In the wake of President Mahmoud Abbas address to UN, a voice of reality from amongst the vitriolic responses.

 Israel’s criticism of Abbas’ speech is the rhetoric of despair

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas addresses UN General Assembly

One Israeli newspaper at least is prepared to think the unthinkable and speak the unspeakable truth, that  Israel and the Israeli leadership are wrong.

"The government is now grasping at Abbas’ statements as if it were grasping at a life raft. But leaning on Abbas’ speech reflects nothing but fear and weak leadership. Israel has neither an answer nor a strategy for the diplomatic elements in Abbas’ address."

The longer that Israel resists the inevitable establishment of a Palestinian State, based on the 1967 borders, then the more they will become isolated and marginalised around the world.
