This was PA President Mahmud Abbas's "bombshell" he dropped at the United Nations? The bombshell that the U. S. Secretary of State actually put effort into pressuring him not to drop it? Seriously?

The Palestinian leader's speech comes amid continued clashes between Israelis and Palestinians in the West Bank and east Jerusalem.
“Israel must assume all of its responsibilities as an occupying Power, because the status quo cannot continue,” President of the Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas declared in his speech in front of the UN General Assembly on Wednesday.
Abbas made clear that the Palestinian authority was no longer bound by the Oslo Accords, signed 22 years ago. According to him, Israeli settlement activities and refusal to release the fourth group of Palestinian prisoners during the US-backed peace talks last year, show Israel is not committed to the two-state solution.
“We will not remain the only ones committed to the implementation of these agreements while Israel continuously violates them,” Abbas said.
The annoucement came after the Palestinian leader had promised to “drop a bombshell” during his address. In the days before the speech however senior palestinian officials had said that Abbas may not do so after pressure from US Secretary of State John Kerry.
Mahmoud Abbas also urged the General Assembly to grant Palestine, which only holds the status of an observer state at the UN, full recognition and membership.
He also added that it is “unreasonable and painful” that the question of Palestine “unjustly remains unresolved.”
“The question of Palestine was one of the first just issues brought before the United Nations from the time of its inception, and yet it remains unresolved until this moment,” he said, “The United Nations and its members continue to be unable to end this injustice inflicted upon our [the palestinian] people and to assist our [the palestinian] people to exercise their right to self-determination and freedom in their independent and sovereign state.”
Speaking about internal Palestinian politics Abbas assured the General Assembly that he is “determined to preserve unity” and form a national unity government that functions according to the program of the Palestine Liberation Organization through presidential and legislative elections. “We will not accept temporary solutions or a fragmented State,” he said.
Mahmoud Abbas also spoke about the situation on Temple Mount in Jerusalem. He said that “extremist Israefi groups are committing repeated, systematic incursions upon Al-Aqsa Mosque” under the protection of the Israeli government.
“We will not accept this, and the Palestinian people will not allow the implementation of this illegal scheme, which is aggravating the sensitivities of Palestinians and Muslims everywhere,” he added.
|U. N. 1947 Partition Plan|
Fourth release of Arab terrorists with Jewish blood on their hands shows that "Israel is not committed to the two-state solution."
Oh, if only that were so!
Unfortunately, all is means is that the Israeli Government was not feeling as suicidal at the time, as it usually does.
That it was. However, Abbas conveniently neglects to mention here that the Arabs rejected the United Nations partition of 1947. Instead, Jordan, Iraq, Syria, and Egypt preferred to wipe out the Jewish People within their grasp, and take all of Eretz Yisra'el (Land of Israel) for themselves. The country of "palestine" is not included here, because it has never existed. Jordan was in possession of Yehudah and Shomron (Judea and Samaria), and is still in possession of Har HaBayith (Temple Mount), where Jews are still not allowed to pray.
|Mahmud Abbas's Vision of Palestine|
Are people, the "international community" and Jews like, that blind? Apparently so.
The only other question remains is: "What exactly was this idiotic rouse supposed to be distracting us from?"
Oh, I don't know, maybe that ISIS and Russia are at at our doorsteps, and that news out of Jordan regarding the ISIS threat is conspicuously absent.
When Jordan falls, it was suggested that the Jordanian Hashemite Royal Family could just extend their stay in the U. S. They are currently their for the United Nations General Assembly.
