Abbas Helps Israeli “Divide and Kill” Policy

Posted by terres on October 26, 2009

Ever wondered why Yasser Arafat wasn’t assassinated by Israelis?

First and foremost, Arafat was a businessman. Mahmoud Abbas, also known as Abu Mazen, co-founded the Fatah group with Yasser Arafat. He is probably no less treacherous to his people than Arafat.

As for the Goldstone’s UN report [despite this blog’s objection to the pitch, ] it has turned into a disastrous farce  for the Palestinian Authority and its president, Mahmoud Abbas.

“Palestinians were outraged after the authority last week, under Israeli and US pressure, abruptly halted its drive to speed the report … ” BBC reported.

The PA had initially asked the UN human rights council to refer the matter to the  Security Council, “which could in theory ask the International Criminal Court to open a war crimes prosecution.”

On the day of the vote, however, the PA announced they would support a postponement of discussions until March, 2010.

Various factions protested  in Ramallah denouncing the decision.

John Pilger, writing about president Obama’s role in the affair, said: “In colluding with the only nuclear-armed power in the Middle East, he bribed the Palestinian Authority to suppress a UN judgment that Israel had committed crimes against humanity in its assault on Gaza – crimes made possible with US weapons whose shipment Obama secretly approved before his inauguration.”

Thanks to Abbas, Israel bought another installment of time, at least 6 months possibly a year or more, before any more discussion could even begin. Meanwhile they are free to murder, kill and cause mayhem at will.
