Palestinians Call Israel-UAE Deal 'Treason,' Want Retraction


A spokesman for the Palestinian president is condemning the deal to establish full diplomatic ties between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.

Nabil Abu Rdeneh said on Thursday the agreement amounts to "treason." He says the Palestinians demand that it be retracted.

The remarks come after President Mahmoud Abbas convened a meeting of his top leadership in response to news of the deal, which would see Israel suspend its plans to annex parts of the West Bank.

Yeah and war has gotten you really far in achieving your aspirations. You were offered 50% of the land and you refused. I won't even go into the fact that many Palestinians sold their land to the jews at the time.

To the Israeli apologist did Nelson Mandela make peace with Apartheid? Do you know why he was in Jail? The Palestinians need someone like Mandela who ONLY agreed to make peace after the majority natives were given power after 200 years of white rule.
