Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas asks for international protection from “terrorist Israeli settlers” and IDF forces.
He says it is necessary to call on member states to recognize the State of Palestine and be admitted as a full UN member.
He also says Israel has not adhered to its conditions for acceptance to the UN, and asks the UN to take “deterrent measures” against Israel until it fulfills UN resolutions.
Abbas says the Palestinians are carrying out a “peaceful, popular resistance” against a colonial occupation that does not believe in peace. “We will continue our peaceful popular resistance.”
Israel is stealing Palestinian natural resources, Abbas charges.
He also says Israel is responsible for the killings inside Arab cities in Israel, which have spiked this year.
