Abbas UN Speech 'Defamatory, Venomous': Israel

AFP - Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas's speech before the General Assembly ahead of its vote on upgrading Palestinian UN status was "defamatory and venomous," Israel charged on Thursday.

"The world watched a defamatory and venomous speech that was full of mendacious propaganda against the IDF (army) and the citizens of Israel," said a statement issued by the office of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

1. Wait until Palestine joins the International Criminal Court.

That's what the Israelis are afraid of.

4. That cuts both ways

as a "nation" Palestine is now equally liable for their actions. Those rocket attacks from Gaza are a much more serious issue.

As a practical matter, the ICC doesn't have the power to drag either Israel or Palestine into court against their will.

2. Blah, blah, blah.

Abbas could have read a comic book out loud and received exactly the same criticism from the same quarters.
