Abbas is a lot brighter than Bibi or Obama. He rightly concluded that direct talks are a waste of time. True, going to the UN may not yield much, but given the very bad hans he has been dealt by us and by the Americans he has little to lose. And, if this fails, expect him to play the doomsday card...giving us back the keys and setting in motion the bi-national state. Dumb us!
