The end of the Oslo accords?

The 'Palestinians' are threatening that the Oslo accords will officially cease to exist if their upgraded status passes the United Nations.
The Oslo Accords between the PLO and Israel will cease to exist the day after the UN votes in favor of upgrading the status of a Palestinian state to non-member, Abbas Zaki, member of the Fatah Central Committee, was quoted Thursday as saying.


Zaki said that once the status of a Palestinian state is upgraded, the Palestinians would be able to pursue Israel for "war crimes" in the International Criminal Court.

"Once we become a recognized state, we will go to all UN agencies to force the international community to take legal action against Israel," Zaki told the London-based Al-Quds Al-Arabi newspaper.

He said that after the UN votes in favor of the PA request, "the case of the Oslo Accords and the Palestinian Authority will be closed. We will have a state parliament and not a Palestinian Legislative Council." Zaki denied that some Arab countries have been exerting pressure on the PA leadership to refrain from the statehood bid.

"Until this moment, no one has dared to ask us not to go to the UN," he stressed. "We have no other choice. Some European countries, like Britain, have only asked us to delay the statehood bid for three months. But we are determined to go to the UN General Assembly this month."

Saleh Ra'fat, member of the PLO Executive Committee, warned that the PA leadership would abrogate economic and security agreements with Israel if the Israeli government imposed sanctions on the Palestinians in response to the statehood bid.

"The Palestinian leadership will respond if the Israeli government carries out its threats against the Palestinian Authority," Ra'fat told the Jerusalem-based Al-Quds daily.

He said that the PA would consider itself free of all its commitments under the agreements signed with Israel, including economic and security obligations.

Ra'fat said that if Israel decides to withhold tax revenues belonging to the PA, the Palestinians will in response call for boycotting all Israeli goods.

He also threatened to "escalate popular resistance against Israel." 
What could go wrong?

So "Agree to my blackmail or we'll murder your children" is an accredited tool of international relations entirely acceptable to the west now is it? Good to know. At least we agree what 'peace' on the far left has always truly meant.

Of course Israel will still be expected to provide them with water and electricity collect their taxes and use Israeli ports for imports and exports. Disney World has more attributes of a state.
