Opinion: The Palestinian Campaign to Delegitimize Israel

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas

Although a new series of negotiations have started between the Palestinian Authority and Israel, Palestinians are still trying to out-maneuver Israel in the international arena. Though last year’s attempt to gain full UN membership for a sovereign state of Palestine failed, Abbas is now regrouping, visiting countries that may support the bid and trying new strategies such as the Palestinian reconciliation. “The message is simple: If the Israelis don’t give the PLO what it wants, it could join hands with Hamas, which repeatedly refuses to renounce “armed resistance,” making it virtually impossible for Israel to achieve the peace that it craves.”
