Abbas – Establish Palestinian State on “Occupied” Land
On that day the LORD made a covenant with Abram and said, “To your descendants I give this land, from the Wadi of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates” (Genesis 15:8)
Despite having announced that Egypt had offered land in the Sinai Peninsula to be annexed to the Gaza Strip to settle Palestinian refugees, Abbas continues to claim Judea and Samaria for his Palestinian state, along with East Jerusalem as its capital. The proposal for a Sinai enclave is said to have come from Israeli national security adviser Giora Eiland during the time in which Mohammed Morsi was Egypt’s president.
According to the plan, an area approximately five times the size of Gaza would be created in the Sinai and be referred to as “Greater Gaza.” It would contain PA citizens together with Palestinian refugees living in other countries. Under the plan the Palestinian Authority would continue to retain autonomy in Arab cities in Judea and Samaria but only if Abbas is able to maintain a viable administration in those areas.
In an interview on Egyptian radio in August of this year, Abbas noted that some in Egypt had “unfortunately” accepted the plan but added “We abolished it, because it can’t be.” Israeli Army Radio reported that the plan had more recently been picked up by current Egyptian president Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi and endorsed by Abbas, but in a statement made to the official WAFA news agency, Tayeb Abdel Rahim, secretary general of the Palestinian president’s office called this “fabricated and baseless.”
Now what are Abbas’ plans as he continues to go against the will of the God of Israel?

The English language Jerusalem Post reported that Sha’ath warned that if Israel does not complete a full withdrawal from the so-called West Bank, the Palestinians will turn to the international community and request that it deal with Israel “as it did apartheid South Africa.” Such a unilateral withdrawal by Israel is highly unlikely.
Noting that the Palestinian people are completely disillusioned with the US’s role in the peace process, Abbas’s top aide said that the Palestinian president will be asking the UN to set a deadline for a complete withdrawal of Israel to pre-1967 lines, within three years.
