PA warns violence could follow stymied UN bid

A UN Security Council subcommittee is expected to report Friday that the PA does not have the nine votes it needs to assure the councils approval of its request for full UN membership.

According to the subcommittee, at least seven of the bodys 15 members wont vote in support of the measure. Among them are the US, which will oppose it, and the United Kingdom and France, which will abstain.
The PAs inability to achieve this support weakens its president, Mahmoud Abbas.

Another official told the Post that Abbas was facing growing demands from Palestinians to dissolve the PA and throw the keys back to Israel so it would become responsible for running the Palestinians affairs.

The official said Abbas was planning to consult with a number of Arab leaders before making any decision that could have serious implications for the whole region. Other officials have been talking about the need to end the Fatah-Hamas dispute and form a unity government in light of the statehood plans failure.

Erekat reiterated the PAs refusal to resume direct peace negotiations with Israel unless the government halted all settlement construction in the West Bank and east Jerusalem and accepted the 1967 borders as the basis for a two-state solution.

Erekat also called upon the Quartet members the US, EU, UN and Russia to put pressure on Israel to release Palestinian prisoners, especially those who were imprisoned before the Oslo Accords were signed in 1993.

1. Palestinian bid
Palestinians are in a lose lose situation as long as the US remains the broker.
They will NEVEr have a state with the US as the middle man,never did,and never will.
By the time Israel decides to have peace,because the US is only going to pay lip service as usual and do nothing but declare strong worded statement about Israel settlement building not helping the peace process,then there will not be any land left for Palestinians state,thats when Israel will decide they really want to get serious.
They have the get the USA out of the middle

2. So you believe that the PA should resolve their differences through armed conflict?
The US, UN, and the Arab League should step aside. Let Israel and the arab population address their differences. However, constant UN meddling has resulted in nothing but continued violence.
