The Palestinian Authority is a “dead man walking”

Palestinian Authority (PA) head Mahmoud Abbas


Palestinian Authority (PA) head Mahmoud Abbas flew to Brussels this week to seek recognition of a Palestinian state from the European Union but failed to generate any substantial support.

European diplomats and officials told AFP that recognition of Palestine is not an option, that the EU leaves such a move in the hands of individual states[…]

[…] In a fiery speech during which he cursed President Donald Trump for his recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, Abbas voiced support for acts of violence against Israel.

In response, Israel slammed Abbas’s speech for being anti-Semitic and for denying the Holocaust. Abbas in his anger and frustration has let his mask slip and in doing so has revealed the Palestinian Authorities true nature.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said,”I heard what Abu Mazen [aka Abbas] said. He has revealed the truth. He has torn off the mask and shown to the public the simple truth that I have been working to instill for many long years: The root of the conflict between us and the Palestinians is their steadfast refusal to recognize the Jewish state in any borders whatsoever.”

The Palestinian Authority under Abbas is a dead man walking. President Trump was not bluffing when he threatened to cut millions in contributions to force Abbas to come to the negotiating table to work out a peace deal with Israel. Abbas is no longer in a strong position to demand anything from anyone. Why didn’t Obama do what Trump is doing? He handed over millions of dollars year after year and expected nothing in return for it.

Throughout time, aggressors knew when they were winning and when they were losing. By contrast, Israel’s Muslim Arab enemies do not behave like your typical aggressors. The more Israel’s enemies lose, the more aggressive and demanding they become.

[…] The US was not popular in post-1945 Japan, but the defeated Japanese knew that they were in no position to demand anything from Washington.

In flagrant violation of international law, the Arabs launched a war of aggression against reborn Israel in 1948 with the explicit goal of wiping the Jewish state off the map. Despite the fact that the power of balance was clearly in favor of the Arabs, Israel won the bloody war that claimed one percent of the Jewish state’s population.

Over the past 70 years, the Arabs have tried to destroy Israel through military means, terrorism, political propaganda, legal warfare at the UN and the international Boycott Divestment Sanctions(BDS) campaign.  The attempts to destroy Israel have not merely failed. Israel has transformed dramatically from a poor and fragile embryonic state in 1948 to a technological and military powerhouse in 2018.[…]

The economic, military and technological balance of power has clearly shifted in Israel’s favor. However, Arab leaders in general and the Palestinian Authority (PA) leadership in particular continue pretending to be the winners and setting demands. In his recent and now-infamous Ramallah speech, PA President Mahmoud Abbas’ false mask of “moderation” finally collapsed completely. Abbas lashed out at Israel, the US and the international community. The PA leader cursed President Donald Trump and erased more than 3,000 years of Jewish history in Israel by falsely calling the Jewish state a “colonial project” of European powers.

The rambling anti-Semitic conspiracy theories coming out of Abbas’ mouth finally vindicated those who have said for years that the PA is not a genuine peace partner.[…]
