Jeopardizing Deal, Palestinians to Approach UN for Statehood

The PLO leadership on Monday night announced that it is in the process of putting together a plan for the Palestinian Authority to join international organizations under UN direction, as well as sign international conventions, Israel Radio reports.

The plan is being devised by the PLO political committee, on instructions from PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas.

When the current peace negotiations began, some seven months ago, the Palestinians committed to delay approaching international organizations for recognition, in return for the release of 104 terrorists from Israeli jails.

That one worked out nicely.

The PLO announcement Monday night blamed Israel’s government for the difficulties in the political process.

Jewish Home Chairman and Minister of the Economy Naftali Bennett told Israel Radio there’s no difference between Abbas and his predecessor Yasser Arafat. Bennett said the PA chairman, like Arafat, keeps talking about a million shahids-martyrs marching on Jerusalem and refusing to ever give up the “right of return,” not just for Arab refugees who actually left their homes in Israel in 1948-9, but all of their descendants.

Likud MK Tzachi Hanegbi told Israel Radio that it appears the Palestininas have been objecting to the U.S. attempts to galvanize a statement of principles reflecting the progress that’s been reached on some core issues. Hanegbi believes has been gravitating to an anti-peace position from which he is refusing to depart, over Jerusalem, the right of return and recognizing Israel as a Jewish state.

Senior Labor MK Eitan Cabel told Israel Radio he thinks neither side has been negotiating in good faith, and they each spend their time looking for ways to pin the failure of the talks on the other.

On Sunday, Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki met with Secretary of State John Kerry it the office of the American ambassador to Paris, and told the secretary that the Palestinians oppose recognizing Israel as a Jewish state and insist that East Jerusalem becomes the future Palestinian capital.

Commenting on Kerry’s new shuttle meetings with Arab foreign ministers who are members of an Arab League committee, to solicit their support for the peace process, al-Maliki said Arab diplomats support the Palestinian position on all major issues.

    It really is a good idea for a true Palestinian State. What that means is the next time a rocket lands in Israel, the Israelis can retaliate as if it was Syria, Lebanon, Iraq or Iran, and wipe the Palestinians off of the earth, and do it legitimately.

  2. Good let them approach the UN then we can end this farce once and for all!

  3. TO hell with all the U N members that’s where they will be

  4. Joel Keller says:

    Isn't Mr. Abbas now serving in the 9th year of his 4 year term of office? He's an authoritarian dictator, just like they have in all the Arab and Islamic countries.

  5. Loren Gee says:

    Can do that already.

    Unless Israel gives the Jordanian colonists any land – they will be the first virtual country. The UN cannot give any land to anybody for any reason

  6. Bill Bilek says:

    Loren Gee "The UN cannot give any land to anybody for any reason"
    True.

    My fear is a UNSC Chapter VII Resolution on which the U.S. abstains, calling in international sanctions on Israel as "a risk to world peace", until Israel agrees to give "the Jordanian colonists" land.

    Bill Bilek – violation of both Article 2, Paragraph 7 and Article 78 of the UN Charter and it is above UN Security Council Resolutions
