(PresidentialHill.com)- Following the announcement of $64 million in help from the U.S. State Department to the U.N. agency for so-called Palestinian refugees, President Joe Biden told the UN on Wednesday that the Palestinians are “entitled” to their state.
President Joe Biden declared during his speech to the U.N. General Assembly, “We will continue to work for a durable, negotiated peace between the Jewish and democratic state of Israel and the Palestinian people.”
The United States is firmly committed to ensuring Israel’s security. And a two-state solution that is negotiated remains our best option for ensuring Israel’s future security and prosperity while also granting the Palestinians their rightful state, according to him.
Both individuals are “enjoying an equal amount of freedom and dignity,” Biden continued.
With the significant exception of the most recent government, every American administration that has come before has promoted the two-state solution, which has long been proven to be a total failure.
To begin with, it is impossible to mediate such a resolution with the Palestinian leadership in Ramallah since it lacks a partner for peace. The Biden administration praised Mahmoud Abbas for continuing his evil “pay-for-slay” system by restoring Palestinian aid. Abbas continues to pay monthly salaries to terrorists convicted of crimes against humanity and their families.
However, even if a two-state solution could be reached with the PA, Hamas, the terrorist organization in control of the Gaza Strip, would never agree to it. Hamas has sworn to wipe out Israel and all Jews “from the river to the sea” and liberate “Palestine.”
It’s also important to note that if Palestinian elections were held right now, Hamas would defeat Abbas’s Fatah party, according to all recent polls.
Beginning with attacks carried out by the late PLO leader Yasser Arafat in the 1990s after the failed Oslo accords, continuing through the Second Intifada in the early 2000s, and Israel’s withdrawal from Gaza in 2005, which resulted in 17 years (and counting) of rocket attacks, every Israeli attempt to offer land concessions has been met by terror waves.
The United States announced $64 million in aid for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) the day before Biden’s speech, increasing the Biden administration’s total commitment to UNRWA to around $700 million, according to the daily Haaretz.
The United Nations refugee organization received zero funding from the Trump administration because it was “irredeemably flawed.”
The Biden administration tries to convince the Palestinian leadership to abandon its quest for full UN membership. In 2012, “Palestine” became a non-member observer state.
Mahmoud Abbas, the president of the Palestinian Authority, urged Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to admit the international organization to full membership in his speech at the U.N. on Thursday.
The Palestinian mission to the UN said in a statement that it was the “last chance to salvage the role of the U.N. in peace. Supporting membership is an investment in peace and justice. It is an affirmation of the international community’s commitment to the universal values of human rights and the rule of law, as embodied in the U.N. Charter and respect for U.N. resolutions.”
