The Palestinian people’s principal problem is their own leadership


Abbas at the UN

September 27, 2018

By Abdel Bari Atwan

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ address to the UN General Assembly was disappointing. It repeated the same phrases used in his last eight speeches. Nothing new at all. The same appeals for international sympathy. Even the wording of his complaints about Israel’s failure to respect agreements was unchanged. And his declaration that the US is not an honest broker but biased towards Israel we have heard a million times before.

So it was neither strange nor surprising that the chamber was almost empty of delegates and delegation heads, and that the warm applause came mostly from the Palestinian delegation.

US President Donald Trump will not heed Abbas’ demands that he rescind his recognition of Jerusalem as capital of Israel. Nor will East Jerusalem be capital of a Palestinian state, because there will be no Palestinian state at all. Not according…

Αντιπολίτευση τσίρκο!

Η άλλη ζητάει εκλογές, επειδή η κυβέρνηση δεν έφερε την συμφωνία με τα Σκόπια, που αυτοί δεν ήθελαν να έρθει, αλλα ήθελε η κυβέρνηση και αν δεν έρθει πρέπει να πάμε σε εκλογές άσχετα αν εμεις δεν θέλαμε την συμφωνία που δεν ήρθε. Απλά και κατανοητά…

Unconvincing Abbas General Assembly Address


by Stephen Lendman ( – Home – Stephen Lendman)

In January 2005, Israel installed Mahmoud Abbas as puppet Palestinian president to serve its interests. 

He stays in charge by following orders, short of going along with Trump’s no-peace/deal of the century-peace plan, at least so far – demanding unilateral Palestinian surrender to US/Israeli demands in return for nothing. It’s that bad.

The Jewish state abolished Palestinian elections after Hamas won majority control over the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC) to become its legitimate government.

The Abbas-led PA, taking orders from Tel Aviv and Washington, has no legitimacy. He long ago sold his soul and credibility for special privileges he, his family members and cronies enjoy – benefits for enforcing apartheid rule.

Hamas political bureau leader Ismail Haniyeh earlier slammed the Abbas-headed Palestinian National Council (PLC), saying it betrays Palestinians by flagrantly “violat(ing) the unity (and rights) of our…

On the topic of the Russia-Israel-Syria affair

On the topic of the Russia-Israel-Syria affair, which has culminated in the downing of a Russian Il-20 on September 17th just off the coast of Latakia…

by Ollie Richardson for The Saker Blog

I will first start this article by saying that I have read, both intentionally and unintentionally (stumbled upon), lots and lots of opinions about this specific topic. The main bulk of these opinions recycle the usual blaming of Russia and offer suggestions for how things “should” have been done and “should” now be done. The consensus seems to be that it is Israel that is solely to blame, and it should thus be severely punished. However, even though Russia was lambasted by social media “experts” for the fact that the state of Israel still existed on September 18th (the day after the downing of the Il-20), the criticism of Moscow’s policy vis-a-vis Israel’s general airstrikes…

Trump to Netanyahu: «We Support You 100%»


Trump to Netanyahu: «We Support You 100%»

Who is owned here? Indeed a sad state of affairs for the United States of America. Wake-up your friends who are sleeping… and, yes, Trump did indeed «change history» — he will be remembered as one of the most traitours Presidents the US has ever seen.
