Breaking Israel News Op-Ed, Laura Densmore: “Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has hatched a plan.
He is going to New York City April 21-23 to be present for a high level signing ceremony on a climate change agreement. While he is there, he has another highly charged document that he plans to pull out of his pocket and bring forward to the UN Security Council for their consideration and for a vote
What does the statement of Sept 21, 2010 say? That all final status terms for Palestinian land and boundaries would be settled within ONE year. So, if this Israel Settlements Resolution gets voted on and passed through the UN Security Council during Passover of 2016, that would set a timeline out to Passover, April 2017 for “final status” of land and defined boundaries for a Palestinian state.
I don’t think Abbas was alone in hatching his plan.”
Opinion: The writer lays out a possible 5 step plan:
- Step 1: The Bait. To entice the Palestinians to come back to the table and participate in the Summer Peace Conference that France is hosting.
Step 2: The Vote. Abbas brings this draft settlement resolution to the UN Security council in New York on April 21-23 (Passover weekend). They vote on it, the US does NOT veto it, and the resolution passes.
Step 3: The Table of Negotiations. A summer peace conference hosted by France is scheduled/planned.
Step 4: Obama’s Cover to Blame Israel. Obama will then be able to say, “Israel is the problem, Israel won’t come to the table.
Step 5: Palestinian State declared Through UN Security Council: The UN Security Council does a vote, possibly between November 2016 and January 2017, during Obama’s final months as President.
The Obama policy of vetoing a forced Palestinian state in favor of the two parties working out their differences may be coming to an end.
On Friday April 22, only hours before the start of Passover, the UN Security Council will vote. What will the president do?
