PA Threatens 'Significant Steps' Over Israeli Sanctions
Arutz Sheva ^ | 4/11/11 | Elad Benari

Posted on 11/03/2011 4:27:37 PM PDT by Eleutheria5

Palestinian Authority Spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeineh said on Thursday that the PA is considering taking “significant steps” in response to Israel’s decision to accelerate the construction of 2,000 homes in east Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria.

Abu Rudeineh, who was interviewed on BBC Radio, said the PA will soon “change the Middle East” but would not provide additional details.

Meanwhile, the PA’s representative in the United Nations, Riyad Mansour, has asked the UN Security Council to take action against Israel, saying the Israeli government in Jerusalem is “illegally stealing” the tax money it is supposed to transfer to the PA.

Mansour warned that unless Israel immediately ceases its actions, the already fragile situation in the region could further deteriorate.

The Israeli decision to sanction the PA with the construction and freezing of taxes came after the PA was admitted as a 'full-member state' to UNESCO earlier this week.

The PA’s foreign affairs minister, Riyad al-Maliki, told reporters in Ramallah on Thursday that the PLO will not apply to join any more international organizations but will focus on full membership of the United Nations, which is under consideration by the Security Council.

Oh, gee whiz, Bibi, Avigdor. Tiptoe through the tulips, then. We wouldn't want the Palis to go from threatening more kidnappings and murders to committing actually them, while simultaneously applying to the UN Security Council for admission. That might cause their petition to be granted./sarc, except for last sentence.

"By a margin of nearly five to one, Americans oppose the Bush administration's demand to halt all further Jewish construction in Judea-Samaria (the West Bank) and Gaza . . . The poll, carried out by John McLaughlin & Associates, surveyed a scientific sample of 1,000 American adults on May 21, 2003.

The PA cannot survive without handouts and ‘reparations’. How much does the US dole out to them and their supporters/bundlers? /rhetorical

Let me guess - they're going to try bathing more often than once a month?
