PA blasts Israel leader's remarks on Palestinian state

RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- The Palestinian Authority denounced Israel's deputy defense minister Thursday after he stated there would never be a Palestinian state and suggested Jordan as an alternative.

Foreign minister Riyad al-Malki said Danny Danon's remarks to Israel's Channel 1 TV exposed the "true face" of the occupation as well as the strategy followed by the Israeli government since 1967.

Al-Malki said he sent messages to the UN, the Arab League and the EU to inform them of the obstacles threatening the peace process in general, evidenced by the Israeli official's remarks. He said the remarks were aimed at undermining US Secretary of State John Kerry's efforts to restart peace talks.

Danon told Channel 1 that said there would never be a Palestinian state and that Palestinians will be governed by Jordan.

"The Jewish people are not settlers in the West Bank but Israel will make the Palestinians settlers and Jordan will be the one taking control over Palestinians and that's it," Danon said.

Asked about Kerry's upcoming visit, the Knesset member said there would never be a Palestinian state, whether Kerry visited or not.

Israel will control the empty land in the West Bank and turn Palestinian population centers into Jewish settlements, Danon said.

He added that the Israeli government and the Knesset shared his opinions, even if they did not admit it publicly.

Palestinian lawmaker Mustafa Barghouti responded to Danon's remarks by saying they showed that any return to peace talks with the current Israeli government would be "meaningless."

He called for a new strategy based on popular resistance and boycotting Israel. He also urged Palestinian leaders to seek assistance from the International Criminal Court.

Lets get something straight, the 67 borders were created wen israel was attacked, blame all the arab nations who atttacked for the borders being what they are today. if they were the borders of today, by tonite israel would be attacked.
second, regarding the last sentence, all arabs believe in their hearts that israel should be pushed into the sea. look at the constitutions and charters of the PA and hamas and iraq and iran and saudi arabia etc..

''The Palestinian Authority denounced Israel's deputy defense minister Thursday after he stated there would never be a Palestinian state and suggested Jordan as an alternative. '' Denounce till your blue in the face, the truth often hurts. It's an empty land along Jordan's Route 5 and Route 10 and JOrdan also requires their desert to bloom

Until the PA starts campaigning for a single bi-national state on all Historic Palestine for all who currently live there, they might as well save their breath. Oslo is dead - if it was ever alive - and so is the two state solution.

At the end of it all,whether it takes five years or another sixty five.....Jordan is the answer....maybe sixty per cent are Palestinians anyway..There can be great co.operation between the two states....no Jews in Jordan to aggravate the situation....it makes perfect sense....the Arabs who want to stay east of the river are welcome....some as citizens...others as valued residents with full property and civil rights...but with Jordan.....or call it Palestine passports.....makes perfect sense

Stupid comment. That said, the Palestinians need to SHOW they want statehood by dropping all the nonsense and moving directly to the negotiating table with Israel. Otherwise, status quo - and we know that is a losing strategy.

"Al-Malki said he sent messages to the UN, the Arab League and the EU to inform them of the obstacles threatening the peace process..." - he forgot to send his messages to UNESCO, FIFA, International Olympic Committee, International League of Gays and Lesbians and some other international institutions. Poor guy, his memory is not good any more - he will be fired soon.

The Palestinians need to do everything they can to publicize Danon's remarks and note that he did in fact represent the position as official Israeli policy.

Was there ever ANY doubt as to Zionism's 'master plan' from even before 1947? NO!NO!NO! It's always been the ultimate EXPULSION persecution,subjugation of the occupied people of Palestine by USG imperialist patronee(illegal)Israel.The only thing Israel/US Zionists ever focused on was a white-Jewish-fascist theocracy called "Israel"(akin to Saudi's theocratic monarchy),with all Muslims&Christians EXPELLED!Ultimate shame on our USG for patroning that all along! RETHINK Obama! Global consensus/international laws for Palestine? Or more BLOWBACK on US Foreign Relations &integrity for pro-Zionist VOTES?Pick yer' podium!

