Israel's GDP is around $250 billion per year. American military support is around 1% of that, The combined GDP of the West Bank and Gaza together is around $4 billion per year American humanitarian support is around 25% of that figure ($1 billion) Does Abbas REALLY want to piss off America? Does Arab pride spread THAT far? I assume that, at some point, sanity and pragmatism will prevail. But - you know, the "never missing an opportunity.....etc." is so ingrained in the Palestinian psyche - who knows???
