Abbas on Facebook: Israel Is Our Occupied Land


abbasPalestinian 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.”
