Abbas mixes in Israel’s election by ordering massive Palestinian construction in banned West Bank areas

Mahmoud Abbas has directed his Palestinian Authority officials to embark on a massive construction project in all parts of the West Bank, effectively tearing up the A, B and C regions mandated by the 1993 Oslo peace framework accords. Under those accords, A is under full Palestinian security control, B is held jointly, and C is controlled by Israel. Abbas (Abu Mazen) has now ordered the PA administration and security officials to initiate unauthorized building projects in all three sectors without applying for permits from the Israeli Civil Administration.
According to DEBKAfile’s sources, this directive applies in the first stage to the 30,000 housing units that were denied Israeli building permits. As an added incentive for builders, the PA is laying out generous financing from funds donated by European sources.
Abu Mazen’s step shreds up a fundamental ingredient of the Oslo peace accords. He intends it to reach Israeli popular notice in time to stunningly embarrass Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and his Likud in their run for re-election on September 17. Already under pressure from the nationalist-religious parties in line for his post-election coalition, as well as Avigdor Lieberman’s bid to unseat him, the prime minister is about to find himself cornered by Abu Mazen into making a a strong response to the flagrant Palestinian violation of their accord. That will bring the centrist and left-wing opposition parties, led by Blue-White, in full cry against the Likud leader.

With powerful European sources at their back, the Palestinians have also just obtained partial support for their step from US President Donald Trump’s senior advisers, Jared Kushner and Jason Greenblatt, who are currently touring Arab capitals. They see Israel’s election campaign as their chance to gain traction in the Palestinian camp. Netanyahu’s initiative last week to approve 700 new Palestinian housing units in the Israeli-control C sector failed to divert Abu Mazen from his plan to create mayhem in Israel’s election race.

        Bob… Correction, Israel is a Nation & has a Right to Exist Regardless of How You Think Otherwise!

          everything has right to exist , and its applicable to all the creatures big or small, The only issue is if they can exist beside each other without killing each other or devouring thy neighbor.

        Palestinians have a right to their land. One way or another we will get our land. Israel, the writing is on the walls. We got Trump support now. You are finished.

          Israel has records and evidents of living in Israel 4000 years ago. Archeology support that. History support that. The Bible support that. What proofs does PA has to claim Israel belongs to them ???

    Too many areas, A, B, C, are confusing.
    Mostly now that there is failed Oslo.
    Best area for Abbas is Area J in Jordan.

    • Aug 5, 2019 @ 8:59 at 8:59

      Yes area JJJ yipee.

        We have accepted the take of Jerusalem as a capital, but we want a contiguous territory for the State of PA, just like the State of Hamas has one.

      The israeli army is afraid from the idea of controlling west bank cities, if they can they would keep like it was before Oslo.

  • Aug 5, 2019 @ 9:29 at 9:29

    Yet again, Abbas does Israel a favour. EU will need to pay a price . This gives Netanyahu a get out from the deal of the century

  • Aug 5, 2019 @ 9:44 at 9:44

    Leave it to Abbas to push the Israelis into the hands of the Right. Only a strong Right can face these beast called Arab Jihad.

      Zionist Jews try to control everything, but will never control Palestine. Hahahahaha. Sissies.

        ZSRC… Europeans Historically has been about Divide & Conqueror by Monarchies Colonialism, One Party Communism, and Multiple Fascism All Practiced in Europe and Spread Globally the Last 2 Centuries in Various Forms. Abbas has decided to End Oslo & Israel has a Right to Remain Reactive, Vigilant, & Defensive to Protect its Right to Existence that Palestinians Refuse To Reciprocate & Israel has a Right to Respond as well! Laughing won’t end Israel only your opinion.

    Israel’s response: BULLDOZERS READY TO ROLL!

  • Aug 5, 2019 @ 12:19 at 12:19

    From the Debka article:

    ” As an added incentive for builders, the PA is laying out generous financing from funds donated by European sources.”

    You can’t really blame the Europeans: they’re just taking proactive steps to limit the potential expansion of neighborhoods in many of their own capitol cities (i.e. France and Belgium) where even their police are afraid to go!

    Signed in 1993, the EU’s Oslo Accords, were meant to Build Trust between Israelis & Palestinians Bringing Peace to Mideast, but Failed. Iran, Hamas, Hizabllah, Houthis did the Opposite! The Palestinians Refuse Every Opportunity for Peace as well. Oslo failed so New Abbas-Bibi Agreement is better or none at all remains to be seen?

    Angela Merkel offically Refused to join Trump’s ‘coalition’ he’s trying to build to press Iran in the Strait. hehe hihihi. Sanctions? Hihih.

        Both the German and the French economies are in trouble. Their globalist policies on trade plus their unfettered migration where millions Of unemployable Muslims come in and don’t work but are a drain on social services is going down like a lead balloon with the natives. There will come a point when the population revolts, and that points is approaching fast. By October there will be difficulties in Europe. Tradewise Europe needs the US but the US does not need Europe. Sanctions against disobedient EU firms make the recession bite just that more harder for Macron and Merkel.
