American law cuts off financing to Palestinians if they do anything like this so they could potentially lose millions from the US. As well as that like UNESCO any UN body that admits Palestinians has US funding withdrawn, poor old UNESCO have had to cancel a whole load of projects for admitting palestinans. Israel will also wave a bugger stik than its letting on right now but it will do things in a more subtle way so the international community don't notice. Fewer work permits issued so increased unemployment, withholding tax money, increase in checkpoints, increase in settlements, giving Israel Electric permission to cut them off as a result of years of unpaid bills and the government not let thn do anything to get the money owed. Just generaly making them hurt in lots of small and discreet ways. By the time the Israeli and American sticks have been wilded Abbas will be saying to himself why was I so stupid?
