It would appear that Mahmoud Abbas, Chairman of the Palestinian Authority (PA) is a little too frisky over the recent U.N. decision to grant Palestine ‘nonmember observer status’ as a state.
PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas Sunday promised someday the PA flag would fly over “Jerusalem, eternal capital of the state of Palestine.”
Thousands of people greeted Abbas rapturously upon his return from the United Nations, where the General Assembly granted the PLO, representing the PA, upgraded status as a nonmember observer state.
“Raise your heads high, because you are Palestinians!” Abbas told the joyous crowd, waving PA flags in the PA capital of Ramallah, located in Samaria.
“You have proof that you are stronger than the occupation, because you are Palestinians… stronger than the settlements, because you are Palestinians.
Lost on Abbas is that while he was basking in the dream that Jerusalem belongs to Palestine, Israel was hard at work, approving the construction of 3000 homes in Jerusalem. Palestinians love living in denial.
Sounds like Mahmoud may have been having a Baghdad Bob moment.
For some reason, this clip from Newt Gingrich just seems salient at the moment:
