Netanyahu calls on world to pressure Palestinians after Abbas refuses to recognize Jewish state

Netanyahu and AbbasPrime Minister Binyamin on Monday attacked Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas for his refusal to recognize Israel as the Jewish state. “The chairman of the PA was quoted today as saying that he is not prepared to recognize the Jewish state. And this comes with him knowing that there will not be an agreement without recognition of the nation state of the Jews,” Netanyahu said at the Likud faction meeting. The prime minister’s comments came after Abbas told The New York Times on Monday that he was willing to allow Israeli troops to remain in the future Palestinian state for a five-year transitional period, after which they would be replaced by US-led NATO troops to ensure Israel’s security. He added, however, that he would not recognize Israel as a Jewish state. Netanyahu said that it is “absurd” to think that Israel would acquiesce to a peace agreement that entails Israeli recognizing a Palestinian state without gaining Palestinian recognition of a Jewish state. “Now we will see if those same international actors, who until now have solely put pressure on Israel, will make clear to the Palestinian Authority what exactly will happen to the Palestinians if there will not be an agreement,” Netanyahu said. “Because, unless the Palestinians understand that they will pay a price for the failure of peace talks, they will prefer not to continue the talks,” he added.
