Abbas Calling Trump's Bluff
By Micah Halpern

I've Been Thinking:
Jared Kushner, in conjunction with the the Trump White House, is starting a campaign to prop up and promote their deal of the century.
But at the same time Abbas, the President of the Palestinian Authority, has embarked on his own campaign.
Abbas has called a meeting of the Palestinian Central Council to be held on May 15th in Ramallah.
The Council will discuss rescinding recognition of Israel and no longer engaging in security or any other interactions and exchanges with Israel.
They will discuss separating from Israel and the US and putting forth all requests to Europe. The most important appeal they will make will be for statehood and recognition.
Abbas is telling the US and Kushner and Trump we do not want your deal, we want a state. And Europe will recognize us. They are saying we the Palestinians do not need your support or your signing off on what we are getting form Russia the EU and even from Iran. Gone are the days that the United States can dictate to us.
We will soon know if the Palestinians emerge successful in their campaign and if they have outsmarted the United States.
