Kushner blames the Palestinians. Erekat blames escalation for "Deal of the Century" planners

Secretary of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization, Saeb Erekat, said today, Friday, that whoever proposes projects to legitimize the occupation and settlement is responsible for deepening the circle of "violence and extremism".

This came in response to the statements of the special advisor to the American President Jared Kushner, in which President Mahmoud Abbas blamed the tension in the occupied territories on the background of rejecting the American plan called "Deal of the Century".

Erekat said in a statement that "who proposes projects and plans for annexation and apartheid and the legitimacy of occupation and settlement is the one who bears full responsibility for deepening the cycle of violence and extremism."

He added that the President "brings with him to the Security Council the real peace plan based on international law, specific references and the principle of a two-state solution on the 1967 borders, fully supported by the international community, while Kouchner adopts apartheid, settlements, dictates and misleading, and stands behind the Council of Israeli colonial settlements."

Yesterday, the Palestinian presidency condemned the "dangerous Israeli escalation" after the killing of three citizens and the injury of dozens in a series of confrontations in West Bank cities with the Israeli army.

A presidential spokesman, Nabil Abu Rudeina, considered in a statement that the escalation taking place as a result of the American administration's announcement of its plan last week.

Abu Rudeina said, "It was the deal of the century that created this atmosphere of escalation and tension with the attempted imposition of false facts on the ground, which we have previously warned against again and again."

He added that "any deal that does not meet the rights of our people and does not aim to make a just and comprehensive peace, will inevitably lead to this escalation that we are witnessing today."

Kouchner blames Palestinians for "violence in the occupied territories"

Kouchner has blamed President Mahmoud Abbas for the escalation of tension and violence in the occupied West Bank since the plan was issued last week.

Kouchner condemned the statements of the Palestinian leadership, saying that the leaders who are ready for a state "do not call for days of anger and encourage their people to continue the violence if they do not get what they want."

He said he believed that President Abbas "was surprised at the quality of the plan for the Palestinian people, but he put himself in a position" by rejecting it before it went out. Kouchner said that President Abbas offers old dialogue points when the situation on the ground changes "and this may be the last chance to solve this issue."

Kouchner told a small group of reporters after briefing the UN Security Council on lunch at the United States Mission to the United Nations that the US proposal may be the last chance because the rate of expansion of Israeli settlements could prevent the establishment of a neighboring Palestinian state.

Kouchner said: "At the moment it is very difficult to have a continuous (Palestinian) state, enabling you to move by car from north to south, but that is still possible."

"The most constructive thing the Palestinians can do is sit down with the Israelis and discuss the plan line by line," he added.

Kushner warned: "If the Palestinians want to meet, we are happy with that, but we will not go after them."

Kouchner described his meeting with the Security Council as "very constructive", during which he asked many questions.

Kouchner said he and his team would follow up with the creation of a committee to draw up a detailed map and meetings with European and Middle Eastern countries to clarify the plan.

The US plan (Deal of the Century), which President Trump unveiled last week, proposes the establishment of a disjointed and demilitarized Palestinian state in which Israel controls the borders, gives the occupied valley to Israel and cedes major parts of the occupied West Bank to Israel, abrogates the right of refugees to return, and adopts the Israeli position On final status issues, including borders, the status of Jerusalem and settlements in the occupied territories.

In contrast, international resolutions insist on the right of the Palestinians to self-determination and the establishment of a sustainable and viable Palestinian state with national sovereignty over the Palestinian territories occupied by Israel in 1967, with East Jerusalem as its capital (the Old City), the complete elimination of Israeli settlement in the West Bank, and a just solution to the issue Palestinian refugees.

The State of Palestine Mission to the United Nations in New York continues to mobilize support and positions rejecting the American plan known as the "Deal of the Century" and prejudicial to the rights of the Palestinian people.

The Palestinian Mission to the United Nations stated in a press statement that meetings were held for the Non-Aligned Movement Coordination Organization and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation at the level of ambassadors and this Council of Arab Ambassadors, as well as bilateral meetings with United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and President of the General Assembly Tijani Mohamed Pandey, The President of the Security Council, the Non-Aligned Block in the Security Council, and other members of the Security Council except the United States, and they all affirmed that the solution lies in ending the occupation and the two-state solution on the borders of June 4, 1967 on the basis of Security Council resolutions and the General Assembly with For a link.

It is expected that President Mahmoud Abbas will address the Security Council next Tuesday (February 11).
