Mahmoud Abbas Threatens To Abrogate Agreements He Never Kept Anyway - by PreOccupied Territory (Satire)

“Oh, I think he means it this time,” insisted Haaretz columnist Gidon Levy. “He’s an honest man, always lives up to his commitments. If he says he’s going to revoke the Oslo Accords, we better believe him and do as he says. Giving into such pressure has never been a bad idea.”

Analysts differ on whether this eighty-fifth threat will prove as effective as the previous eighty-four.

MuqataaRamallah, June 16 – This de facto Palestinian capital city once again felt political and diplomatic waves after the Palestinian Authority president warned for the eighty-fifth time in fifteen years that if Israel continues to refuse to hand over control of territory that was never before under autonomous Palestinian Arab rule, he will revoke the accords that established Palestinian self-rule, accords to which his administration and the one before it did not adhere in the first place.

Mahmoud Abbas threatened again Tuesday to abrogate the Palestine Liberation Organization’s 1993 agreements with Israel that provided for Palestinian governmental autonomy in certain majority-Palestinian areas of territory Israel took from Jordanian occupation in 1967.
