A “solution to the conflict” between the Israelis and Palestinians will be put to the UN Security Council, French President Francois Hollande said yesterday after meeting Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas in Paris.

“We will have a resolution, to be presented to the Security Council, that will say very clearly what we expect from the (peace) process and what the solution to the conflict must be,” Hollande told reporters.

The French president said that stop-start negotiations had gone on “too long” and “there is a perception that there will never be a solution to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, even though we know the outlines” of a possible deal”.

The most recent armed confrontation was “the third time that Gaza has been destroyed,” Hollande said.

“What we must look for is a durable peace accord,” he said, adding that stalled peace talks “must now reach their end”.

Abbas urged “all countries to assume their responsibilities to end a conflict that has lasted more than 66 years”.

“Making peace will give added legitimacy to the fight against terrorism in the region,” he added.

Abbas, who is trying to build support ahead of a new Palestinian diplomatic push within the United Nations, said that France could give impetus to an Arab League-backed plan calling for an end to Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories and the formation of a Palestinian state based on 1967 borders.

After France, he is to go on to New York to participate in the annual UN General Assembly starting September 24.

The Palestinians, who have already won observer state status in the world body, are threatening to join the International Criminal Court, which could open the way to them urging the prosecution of Israeli officials for “war crimes”.

  1. There are no real Palestinians because they don’t want a true state – they simply want to destroy Israel and create a badly run, corrupt, Islamist, terrorist state. The simple and correct solution is for Israel to annex Judea and Samaria.

  2. ppksky Said:

    Palestinian Nationalism no longer has the same political momentum it once had in Europe

    I dont understand where you get this idea from as it appears to me that there is more pressure now for a TSS.
    ppksky Said:

    Just because Palestinian Nationalism is dead

    I would be ecstatic if this were true but I am not seeing evidence of this, in fact I am seeing more pressure in europe demand ing a pla state.

  3. @ bernard ross:

    In the beginning of the fraud of Palestinian Nationalism, the role of Islam was completely eclipsed as a public matter, when in fact it was the whole motivation. The inventor of Palestinian Nationalism, Amin al Husseini, was the Mufti of Jerusalem, the spiritual head and authority over Islam in the territory known as “Palestine”.

    Remember, at one time Palestinian Nationalism was a Marxist front, a client of the Soviet Union and an honored member of the global movement of communism. But these people were never Marxist, they just played on the antisemitic values of the dictatorship running the USSR. They were never as obliged to the values of Marxism as were the Vietnamese nationalists, for example.

    More recently, the global front for human rights has taken the role of babysitters for Palestinian Nationalism. But meanwhile Islam has decided that its future depends on carving out a lasting piece of the geopolitical sphere for itself. And Islam is making rapid progress for itself on this front. It no longer finds it necessary to masquerade its purposes anywhere, especially regarding Israel, the one and only Jewish state, Israel resurrected from its extinguished past and its Jews restored to their homeland.

    Islam has no experience with the values of human rights and so while Muslims are very handy about claiming human rights for themselves, they are very stingy about handing them out to others. And especially when it comes to Jews in the Middle East and certainly not Israel.

    The only hope that Islam has in its old investment in Palestinian Nationalism as an antisemitic front against Israel is in native antisemitism in the West. Of course antisemitism in the West has become a huge embarrasement and the best they can muster is the explosion in immigrants from Muslim countries into the western countries. Of course antisemitism still has many adherents among native Europeans, but antisemitism is a religious and political tool in Europe that has lost credibility. Those who advance antisemitism, especially as it sympathizes with the Middle East and especially in Israel, do so at risk to their own religious and political goals in Europe. Palestinian Nationalism no longer has the same political momentum it once had in Europe.

    Just because Palestinian Nationalism is dead doesn’t mean that Israel is no longer threatened by Muslims who claim Israel for themselves, it merely means that the dignity of nationalistic goals no longer legitimizes those threats.

    Nobody really believes any more that there is anything like a native Palestinian people…..But its over and the reverberations have only just begun

    I am curious as to why you believe this?
    ppksky Said:

    Palestinian Nationalism has always been and always will be an international fraud perpertrated against the Jewish people. It is no less that a “Protocols of the Elders of Zion” antisemitic fabrication existing on a geopolitical scale.

    absolutely

  5. The French sense something real, but what has happened is the facade of Palestinian nationalism is down. Palestinian Nationalism as political movement is dead. Nobody really believes any more that there is anything like a native Palestinian people or anyone really cares about a Palestinian State. Palestinian Nationalism has always been and always will be an international fraud perpertrated against the Jewish people. It is no less that a “Protocols of the Elders of Zion” antisemitic fabrication existing on a geopolitical scale.

    But its over and the reverberations have only just begun.

  6. France joins with arabs to swindle Jews, what’s new? My peace plan for the middle east is chaos and war in europe.

  7. He is just saying that because he fears some of his “country people” are planning to do something horrible to France. Hollande would rather sacrifice World Jewry to save The Triffel Tower.
