In some circles, it could be interpreted as an assault on one's intelligence for an Israeli (or supporter) to blame Abbas as an obstructionist to peace when Israel has occupied Palestinian territory for 42 years, refused to withdraw from those territories in violation of international law and UN resolutions, and built on those territories and annexed Jerusalem in violation of UN resolutions and the 4th Geneva Convention and therefore is in commission of a war crime. The same Israel that is violating human rights and in violation of article 33 of the 4th Geneva Convention for blockading Gaza and there also in commission of a war crime for collective punishment of a civilian population. What in the world could Abbas do to compete with that record of hostility and obstructionism? The reason for the PLO existence is to govern an independent sovereign State of Palestine in the occupied territory: The same role the Israeli govt will have for the rest of Palestine.
