WAIT FOR WHAT'S YOURS UNTIL I TELL YOU IT'S OKAY?:

PA Pursuing Statehood Bid No Matter What (Gavriel Queenann, 6/25/11, Israel news)

The Palestinian Authority will seek United Nations recognition for statehood in September even if peace negotiations with Israel are under way, a senior PA diplomat said Thursday.

Riyad Mansour, the PA envoy to the United Nations, said the PA was simultaneously pursuing three independent tracks: restarting negotiations, building institutions for an independent state, and gaining recognition for statehood.

“If we succeed in opening the door for negotiations, we’re not going to stop from attaining what belongs to us as Palestinians in this General Assembly starting on September 20,” Mansour insisted.


To negotiate with them at all; is to recognize them as a nation.
