Abu Mazen disses Obama
What's the difference between 'moderate
Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen
and Barack Hussein Obama? One is a two-bit dictator to whom no one listens, and who has overstayed his welcome, and the other is the Chairman of the 'Palestinian Authority.' Abu Mazen proved on Monday that even he doesn't listen to Barack Hussein Obama
A spokesman for Palestinian President Mahmoud
Abbas says the Palestinians will proceed with asking the UN General
Assembly to recognize a Palestinian state, despite a personal call from
US President Barack Obama to abandon the bid.
Nabil Abu Rudeineh said Abbas had a long phone conversation with Obama Sunday evening.
According to Rudeineh, the US president “expresses his opposition to this step,” but Abbas replied that he would carry on.
In Washington, the White House press office
said that Obama “reiterated the United States’ opposition to unilateral
efforts at the United Nations.”
Obama also “reaffirmed his commitment to
Middle East peace and his strong support for direct negotiations between
Israel and the Palestinians” for a peace accord, the White House said.
I'm surprised Obama bothered. No one asked him to case a veto in the Security Council this time.
