Calling all journalists

From YNET:

Abbas threatens to dismantle Palestinian Authority
PA president’s proposal to declare West Bank under occupation would annul Oslo Accords, leave Israel with full responsibility over Palestinians.

The era of the two-state solution may soon be rocked by a decision that could signal its demise. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is mulling the merits of a proposal to dismantle the Palestinian Authority, Yedioth Ahronoth reported Sunday morning.

Palestinian sources confirm that the government in Ramallah was considering the unprecedented move. Senior sources in the IDF’s Central Command, who recently met with the heads of the Palestinian security services confirmed their West Bank counterparts were sincerely debating dismantling and disarming the PA’s forces.

I read that and thought, he’s done this before. This is not new. Why isn’t this pointed out? Am I going mad?

Minutes of browsing, courtesy of the irreplaceable Elder of Ziyon, produced the following. Abbas made the same threat in

  • December 2012
  • December 2010
  • November 2009
  • September 2008
  • July 2008
  • June 2007

Where are the real journalists who do things like fact checking?

As for the threat, isn’t this the same PA that has just applied to join several international bodies? How stupid does that make him look if he meant it?

This threat is a nonsense – like much of Abbas posturing – so when will somebody call him on it?
