Palestinian Authority: Peace and Stability Only If You Accede to Our Demands
Nabil Abu Rudeineh, the spokesman for the Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas, slammed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech at the United Nations (UN) General Assembly, promising that there will be no peace or stability until the "Palestinian nation's" demands are met.
In his speech, Netanyahu said, "Many decades of efforts to make peace with Arab Nations have failed because they were based on one false assumption - that the Palestinians must be appeased as a precondition to peace. The Palestinians have much to gain from new peace agreements. They should be part of these agreements, but they should not have a veto on peace."
Responding to this, Abu Rudeineh said, "There will be no peace or stability in the region without placating the Palestinian nation and fulfilling its demands … Peace will begin from Palestine and stability will begin when the Palestinian nation achieves its national and legitimate rights and an independent Palestinian nation whose capital is eastern Jerusalem is created."
Meanwhile, last week, hundreds of Palestinian rioters gathered along the Gaza Strip, shortly after six Palestinians were killed in Judea and Samaria and Gaza within a 24-hour period. On Friday, September 22, a large fire broke out near Kibbutz Kissufim near the Gaza-Israel border, after Gazans flew incendiary balloons across the border, and some landed near the kibbutz. The last time an incendiary balloon sparked a fire near Gaza was two years ago.
Several fires broke out again along the Gaza border on Sunday afternoon, according to Israeli media. An additional battalion will be sent to reinforce the Gaza area, the IDF Spokesperson's Unit said, following a visit by Defense Minister Yoav Gallant and continued arson attacks from the terrorist enclave.
