Abbas: No peace without defining borders
In a televised address on final day of nine-month negotiations, Abbas lays out his conditions to continue talks

RAMALLAH — There can be no peace with Israel without first defining the borders of a future Palestinian state, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said on Tuesday.
“Since the creation of Israel, nobody knows what the borders are. We are determined to know our borders and theirs; without that there will be no peace,” he said as Washington’s nine-month deadline for reaching a peace deal expired, leaving the process in tatters. (cont.)
Well, that's not actually true.
Of course, the real borders are defined by The Almighty, and by Him alone.

As everyone can plainly see, "Palestine" is conspicuously absent from the map. So is Jordan.
Now, let's be honest, Mr. Abbas. YOU seem to think that THESE are the borders of Israel
Any group of people who wants to get together and identify themselves with this name or that, can do so. What do I care?
But, when you identify yourselves using the name of my People's Land, applied to it by the Romans in order to de-Jewify it, as a means to steal my People's Land out from under us, taking advantage of the Israeli Government's lack of a back bone, then I have to call you on it.
And where did your chosen name of Palestine come from in the first place? The Romans got it from the Philistines, who had possession of what is now the Gaza Strip, and adjacent pieces of Israel's west, hardly anything at all, compared to the map of Israel. The Romans applied it to all of Israel, in an attempt to de-Jewify the area, in an attempt to disconnect the Jewish from their Land.
Just an early example of Esau wanting his birthright back. HaZ"aL intertwines Esau with the Roman Empire
This is not about who got here first. This is not about an outside entity, such as the the UN, granting us permission to take possession of a fraction of the Land that was once ours. This is not even about who conquered it, and who were subsequently wishy-washy about it, deciding to placate the non-Jews of the West, instead of please The Almighty. Jews are the guilty ones, that is, guilty of enabling the myth of a Palestinian homeland to continue.
The Land of Israel was initially assigned to the 7 Nations, and was later taken away by The Holy One, Blessed Be He, Who initially assigned it to them in the first place.
No matter what Jews and non-Jews believe, He in the one who decides who is in possession of the Land.
In תשל"ד/1973, תשכ"ז/1967, תש"ח/1948, He decided that it would be in our possession, even though the Israeli Government never fulfilled, and still has not fulfilled, our part of the bargain, to take full possession of the Land, whenever possible, without any ifs, and, or buts.
The Israeli Government has even had the hutzpah (nerve/gall) to give parts of the conquered Land back to those who had no historical connection to it whatsoever. I said "give," and not "trade," as the Arabs have never given us anything in return, save for non-aggression and trade agreements, allowing countries such as Egypt and Jordan to feed off of the money from Israeli tourists, along with off co-dependent offerings/gifts/payoffs.
In תשס"ו/2006, we fought back Hezbollah murderers, finally regaining possession the northern tip of Israel. This area, bordered on the northern by the Litani River, which most people in the world refer to as southern Lebanon, was then abandoned by the Israeli Government, for the sake of peace. But instead of peace, missiles just kept coming.
In תשס"ה/2005, the Israeli Government, under Ariel Sharon, was even more pathetic, disconnecting completely from the Gaza Strip, and expelling almost 10,000 Jews from their homes, and from lands where Yitzhaq Avinu sojourned (Gen. 26), and without even expecting anything in return!
Worse yet, aside from protests, begging the Western world to listen to reason, and the expression of anger at the ballot box, we have stood idly by, allowing the Israeli Government to proceed on its course of sacrificing Jewish lives, in the name of auctioning off our God-given Land to the highest, lying bidder, eventually leading to the end of our current potential, Jewish sovereignty over Land, not to mention our Land itself.
Regardless of where Jews or Arabs believe the borders in the area should be drawn, they can only be determined by The Almighty himself. And if Jews do not stand up and say, this is ours, and follow through on that statement with the necessary actions, then why on earth should we expect the Almighty to hand it to us miraculously on a silver platter?
We all know the in the end, he will put all of it into our hands. However, to those of you not fighting for it now, and not declaring the Torah truth that Eretz Yisra'el is connected to no one, but Am Yisra'el, ask yourselves this question:
When it does eventually come into our possession, will they still be a place reserved for you within it?
