“Abbas’ speech provides all the evidence as to why there is no peace. His distorted view of history of the Holy Land, speaks of ‘the ascension of the Prophet Mohammad and the birthplace of Jesus Christ,’ but has no room for Jewish prophets like Isaiah or Jeremiah or King David or King Solomon,” charged Rabbis Marvin Hier and Abraham Cooper, Founder and Dean and Associate Dean of the leading Jewish Human Rights NGO.
“And when President Abbas uses the podium of the United Nations to charge that Arabs have been under occupation for 63 years, he lays bare before the entire world that the core issue for the Palestinians isn’t Israeli settlements established as a result of the 1967 Six Day War, but the very legitimacy of Israel from the day of its founding in 1948. Simply put his view of reality has no room for a Jewish state,” Center officials added. [Simon Wiesenthal Center]
