Palestinian leader losses it after being confronted on his intransigence
...He seems frustrated by his impotence and is resorting to self-defeating rage. He is making absurd claims about the history of the area. By siding with the Iranians he has alienated what support he might have received from the Arab world at a time when they no longer really control the price of oil.
To recap. Abbas wants the White House destroyed, he says he will respond to Nikki Haley with the “heel of a shoe,” he’s told the single biggest source of funding for the Palestinian Authority (that would be the United States) to FOAD, he told the Arab world to piss off, he rewrote the history of the region, proclaimed the Oslo accords dead, and announced he would continue paying pensions to the families of terrorists.
This is the act of a desperate and pathetic little man. He’s used intransigence and violence as his primary negotiating tools and now he’s finding his people are increasingly unwilling to die so Abbas and his cronies can sock away billions of UN dollars in Swiss bank accounts. The Arab world has bigger fish to fry, namely Iranian expansionism, and doesn’t have time for his shenanigans where their own survival is at risk.
