Here’s Your Keffiyeh, What’s Your Hurry?

No offense meant to Mahmoud Abbas. I’m sure he’s expert at making balloon animals and mimicking bird calls—when he’s not denying the Holocaust—but just [bleeping] quit already.

No one wants to hear you crying like a little girl:

Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas threatened on Thursday that he will disband the PA unless there is Israeli movement toward renewing peace talks after Israel’s elections on January 22, AFP reported.

Abbas said that if such a situation arises he will hand full responsibility for Judea and Samaria to the Israeli government.

“If there is no progress even after the election I will take the phone and call (Prime Minister Binyamin) Netanyahu,” AFP quoted Abbas as having said during an interview with the Haaretz daily.

“I’ll tell him…Sit in the chair here instead of me, take the keys, and you will be responsible for the Palestinian Authority.”

“Once the new government in Israel is in place, Netanyahu will have to decide — yes or no,” Abbas told the newspaper.

Fine! Deal! Sold! Where do we sign?

Like I said, everyone’s tired of your act:

Yisrael Beiteinu head Avigdor Lieberman, until recently the Foreign Minister, reacted with joy Friday as Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas threatened to quit if negotiations do not resume. Abbas has refused to negotiate in absence of several Israeli concessions, including a complete freeze on construction east of the 1949 armistice line.

According to Lieberman, Israel “can’t wait” for Abbas to follow through on his threat.

“We congratulate Abu Mazen [Abbas] for reaching the correct conclusion, that only his leave from the PA leadership will allow the diplomatic process to resume,” Lieberman said.

“We anxiously await the official announcement from the Muqata regarding his retirement,” he added. “There are many alternatives among the Palestinians with whom we could hold a diplomatic dialog.”

You had me until the last part, Avigdor. You know better than anyone that there’s nobody among the Palestinian leadership remotely interested in peace.

Just leave the keys on your way out, Mahmoud, and don’t let the door hit you in the a**.
