Abbas certainly has reason to be unhappy with the US which, being captive of AIPAC, cannot pressure Israel to move towards peace. Indeed, the US even torpedos European attempts through the Quartet to initiate peace moves that might work, such as the French initiative. But Abbas has a winning solution of his own: pursue an independent Palestine Resolution in the UN. Hopefully, the stigma of Apartheid and the developing international isolation will bring Israelis to their senses and have them replace the right-wing by more moderate leaders who will negotiate peace with the PA. This INDIRECT consequence is something Obama does not understand but is also powerless to stop, and it is the only way some positive progress will be made for the Palestinians. It is in Abbas' hands and he should keep moving on this road.
