Is it time for unilateral Palestinian statehood? Explore Jewish and Muslim history, rights and intentions for Palestine, with Prof. Abraham Sion

Mahmoud Abbas & Benjamin Netanyahu last year (AP)
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday that he was interested in meeting with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in New York: "I call on the chairman of the Palestinian Authority to launch direct negotiations in New York and continue them in Jerusalem and Ramallah." Netanyahu added: "I am offering President Abbas the chance to launch peace negotiations instead of wasting time on futile unilateral steps." YNet.com

Abbas responded,"I will meet any Israeli official any time," said Abbas, though he added that “there is no use if there is nothing tangible." The Palestinian Authority's attempt to end-run the Palestinians' signed obligations to conduct direct negotiations with Israel (in accord with the 1993 Oslo Accords) and obtain "national" recognition by the Arab-dominated United Nations- warrants an re-examination of the history and legal status of Israel and the "Palestinian" nationalist movement- the West Bank and Gaza and their irredentist quest to reconquer Israel for the Muslim world.

Prof. Abraham Sion, who head the Center for Law and Mass-Media at the Ariel University Center of Samaria, delivered this address earlier this year at the request of the Zionist Organization of America, in Los Angeles, California.
