Crazy POV of the PA

I've Been Thinking:
Saeb Erekat the Secretary of the PLO Executive Committee announced on Sunday that Israel is a security threat to the region.
On Twitter Erekat wrote:
Erekat is repeating the very same tropes from 20 years ago. That the Middle East is about to explode because of Israel and their relationship with the Palestinians.
It should be clear that most of the leaders in the Middle East have lost patience with the Palestinians. And over the past year Palestinian leadership has once again tried to provoke the Arab masses into a frenzy because of some Israeli policy or another - even policies of safety and security at the Temple Mt did not cause mayhem. (Remember the Metal detectors).
Pundits thought that the Friday protests at the Gaza border would trigger mass riots around the Arab world. They did not. Many worried that every Friday during the month of Ramadan that there would be huge riots in Jerusalem which would cascade to violence around the world.
But these events were practically irrelevant and even if a small ripple was felt after some event - each blow back was temporary.
