The Palestinians and the World Do Not Need Another Corrupt, Failed Terrorist Arab State

(Gatestone Institute) Khaled Abu Toameh - The Palestinian Authority (PA) leadership has decided to renew its bid to gain full membership in the UN. However, neither the PA leadership nor the Palestinian people is ready for statehood. And the responsibility for that lies squarely with the failed Palestinian leaders. The Palestinian UN bid comes at a time when the PA appears to be losing control over some parts of the West Bank, where gunmen belonging to several groups have replaced the Palestinian security forces. PA President Mahmoud Abbas is well aware that the gunmen are viewed by the Palestinian public as heroes because of their attacks against Israelis. Abbas himself has long been praising and glorifying Palestinians who carry out terrorist attacks against Israel. Does anyone seriously think that Abbas or any other Palestinian leader would deploy troops along a border with Israel to stop terrorist attacks? Does anyone seriously think that Abbas would survive for one day if Israel's security forces were to leave the West Bank? Public opinion polls indicate that a majority of Palestinians prefer Hamas to Abbas and his corrupt Fatah faction.
