Foxman: Obama should end unilateral statehood threat [dated: Oct 20]

Foxman: Obama should end unilateral statehood threat

WASHINGTON (JTA) -- After meeting with Israeli leaders, ADL National Director Abraham Foxman called on the Obama administration to “close all doors” to a unilateral declaration of Palestinian statehood.

The Anti-Defamation League leader, speaking to JTA from Jerusalem after meeting [October 19th] with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, among others, said it was his impression that the Palestinians are accelerating plans to have the U.N. Security Council recognize a unilaterally declared state.

“The Palestinians are engaged in an effort to see if they can pre-emptively establish a state,” Foxman said. “They seem to be engaged in this fantasy that the world will deliver them a state with very little. What it takes is for the U.S. to close every exit door and say ‘Get off this kick, you will not have our support.' ”
