One Reaction to a Palestinian State Declaration

From United with Israel, 6 Sept 2011:

Israel is now preparing for what many believe will be a fatal blow to the peace process – the unilateral declaration of a Palestinian state in the United Nations.

According to the Oslo accords, co-signed by the United States and European countries, no unilateral steps were allowed to be taken by either side. Instead, peace would be negotiated directly between Israel and the Palestinians. The Palestinian Authority’s plan for a unilateral declaration of statehood openly breaks the agreements signed at Oslo.

Israel expects world leaders, especially in the United States and Europe, to understand that unilateral statehood declaration nullifies all aspects of the cooperation agreement and frees Israel from fulfilling any of its commitments in that agreement.

The Israeli government and various politicians have been coming up with “day after” plans to respond to this unilateral declaration.

In this video, Knesset Member Danny Danon promotes the idea of counteracting Palestinian statehood by annexing Judea and Samaria (known as the “West Bank”).
