    Abbas has made clear from the beginning that UN recognition does not preclude the need for negotiations. Israel, on the other hand, is out to stop UN recognition because it would grant the Palestinians a status - within those negotiations - which it has never before had, which would effectively put an end to Israel's ability to run roughshod over them and to continue its indefinite forestalling of a final status agreement. And the US, by essentially blackmailing the PA, is not only undermining the chances of creating the circumstance in which Israel will be compelled to reach an agreement, but its also increasing the chances of a fresh outbreak of violence! And the PA? It WILL fold! Abbas has hinted on several occasions that without a two-state solution anytime soon, THAT is the plan!
