Tepid Palestinian Authority UN Upgrade Bid


Abbas serves Israel, not Palestine.

by Stephen Lendman

Instead of going for easily within reach full UN membership, Abbas prefers settling for less. Why he'll have to explain.

Others say it reflects his longtime collaboration with Israel. Doing so betrays his own people. Why they tolerate him, they'll have to explain.

If he follows through as planned, he'll get what he asks for. He'll upgrade Palestine from observer to non-member status. It's like being club member with most rights but not all. Non-member states can't vote. 

Full de jure status requires following simple procedures that work. Abbas categorically refuses. Who knows if he even follow through on his lesser pledge. 

He breaks many more promises than he keeps. He cares more about his own status than Palestine's. That's how collaborationists govern. Trust and honor aren't in their vocabulary. Betrayal defines it.
