Another blow against Israel is planned for September 22nd, the day the Arabs go to the U.N. and will issue a request with their Lebanese friend, the President of the Security Council, about getting accepted into the U.N. This is also the day scheduled as the 10th year anniversary commemoration of the Durban conference at the UN in New York.
The Durban conferences were designed to fight racism, but the Arabs turned it around to fight against Israel ever since the first 2001 Durban World conference. It had turned into an anti-Semitic and anti-Israel hate fest, instead, doing just what they were supposed to fight against.
Many countries pulled out and did not attend the next conferences because of this. This event will just happen to coincide with the Palestinian attempt at becoming a state in violation of the peace negotiation process. This certainly looks like a connection between the international campaign to deligitimize Israel while confirming statehood to Palestine.
How can Palestine recognize Israel when they plan to replace the Jewish state? They are also planning on kicking out all the Jews who live in East Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria. Abbas doesn't hide this fact about his vision of his state at all. He was very adamant about it to a delegation of Democratic members of Congress who met with him August 11th. It will be an ethnically cleansed Palestine as he will evict more than a half a million Jews. All the while, Israel has over a million Arabs living in Israel as citizens who have all the rights as the Jews with one exception. They don't have to serve in the army unless they want to. They are accepted, serve in the Knesset, and Israel is sensitive to their feelings as well. Yet they were demonized in the UN's corrupted Durban conferences.
