"Nearing the end of my 7th year in a 4 year term as President of the PA, I would like for the UN to give recognition to the State of Palestine. We have no constitution, and no elected government with no elections scheduled. A variety of political/militant/terrorist groups have signed an agreement that we will share power with each other bypassing the need to obtain the consent of the governed. We have not implemented this non-democratic edict because our factions are so wildly antithetical to each other, we can't agree on a caretaker government. In the event that our main armed, UN-recognized as terrorist group rivals allow a free and fair election on their half of Palestine, there's no clear authority given to each of the elected offices in our Basic Law. Also, if elections are held, there's a very strong possibility that the aforementioned party will win a substantial role, if not an out-right majority (like in our last elections) and therefore we will as a political program be dedicated to the irradiation of a UN member state and the subjugation of all Jews and Christians in the Holy Land as per Hamas' Charter. I thank you for your support of our State."
