    once a settlement is forced on it. Think twice, Mr Abbas about standing alone face to face with Hamas without any Israeli assistance. You know, Mr Abbas, that at the moment Israel has your back. Stab Israel in the back, Mr. Abbas, and we'll see how fast any of your UN supporters will come to your aid militarily as Hamas over-runs your new state. Think about whose airports and sea ports you will not have privilege to use. Think about not having your own currency, and you can print all you'd like, but it will be worthless on the international market. What will you do for the next five years without a viable currency? Think about a totally sealed boarder between your new state and Israel. Think, Mr. Abbas how much the East Bank tribes despise you. Think about how much the Jordanians want nothing to do with you. Abdullah is in trouble. You have alot to think about, Mr. Abbas.
