The “Palestinians” were not even mentioned in UN Resolution 242. Resolution 242 came into being following the 1967 Arab war against Israel. Israel regained Judea and Samaria in a war of aggression by Jordan, which had no right to that territory in the first place.
Resolution 242 provided for the resolution of the conflict between Arabs and Israel (not “Palestinians”). The conflict was to be resolved between the parties to the conflict, not third parties. Any exchange of land was to be for a full and lasting peace with recognized borders. Nowhere does it say that Israel has to “return” to the 1949 armistice lines, the Auschwitz borders according to Abba Eban, former foreign minister.
Israel gave to Egypt all of the Sinai Peninsula in the hope of a full peace. Israel is still waiting for a full peace with the Arabs. But the conflict has not ended. Instead, the hot war turned into a psychological propaganda war, denying Israel’s history, its right to Eretz Yisrael and intensifying a boycott intended to isolate and destroy Israel.
The “Palestinians”, as already explained, are a creation of the Arab League and its proxy. Neither the Arabs nor the fake “Palestinians” have any rights to Judea and Samaria.
The “Palestinian Authority”, the PA, was a creation of the Oslo Accords which initially offered the “Palestinians” local autonomy. Israel does not want to rule over these people. But a local autonomy is all they should be given. There is simply no room for two viable states on the land of Israel, as already explained numerous times.
By threatening to unilaterally declare a state, the fake “Palestinians” are nullifying the Oslo Accords and all subsequent agreements. This puts and end to what Oslo created, namely, the “Palestinian Authority”, and relieves Israel of all obligations under Oslo and all other subsequent undertakings.juda
