Eldad: PA Statehood Bid Cancels Oslo Accords

Member of Knesset Aryeh Eldad (National Union) responded, Thursday evening to the speeches of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Chairman Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority at the United Nations General Assembly by saying, "In light of Abu-Mazen's speech, Netanyahu should have announced that a PA application to the UN for recognition means cancellation of the Oslo Accords."

He added, "Netanyahu may be acting conciliatory to Abu-Mazen to win the world's support against Iran but today it is clear that the world will not lift a finger to stop Iran and Netanyahu is wasting precious time and only talking instead of attacking, and we'll come out with similar results against the Palestinians."
