'Palestinians' drop UN agency bids

Labels: » » » »
(Israel Matzav) For now, the 'Palestinian Authority' has suspended its bids to join 16 UN agencies as a full member.
The Palestinian foreign minister stressed that the PA's decision to shelve its general membership bids would enable it to focus its efforts on the UN Security Council bid and the drive to become a full member at the UN.
UNESCO's acceptance, he said, constitutes a positive push for the PA's diplomatic efforts in the UN. The PLO first applied to UNESCO in 1989.
Turning his attention to the nearing UN Security Council vote, al-Malki said that if the Palestinians fail to get the necessary votes, or in case the US vetoes a favorable vote – as it said it would do – the Palestinians would pursue other avenues of acceptance into the United Nations.
"An observer status is no longer enough," he explained.
The Palestinian foreign minister's statement followed an admonition by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, who said that the Palestinian efforts to join other United Nations agencies were "not beneficial for Palestine and not beneficial for anybody."
Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fl) is onto something.
it's too late. Oslo has already been voided. Time to make Judea and Samaria part of Israel.
