The Times of Israel: “The office of Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas has reportedly informed Israel it intends to begin issuing “State of Palestine” passports to West Bank residents.
Earlier this week, PA Foreign Minister Riyad al-Malki said Palestinians were hoping that US President Barack Obama, freed of reelection concerns, would break with American protocol and refrain from vetoing it this time around.
“There are indications that President Barack Obama may try to put a basis for a new era regarding the Palestinian-Israeli issue before leaving the White House after his achievements in Iran and Cuba,” Malki said. “Thus the US administration may surprise Israel by voting in favor of a Palestinian resolution or at least not to use the veto against it.”
Opinion: All eyes will be on the vote expected April 22, which, thanks to a heads-up from our reader DC, is also the start of Passover.
Isn’t it heart warming how our president panders to an illegitimate leader of a made up people?