Palestinians do not need a state and they never wanted a state of their own: they did not want it in 1947, they did not even try to establish it in 20 years between 1948 and 1967, they walked away from negotiations and establishing a state in 2000 and 2008. The only thing which palestinians want is to destroy Israel and kill the Jews. Beyond that it does not matter for them who are the rulers - Turks or Jordanians or Egyptians. There are no such things as palestinian people or palestinian state.

Assuming for the sake of the conversation if every Palestinians pack their belongings and go to Jordan and there are no Palestinians any longer what Israel going to do. They have to fight someone. They will not survive without Hamas in Gaza, or Hezbollah. Netanyahu said few weeks ago that the US did not request from Israel to stop the settlements, now Danon said no Palestinian State regardless what Kerry does. It seems we have a conflict of interest within the Israeli government.

# 1 - read a bit more. Israel attacked first in 1967. And talking of looking at charters, have a look at the Likud charter, in existance for years and years. Won't take long. Read especially, those bits about there will never be a Palestinian state and Israel's border to end at the Jordan River. # 4 - making peace with Israel means giving them all the land they want in return for peace.

Lets face the truth.....all of Israel is front the sea to the river.....the Arabs that live in this area,need to understand,that is does not matter what Obama and the want.....the Israelis and the Palestinians can not live side by side,without fierce defensive methods...which hardens the Palestinians lives....which in turn makes them react violently...who can blame them?....the only answer is Jordan...retire the king to a castle in England....make Jordan ....maybe then peace can rein...

We have always known the true motives of the Zionists to remove every Palestinian, whether bodily, or name only. CAN YOU IMAGINE THE PALESTINE BEING CALLED JORDANIANS IN THEIR OWN LAND OF PALESTINE. Danny Danon is stupid, and arrogant, boastful man. 'GOD IS STRONGER THAN YOU OR GOVERNMENTS, YOU ARE HASTENING THE JUDGEMENT DAY OF GOD. ANGELS ARE ALREADY PUTTING THEIR MARK ON ZIONISTS FOREHEADS - MARKING THEM FOR DESTRUCTION ON JUDGEMENT DAY. EVERY ZIONISTS WILL BE REMOVED GONE - GONE FOREVER

The PA has already been blasting Israel for 65 years, and The PA will be blasting Israel for another 65 years, followed byanother 65, and then another, until 650 years pass, and still PALESTINE WILL NEVER BE CLOSER TO BECOMING A REAL STATE.

(23) Tibi/Tubas How very wrong you are in your thinking. Palestine will inherit the land of their forefathers, and after the Judgement day of God on the Zionists, and the land is cleansed from all the apartheid evil. Then Palestine refugees will return to a land full of peace and security. AND PALESTINE WILL RETURN TO THE NAME OF THE LAND OF PROMISE, WHICH WAS PROMISED TO ABRAM AND HIS DESCENDANTS, AND BE CALLED CANAAN LAND ONCE AGAIN. AMEN!

I hear your fantasy, but you should realize some basic truths: - Another people have already "inherited the land of their forefathers", Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, David, etc., and 2- TALKS ARE THE ONLY WAY that Palestinians have made any gains at all on the Lands of Judea & Samaria (the West Bank), and 3- Since Palestinians now refuse to talk, they will make no further gains, with "Palestine" remaining an impoverished "Authority" over numerous scattered "islands" of the Areas A & B.

(23) Tiba/Tubas Let me educate you. Abram Isaac and Jacob were not related. Moses an d the exodus never happened. David and Solomon's kingdom never happened. Joshua never conquered the land. How do I know all these things, I watched on youtube 'the bible unearthed' by Israeli archaeologist Israel Finkelstein Now info from me Abram married an Egyptian princess named Agar she was not a slave. Ismael born in Egypt. Also married an Egyptian. Joseph married an Egyptian. continuation.............

(23) continuation. Jacob, was mummified he had an Egyptian state funeral read about it in your own bible. Genesis chapter 50. Also Joseph was mummified. Circumcision came out of Egypt see circumcision painting in the tomb of Ankhmahor in Egypt. Youths were 13 years of age, not babies! Abram ruled in Egypt as an Hyksos king, the true exodus was of the Hyksos (foreign rulers) Yaqubel also Hyksos ruler. Abram did not adopt Judaism. It was not invented in his day. It was Judaism who adopted Abram.
