Israeli fundamentalists “praying” for unilateral Palestinian declaration of independence

by Yaniv Reich on November 17, 2009

Yesterday I posted an article about the evolution of Israeli responses to the currently tabled Palestinian threat to unilaterally declare independence. First, there was silence and confusion from Israel. Then, in sequence, the reactions moved from pleading with the Palestinians to threatening them if they took their case to the UN Security Council.

Today, MK Uri Ariel (National Union) captures the next phase of the evolving Israeli attitude: openly welcoming it because it will allow Israel to do away once and for all with that pesky two-state idea:

MK Uri Ariel (National Union) said that he hoped the Palestinian Authority would declare a unilateral independent state. “I pray that Mahmoud Abbas will declare a unilateral states,” Ariel said. “Only in this way will be be able to completely abrogate the cursed Oslo Accords, which has forced us to pay a high price in our blood, and has brought PLO terrorists into the center of the State of Israel.”

Ariel said that if the PA does declare a state, “Israel will have no choice but to immediately annex all Jewish towns in Judea and Samaria – in essence, all of the area, finally making it an integral part of the state.”
