"I cannot accept, upon my honor, to remain the president of an authority that doesn't exist, because practically and from an international
perspective, we don't exist," Abbas said during an interview with a local Palestinian television station.
The dissolving of the Palestinian Authority will have severed consequences on Israel's economy and is likely to become a recipe for the
beginning of a new wave of violence. Palestinians say that the collapse will help organizations like Hamas and Hezbollah to gain more popularity as
they advocate using arms instead of peaceful talks with Israel.Please visit the link provided for the complete story.
I have wondered why the Palestinian Authority has lasted this long, as it has done little, if anything at all, for the Palestinian people, not even so
much as a faint hint of autonomy. It's almost as if the PA is a win-win for Israel, as the Zionist state doesn't have the full burden of administering
the Palestinian territories and the Palestinian people stay at least a little subdued with hope that there is at least a chance. The same thing with
the Israeli people, more or less. However, Israel is still clearly doing whatever Israel wants.
It is my belief that by dissolving the Palestinian Authority, this is only going to add burden on Israel, as not too much will change for the
Palestinians, other than a fleeting sense of hope, if hope was ever there. This situation can deteriate fast, regardless of which side of the fence
you sit on.
As far as the Obama admin failing to make any progress in the region, that's what many of us have been saying for years, even long before Obama was
known to the public. Clearly, Israel is in charge here and Israel is going to do whatever Israel wants, as they always do. Unfortunately, we don't
have the world's largest lobby groups lobbying Tel Aviv and the Israeli media.
