Firstly the US does not want to be bullied and if Abbas starts making
threats he will do things like dissolve the PA if the US vetoes the
Abbas ultimatum. There is also alot of prestige involved ine being the
negotiator and the US doesn’t want to give that up. They are of course
the only ones that have any influence over Israel the UN doesn’t. If the
US doesn’t veto the plan then Israel will flex its muscles and hurt the
palestinians, there is no choice otherwise it will be taken advantage
of. Israel can quite legally close its border to all palestinians,
cancel tens of thousands of palestinian work permits, place an embargo
on all palestinian companies and imports. All these things would
devastate the palestinian economy. If we let Abbas get away with this he
will be using the same tactic again when he wants the holy right of
return which no palestiiian leader can ever give up and keep their job.
An imposed deal can never work anyway because it doesn’t take into
account Israels demands so even if the Security Council pass a
resolution saying that Israel must be out by X date then if Israel can’t
get the things it wants by that date then the deadline will come and go
and Israel will still be there. Abbas has actually put himself in a
corner and if the US or Israel don’t play ball Abbas will have no choice
but to step down. Abbas ego took over his logic and he will get burned
and even if he doesn’t Israel will go out its way to hurt the
palestinians in a legal way.
