Abbas Speech Signals Capitulation - by Stephen Lendman

On September 23, Abbas will capitulate to Washington and Israel.

Without saying it, he left little doubt how he'll petition the UN on September 23.

Speaking on television from Ramallah, he said:

"We are going to the United Nations to request our legitimate right, obtaining full membership for Palestine in this organization."

"We are going to the Security Council." He must. It's procedure, but a US veto is toothless as only the General Assembly admits new members. The Security Council only recommends.

"As for other options, we have not yet taken a decision on them."

In effect, he suggested he won't petition the General Assembly after a certain Security Council veto, or if he does it'll be for less than full rights. As a result, he'll capitulate when victory is within easy reach.

He also wants Palestine recognized within 1967 borders with East Jerusalem (Al-Quds) as its capital.

Most important, he said he can't guarantee success. As a result, he tipped his hand. 

He revealed his collaborationist intentions, suggesting he'll accept less than what Palestinians waited decades for and deserve - statehood and full de jure UN membership they won't get as long as Abbas or collaborationists like him have power.

Since the late 1980s, PLO officials knew exactly how to petition properly for full rights. Abbas and those around him know.

On September 23, when the moment of truth arrives, he'll take the low road, not the high, effectively capitulating to Washington and Israel.

A previous article said the fix is in. Indeed so. What'll emerge will be called victory. In fact, it'll be defeat - a worthless half loaf, not what's within reach. Better he stay home instead of showing up for betrayal.

Yet disingenuous pieties claimed:

"What I will take to the UN will be the suffering and concerns of our people that have been taking place of 63 years living under the occupation."
