In a speech at the United Nations via video link, the Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas posed an ultimatum before Israel, saying it had “one year to withdraw from all the Palestinian territories.”
Failing that, he said, the Authority will turn to the International Court of Justice.

Abbas accused Israel of all but destroying the two-state solution with actions he said could lead Palestinians to demand equal rights within one binational state comprising Israel, the West Bank and Gaza.
The 85-year-old, who is in the 17th year of his four-year term, urged the international community to act to save the ‘two-state solution’.
In a false accusation, Abbas said, “If the Israeli occupation authorities continue to entrench the reality of one apartheid state as is happening today, our Palestinian people and the entire world will not tolerate such a situation.”
Why Israel answers the critical questions and presents the essential reasons why Israel matters to God, to Christians and to the world.
We call upon the UK Government to officially recognise Jerusalem is Israel's capital and move its embassy to Jerusalem.
