Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas Sunday vowed to pursue efforts to end the split between the West Bank and Gaza and thanked Hamas and all Palestinian groups for supporting his statehood bid at the UN.

Abbas, who was speaking to thousands of supporters in Ramallah during a rally organized by the PA to celebrate the UN General Assembly’s vote in favor of upgrading the status of the Palestinians to non-member observer state, said he would focus his efforts now on “restoring unity of the Palestinians and their lands and institutions.”

The crowd, which consisted mostly of PA civil servants and Fatah activists, responded by chanting, “We want national unity!” and “With blood and soul, we redeem Abu Mazen

  1. Abbas is but a nuisance. I’ll be surprised whether his diplomacy will result in reconciliation between HAMAS and the PLO. If it does, they had be careful what they ask for.

    One might wonder, what is Abbas’ goal in all this. It is no different than Arafat’s goal in 2000. Basically, the PLO and their HAMAS collaborators want to attack and kill Jews with impunity. To do this, they seek the protection of the UN.

    You think it’s impossible? Consider the protection Hezbollah enjoys in Southern Lebanon. The Israelis agreed to a cease fire in 2006 in exchange for an agreement by Hezbollah to disarm and a “UN peacekeeping force ‘with teeth'” to enforce the dis-armament. The result was that Hezbollah re-armed faster and with heavier ordinance than before. The UN force might have had heavy munitions, but they were too cowardly to carry out their missions. After all, none of them want to “die for the Jews.”

    Lebanon has the advantage of being a sovereign nation. The PLO does not. To the extent they move forward toward being recognized as a sovereign nation, the more they can request UN forces to “control those pesky terrorists we can’t control”, much like Lebanon. They know the UN can be counted on to protect anti-Semitic murderers. That sir, is their goal.

    Turning back the clock, the first thing Yasir Arafat asked for during the riots of 2000 was UN peacekeepers. The U.S. said “no way!” Sec. of State Albright was one step from getting Arafat to call off the riots when our good buddy President Jaques Chirac barged in and told Arafat in essence: “Stick to your guns. We’ll (France) get you those peacekeepers you want.” Arafat barged out the door with Albright chasing after him. The rest is history.

    Long before liberals were blaming George Bush for causing French animosity toward the U.S., this animosity existed in the leadership of Jaques Chirac. It was never Bush’s fault any more than it was Clinton’s fault. It was Jaques Chirac’s fault.

    Now there’s a “new Sheriff in town” in France. Chirac’s willingness to push for UN peacekeepers in the wake of Israeli/Arab fighting may or may not be a portion of French foreign policy. I think it’s something to keep an eye on. Already, they are meddling in Syria.

    In conclusion, Abbas is nothing more than a nuisance. Arabs have no more sovereignty in Palestine today than yesterday. The danger lying ahead is whether they can finally obtain the full level of protection (military and diplomatic) they seek in their effort to murder Jews.
