Ex-Israeli Mayor: Declare 'Oslo Accords Null and Void'

By    |   Thursday, 20 Nov 2014 05:37 PM

In light of the recent attack on a Jerusalem synagogue, it's time to hold Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' party Fatah responsible for sponsoring terrorism and declare the "Oslo Accords null and void" because they haven't worked, David Rubin, former mayor of Shiloh, Israel, tells Newsmax.

Even though Fatah "did not praise the attack," Rubin, founder and president of Shiloh Israel Children's Fund, told Ed Berliner on "MidPoint" on Newsmax TV Thursday, "Fatah, which is Abbas's faction in their unity government, has been paying the terrorists."

"It doesn't matter whether they're Hamas terrorists or Islamic jihad terrorists or Fatah terrorists, Abbas's Fatah faction has been paying every single terrorist that commits a terrorist attack in recent years," he said.

"It's time we hold them accountable and not just complain about their incitement," he added.

"There is a partnership between Abbas and Hamas — the Palestinian authority is a unity government," Rubin explained.

"They have been financing the terrorists, inciting terrorism and encouraging terrorism," he said.

"I say let's go into Ramallah and go to the Mukataa, which is the Palestinian authority headquarters, and level it to the ground," he added. "That's what you do when someone is directing terrorism at your people."

Rubin contends that the ongoing conflict between the Palestinian authority and Israel shows that the Oslo Accords, which were signed in 1993, which former President Bill Clinton presided over, haven't worked.

Under the Oslo Accords, which were negotiated through secret meetings in Oslo, Norway, Israel agreed to recognize the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) as the official representative of Palestine and Palestine was granted self-rule over Gaza. In exchange, the PLO said it would renounce violence as well as recognize Israel's right to exist.

"There has to be a decision taken by the Israeli cabinets saying the Palestinian authority is an enemy authority, a terrorist authority, and the Oslo Accords have not worked, the so-called peace accords have not worked," Rubin explained.

"Once we do that, then you declare the Oslo Accords null and void," he said. "Hence, the Palestinian authority, which was established as a product of those peace accords, is null and void."
