Israel says that if the Palestinian Authority seeks embarrassing it internationally by using Goldestone Report, then there will be no point in negotiating with Mr Abbas and keeping him as a political partner. Israeli in this argument reflects its real relationship with the PA; the latter is not a side that represents the Palestinians;it is a contracted occupation-services agency that is payed by Israel (in the form of employees' salaries and access to tax revenues and international aids). If the PA violates any of the contact articles, Israel will have the right to sack it.
