France set to propose new Palestinian state resolution at UN

Wednesday, April 8, 2015 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News)-- The French government has seen a window of opportunity, following recent elections in Israel, to get the United States on board for a renewed effort towards an Israeli-Palestinian settlement, and is preparing a draft UN Security Council resolution, Ynet News reported.

The draft would define the pre-1967 borders as a reference point for talks but allow room for exchanges of territory, designate Jerusalem as the capital of both Israel and a Palestinian state and call for a fair solution for Palestinian refugees.

The French proposal also includes a requirement for Palestinian recognition of Israel as a "Jewish state," the Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas informed the Executive Committee of the PLO. That recognition is an Israeli demand that Abbas has rejected in the past. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4645117,00.html" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]

  1. Why doesn't France take in the Palestinians. They, like the rest of left wing Europe are fond of allowing Muslims to move in and take over their countries in the name of diversity. I love these other countries that are trying to bring peace to Israel and their neighbors. When the neighbors have said they won't rest until Israel is no more.
    (Psalms 83:4) They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.

    I'm surprised Obama hasn't suggested building a bridge across the ocean for the unhappy people to walk to the US to immigrate.
