    Or Abbas is welcoming the extermination of his Nation. The undeniable situation is this. 1. Unless the USA gives recognition and protection to Palestine then Palestine is doomed. 2. Immediately after the declaration of Palestinian independence Settlers will attack Palestinians. 3. The attack upon Palestinians will be accompanied by demands that Israel come to the aid of the Settlers. 4. Israel will come to the aid of the Settlers. 5. Freed from any restraint by the Second Geneva Convention, Israel will seek to 'save' the Settlers by crushing all resistance by Palestine and pushing Palestinians across neighboring borders. I can not see any possibility of any other outcome UNLESS the USA is willing to declare that it recognizes Palestine and will secure it's borders. And I cannot see Obama destroying his chances of reelection to pursue that goal. Mr. Abbas would pursue the destruction of any hope for Palestine by pursuing a declaration of independence.
