of religious authority in Egypt, and particularly Al-Azhar and Dar Al-Ifta (Muslim religious institutions), speak about the danger of transferring the American embassy to Jerusalem... He emphasized that the decision to transfer the embassy means the destruction of the region and strife, and that this is liable to push the region towards a religious war.” 
[Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 16, 2017]

"Secretary-General of the [PA] Islamic-Christian Council [for Jerusalem and the Holy Places, Fatah Revolutionary Council member,] and professor of international law Hanna Issa said... that this step will have disastrous consequences for the peace process, the two-state option, and the security and stability of the region, and will lead it into a religious war.”
[Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 12, 2017]

Also emphasizing the religious component, the PA Mufti, Sheikh Muhammad Hussein, stated that the potential embassy transfer is “an attack on Muslims worldwide”:

“The promise of the president-elect [Trump] to transfer the embassy is not only an attack on the Palestinians, but rather on [all] the Arabs and Muslims. The Muslims and Arabs will not remain silent when they see the aggression realized at the moment of the transfer of the embassy to occupied Jerusalem.’” 
[Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 14, 2017]

Palestinian Liberation Front (i.e., a PLO faction) political bureau member Abu Saleh Hashem said:

“Trump’s transferring of the embassy will be a hostile position and a declaration of war against our people and our Arab and Islamic nation, which by necessity will cause damage to the American interests in the region.”
[Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 11, 2017

Secretary-General of the PLO Executive Committee and Fatah Central Committee member Saeb Erekat likewise implied Palestinians would use violence. Describing how 
Palestinians would “fight” against the embassy move, Erekat used the words “all legal, political, and popular means.” The terms “all means,” “popular” resistance and/or uprising,” are often used by PA and Fatah leaders in reference to the use of violence against Israeli civilians such as stabbings, rock-‎throwing, and even shootings.

“[Erekat] expressed the firm opposition of our people and its leadership, and warned of the dangers in these hostile plans, which our people will fight against with all legal, political, and popular means. He added: 'These attempts are liable to inflame the violence and create an atmosphere that will lead to more tension, not only in Palestine, but also on the Arab, Islamic, and international levels.”
