Writes David Singer:
‘Two of the many intriguing matters facing the United Nations in dealing with any proposal to seek recognition of a Palestinian Arab State along the 1967 lines are:
1. Who will make such application on behalf of the Palestinian Arabs?
2. What conditions will the United Nations demand to ensure that up to 500,000 Jews living in the West Bank and East Jerusalem will not ultimately face arbitrary expulsion as a result of its decision?
Palestinian Authority President and PLO Chairman – Mahmoud Abbas – has stated that the PLO – not the Palestinian Authority – will be making the approach to the UN – telling a press conference:
“Going to the UN does not mean the end of the PLO. It’s the PLO that will submit the application to the UN for recognition of a Palestinian state. The PLO will remain the protector of the rights of the Palestinians until the establishment of a Palestinian state and the complete end of occupation.”
Hamas is not a member of the PLO – but both are sworn to eliminating the State of Israel – the former by jihad, the latter by acquiring territory in stages as a prelude to a final assault on the Jewish State.

Palestine, Lies and Videotape Posted By Daniel Greenfield http://frontpagemag.com/2011/09/07/palestine-lies-and-videotape/print/ Peace. We go to war in the name of peace. We maintain armies in the name of peace. And we turn a blind eye to murder and terrorism in the name of peace. The promise of peace convinced Israelis and Americans to give Arafat a [...]

Yet the 160 pages and 59 proposals also strike us as surprisingly timid and tactical considering our economic predicament. They’re a technocrat’s guide more than a reform manifesto. *** [...]
