PA Resigns Chair of Arab League

I've Been Thinking:
The Palestinians were scheduled to chair the Arab League meetings for the next 6 months.
They resigned the chairmanship.
The Palestinians failed to convince the Arab League to condemn the UAE and Bahrain for committing to peace treaties with Israel.
They said that the treaties were an abandonment of the long-held agreement among Arab countries not to recognize Israel.
Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki told a news conference in the West Bank city of Ramallah that they were resigning the chairmanship. He said: “Palestine has decided to concede its right to chair the League’s council (of foreign ministers) at its current session. There is no honor in seeing Arabs rush towards normalization during its presidency.”
Maliki then read from a letter he sent to Arab League Secretary General Ahmed Aboul Gheit informing him of the Palestinian move and criticizing the UAE and Bahrain, both Gulf Arab nations.
He said that peace deals with Israel "created a deep crisis in the Arab League."
This is a typical Palestinian response. They are hurting themselves in the hope that by hurting themselves, people will take notice.
