Mahmoud Abbas Gives Israel One Year to End Occupation

HeadlineSep 27, 2021

In New York, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas spoke at the U.N. General Assembly and said Israel had one year to pull out from the Occupied Territories, threatening to withdraw recognition of Israel if it failed to do so. Abbas also said Israel’s actions were driving toward a one-state solution.

President Mahmoud Abbas: “If the Israeli occupation authorities continue to entrench the reality of one apartheid state as it is happening today, our Palestinian people and the entire world will not tolerate such a situation. Circumstances on the ground will inevitably impose equal and full political rights for all the land of historic Palestine within one state.”
