Since the US would reject any attempt at Palestinian statehood Abbas may as well aim for the first prize. Obama may be a bit miffed at being made to look like a hypocrite and a fool, but that's what he is, and what's the alternative? more years of Israeli-enforced poverty and misery while the West Bank is gradually colonised by Israeli squatters? I hope that that Obama has the balls to ask for the US representative to abstain, but I don't expect it. Weasels will be weasels.
