RAMALLAH – Aides to the Palestinian president said Sunday that he will soon appeal to the international community to set a deadline for Israel to end its occupation of lands captured in the 1967 Six-Day War and make way for an independent Palestinian state.

The aides said President Mahmoud Abbas would present his proposal as part of a “day after” plan following the end of the current war in the Gaza Strip. Abbas is expected to unveil his plan at a meeting of the Palestinian leadership on Tuesday. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because he has not yet made the plan public.

One official said that Abbas has grown disillusioned after two decades of failed efforts to reach a negotiated peace settlement with Israel. He said the Palestinians want a fixed date for an Israeli withdrawal from lands claimed by the Palestinians and a timetable for establishing a Palestinian state.

“This should be done through a mechanism to compel Israel as the occupying power to end its occupation and agree on a timetable for the implementation of the withdrawal,” he said.

With Israel at war with Hamas militants in Gaza, Abbas has been searching for ways to assert himself on the international stage. He is seeking a foothold back in Gaza, which was captured from his forces by Hamas seven years ago, and is eager to show the Palestinian public he is working to end the fighting and lead the Palestinians to independence.

In an interview on Egyptian television over the weekend, Abbas said he would soon present his plans to Arab, American and European leaders.

“It is an unconventional solution, but I will not declare a war on Israel. It is a political and diplomatic solution,” he said.

He declined to elaborate, saying only that he would tell the United Nations in an address next month that the Palestinians want independence immediately. “Otherwise, this opportunity will be lost forever,” he said.

An aide to Abbas said the plan would include an appeal to the Security Council to call for an end to Israel’s occupation of lands captured in the 1967 Six-Day War.

The Palestinians seek the West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza for their state. Israel captured all three areas in 1967, though it withdrew from Gaza in 2005.

In a meeting in Qatar over the weekend, Abbas and Hamas leader Khaled Mashal agreed to set a timetable for “the end of the Israeli occupation” and the removal of the Gaza blockade.

The Qatari news agency reported the two also agreed to work to achieve a UN resolution that would bring to the establishment of a Palestinian state in the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital.

With Israel opposed to a withdrawal to its pre-1967 lines, it will likely seek US help in thwarting the bid. The US has historically vetoed Security Council resolutions seen as unfavorable to Israel.

The Palestinian official said that if this happens, the Palestinians will then begin the process of joining the International Criminal Court, where they could pursue war crimes charges against Israel.

Israel strongly opposes Palestinian attempts to pursue independence at the United Nations, saying it is an attempt to circumvent the negotiating process. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office declined comment on the latest Palestinian plans, saying it wanted to receive details officially.

  1. You can see the evil machinations behind what President Abbas said about not declaring war on Israel. He is going to try and convince the UN to side with him accusing Israel of war crimes and thus stop the UN from siding with Israel.This will leave the door wide open for Palestine to have unfettered access to attack Israel. But they will soon learn that God himself stands with Israel against her enemies. He will bring judgment on all (including America) who aide the enemies of Israel.

    • How very true. Things are lining up quickly to bring about the end of this age. It is ironic that as all this takes place many, most cannot see the unfolding events in the bigger picture…namely God foretold all this in the Bible – just what many of these people deny! Take a look at IS and the incredible violence against Christians, beheadings even crucifixions. Brings to mind this verse:

      John 16:2 They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh,
      that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God
      service
