Abbas: Israeli policies will lead ISIS into the heart of Israel

The Jerusalem Post

Abbas also called on the UN Security Council to draw up a resolution condemning the settlement enterprise; says Palestinians ready to resume peace process.
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday called on the United Nations Security Council to issue a resolution condemning settlements.
Abbas said that the resolution should also call for providing international protection for the Palestinians.
Abbas said in a radio interview that the “basic condition for achieving peace lies in the principle that Palestinians restore their lands on the 1967 borders.”
The Palestinians, he added, want to resume the peace process and reach a solution with Israel, “but only on condition that it implements 20 agreements that were signed since the Oslo Accords.”
Abbas said that another condition is the release of the fourth group of prisoners incarcerated before the signing of the Oslo Accords in 1993. The prisoners were supposed to be released in 2014 in accordance with understandings reached between the PA and Israel under the auspices of US Secretary of State John Kerry.
“The current Israel government of [Prime Minister] Benjamin Netanyahu, which includes seven settlers, does not want peace or the implementation of signed agreements with the Palestinians,” Abbas charged. “There is a conviction that the Israeli government won’t halt settlement construction. They have more than half a million settlers in the Palestinian territories.”
Abbas reiterated his support for countries that fight terrorism. He expressed fear that the policies of the Israeli government “would lead to the entry of Daesh (ISIS) into the heart of Israel.”
