Shaath “ We going to the UN, since the U.S. not serious about peace negotiations”

Palestinian senior negotiator Nabil Shaath

 

Ramallah, Washington – SaebPress    …   A United States proposal to push the Palestinians  leadership to withdraw their statehood bid at the United Nations and return to the negotiations table was the “last straw,” and convinced Acting Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas that appealing to the Security Council was the best option, Fatah official Nabil Shaath informed news reporters in Ramallah.

Saturday, Palestinian negotiator Nabil Shaath indicated that the Palestinian decision to appeal the Security Council was motivated by their rejection of a last-ditch U.S. attempt to sway the Palestinian Authority away from its planned statehood bid and toward resumed negotiations with Israel.

According to Shaath, the American proposal, which was delivered at the last minute by US envoys David Hale and Dennis Ross, did not mention a moratorium on settlement construction or the status of existing settlements.

“All that was written is that demographic changes that had been taking place since 1967 need to be taken into account when demarcating permanent borders”, furthermore   Shaath added that ‘’the proposal included many of Israel’s demands, including security arrangements, settlements and a solution to the refugee problem – without consulting the Palestinian side on these issues adding to that nothing was said or done to make us reconsider our appeal to the international community,” he said. “But we know that Netanyahu doesn’t like the idea of land swap. He wants to annex the settlement blocs for free,” he added.

Nabil Shaath confirmed that a plan delivered at the last minute by U.S. envoys David Hale and Dennis Ross did not meet several Palestinian demands, thus convincing Palestinian Acting President Mahmoud Abbas that the U.S. was not serious in trying to negotiate peace.

However American officials in Washington have confirmed to SaebPress, that the U.S. working hard to avoid the embarrassment of being forced to use its veto power in order to prevent the Palestinian vote, by trying to assemble enough security council members to either vote against the proposal or abstain as to make the veto unnecessary.

The US is on the diplomatic offensive on eight countries: Bosnia, Portugal, France, Britain, Germany, Columbia, Gabon and Nigeria is trying to persuade six other nations to oppose bid; the  two African nations and Bosnia are the hardest to sway. Security Council members Lebanon, Russia, China, Brazil, South Africa and India will support the Palestinians .

US president-elect Joe Biden and the Middle East

If Joe Biden rejoins the Iran nuclear ‎agreement ‎ and adopts Obama’s approach to the two-state ‎solution, with Palestine issue, which I believe he might do, since the ‎compromises made in the democratic party ‎between the Progressives ‎and the liberals during the ‎selection of the presidential candidate , indicated ‎that might be happening soon

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris

Interview with Saeb Shaath, Author and Middle East affairs expert and David Yaghoubian, Prof. of History, CSU San Bernardino.

Iran FM advises US president-elect to abandon Trump’s ‘disastrous lawless bullying’.

Shaath Said: “Zionist entity Prime Minister Benjamin ‎Netanyahu and Saudi Crown Prince ‎Mohammed bin Salman have kept silent since ‎American media projected Biden’s will win.‎ We can recall the Netanyahu-Kushner plan ‎which believed in and relied on Trump’s victory ‎for the second term, that would be followed by ‎Netanyahu’s victory in the elections, aiming to ‎implement their deal of the century and the ‎normalization of Arab countries ties with the ‎Zionist’ entity,‎”

Shaath went to say :” it did not accrue to the planners that ‎Trump would become the only American ‎president in three decades not be elected to ‎serve a 2nd term in office.‎”

Shaath added “what might do away with their planes …I think Biden ‎will revive the nuclear agreement with Iran, ‎since it was an Obama- Biden’s admiration ‎achievement …he will do it in a way that avoids ‎any clash with Zionist entity.”

Shaathe went on t o say “‎ If Joe Biden rejoins the Iran nuclear ‎agreement ‎ and adopts Obama’s approach to the two-state ‎solution, with Palestine issue, which I believe he might do, since the ‎compromises made in the democratic party ‎between the Progressives ‎and the liberals during the ‎selection of the presidential candidate , indicated ‎that might be happening soon.‎”

Shaath added “That means everything that Netanyahu and ‎Kushnaier, dreamed about in making the ‎Zionist entity the pivotal state in the ‎Middle East with the Gulf States and the rest of ‎the Arabic countries as their satellite States ‎such dream is over. ‎ Since its clear that Biden needs to pay attention ‎and to focuses US resources on fighting covid-19 and ‎to Jump Startg the US economy”. ‎

‎ Shaath concluded “Since the Netanyahu – Kushner’s Deal of the ‎Century and Arab normalisation relation with ‎Zionist entity geared up to create a military ‎alliance to face Iran… Joe Biden with reviving the US commitment to the Iran nuclear agreement does not need such alliance…as well Joe does not have a Dime to waist on Netanyahu’s dreams. ..This is the new way we going to see it happening in the region.”
