Giving the PA Everything They Want Is Not Enough for the PLO.

Do you get the PA and the PLO mixed up?  Well, let's see if this helps.  Even if the PA gets U.N. recognition for statehood along the pre-1967 lines, the PLO will still demand that millions of Palestinians can return to their original homes inside Israel.  PA which represents 4 million in Gaza and the West Bank is only part of the PLO which represents 8 million Palestinians.  The PLO will continue to function until all Palestinian issues are settled.  Guaranteed job security for the PLO indeed.

One international law expert says Palestinians living outside the Gaza Strip and West Bank will lose their U.N. voice if the PA is granted Palestinian statehood, because the PLO has had 'observer' status at the U.N. since 1974.  Not so, says Abbas of the PA.

Abbas says he has 122 countries in the U.N. supporting his request for statehood, and hopes to get as many as 128.  There are now 193 members according to the available data.  Clearly, the PA will get its request except for one thing -- it also requires the approval of the Security Council, and there any member has a veto.  We're in for interesting times.

Abbas also says he doesn't want to "a clash with America because", get this, "we're not qualified for such a confrontation".   Seriously.  You think?   If they were, I'm sure they would want such a clash.

And watch for Abbas to be defeated as President once statehood is achieved.  Why?  Well, because he has said as long as he's in charge, there won't be an "armed intifada against Israel".
