The so called peace negotiation sponsored by Mr. Obama is a comi-tragedy. Abbas and his PA cronies have the legitimacy of the Arab League which is an organization of mostly undemocratic and hardly respected Arab regimes. That organization took the extraordinary decision tyo give Mr. Abbas an extension for his mandate asthe PA chief. It is all machinations that make mockery of rules of law. Furthermore, any agreement that is agreed by Israel would not have any real values even heavily suppooted by all the might of western powers. Everyone is after something in this farce. Abbas and co. are basically for continuity and money of donors. Israel and the West wants someone to sign a paper which liquidate all Palestinian rights once and for all. Nothing would really come out of this flagrant deception.
