Ready for a 'state'?

In an earlier post, I reported on the 'Palestinian Authority's silence regarding last Thursday's terror attacks near Eilat, and how some people in Israel believes that this shows that they are not yet ready for a 'state.' In response, I wrote:
And if Abu Bluff issued the kind of hypocritical denouncement that Arafat used to issue, would that make them ready for a 'state'? Ridiculous. They're not ready for a 'state' because they have yet to accept the idea (and they will never accept the idea) that if they get a 'state,' it's the end of their claims against Israel. And they're not going to condemn terror, because deep down they're a bunch of terrorists just like Hamas. It's time we stopped fooling ourselves that things are otherwise.
The evidence that the 'Palestinians' are not ready for a 'state' (as if that will influence the vote in the UN next month - of course it won't!) and that the 'Palestinians' are the same terrorists and liars they have always been has gotten stronger. The 'Palestinians' are accusing Israel of provoking violence to undermine and distract attention from the 'Palestinian' effort at 'statehood' (Hat Tip: Soccer Dad).
The authority accused Israel of trying to provoke a violent reaction that might undermine Palestinian efforts to obtain recognition of a Palestinian state by the United Nations.

"These measures will not deter us or stop us from continuing on our road and just struggle to regain the legitimate national rights of our people,” Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said through a spokesman Sunday.

Chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat said Monday that the developments would not stop its plan -- opposed by Israel and the U.S. -- to seek U.N. recognition of a state located in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and Gaza.

“The government of Israel will be dreaming if it thinks that this grave escalation is going to get the Palestinian train heading to the U.N. off track,” he said.
By the way, the rest of this piece is a textbook case of media bias. Given that it was written by "Maher Abukhater in Ramallah, West Bank," I suppose we should not be too surprised.

But the fact that the 'Palestinian Authority' has the gall to make such accusations shows that nothing has changed. The blood libels (Israel poisoned Arafat, Israel poisoned the water in Gaza, Israel gave the 'Palestinians' contaminated viagra, etc.) continue. But the world wants to give them a 'state.'

What could go wrong?
