"And yet I do think he [Abbas] should do it [declase the Palestinian State] because he will have the entire world on his side and that is a card that Israel cannot trump." If Abbas does declare Palestine statehood, as Israel did in 1948, it will mean the worst war yet in the Middle East. But it will no longer be a war betweeen a state and an occupied but stateless people. This time it will be a war between two legitimate and sovereign states. Yet, I have to agree with Macabee. Horrible as the prospect of such a war may be, this is a stand that will have to be taken at some time if Israel's aggression is to be checked and Palestine's legitimacy recognized by its worldwide supporters. If that is the way it must be then cry Havoc! and let loose the dogs of war! Free Palestine!
