Surely no one takes the following comment as being in good faith. The "Palestinians" have never wanted land or peace, only the destruction of Israel. They sense they have won, since the WON is running the U.S. There is "ONE" who is not controlled by them or the WON.

Two administration officials said that Mr. Abbas had indicated as recently as last week that he would forgo a U.N. vote in favor of the prospect of real talks. But a senior Palestinian official, Nabil Shaath, angrily dismissed the American proposal now being circulated as inadequate and said a vote would go ahead regardless.

''Whoever wrote this thought we are so weak that we cannot even wiggle, or that we are stupid,'' he said in a telephone interview from the Palestinian capital in the West Bank, Ramallah. He added, ''Whatever is to be offered, it is too late.''

In a flurry of telephone calls from the Oval Office, he reached out to leaders in the region and vowed to engage immediately in pursuit of a permanent Arab-Israeli settlement.

The spokesman for President Abbas revealed that Mr Obama had told the Palestinian leader that their conversation was his first with a foreign statesman since taking office.
