PA Plan Seeks Palestinian State Within 3 Years

JERUSALEM (Worthy News)-- Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas plans to pressure Israel to formally prepare a map of the borders of a Palestinian State with Jerusalem as its capital.

As The Times of Israel reported Monday, Abbas envisions filing a request with the Americans to pressure Israel to present a map of a future Palestinian state as the basis for substantive negotiations. After Israel presents the map, Abbas's plan calls for the Israeli withdrawal according to the three-year timetable, and the establishment of a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital.

If Israel rejects or delays resuming talks under Abbas's proposed framework, the PLO, headed by Abbas, would turn to unilateral moves, including appeals to the International Criminal Court against Israeli policies and officials.

In such a scenario, Abbas intends to apply all the diplomatic means at his disposal to pressure Israel, including, within three months, to seek a UN Security Council resolution that recognizes the establishment of a Palestinian state on the 1967 lines. -- Source
