The problem for Abbas’ threat, however, is that for Abbas’ threat of rescinding the PA-Israel Peace Agreements to mean anything, the PA would have had to have first complied with the Peace agreements to begin with. Abbas’ threat to rescind “agreements” that the PA never abided by to begin with is fake threat. Fake PA compliance to begin with equals a fake PA threat of rescinding compliance to end with.
And one of the PA’s most important obligations that the PA has faked compliance with is its obligation to have removed the ugly and virulently anti-Israel clauses of the PLO Charter that was last amended in 1968. And to add to the fake mix, leave it to the New York Times to write fake stories claiming the PLO changed its ugly Israel-hating charter.
In sum, a fake PLO Charter change wrapped in several fake NYT articles equals a fake Palestinian threat to rescind its Oslo agreements.
Clause 1 of the Resolution voted on states that the PNC decides “amending the Palestinian National Charter and cancelling the Charter’s articles opposing the exchanged letters between the PLO and the Israeli Government on September 9th and 10th, 1993.
Clause 2 of the resolution states that a legal committee would be formed to draft a new Charter. The committee was never formed. Since, the PLO committee to change the PLO charter was never formed, or offered specific changes that were properly voted on no change in the PLO Charter has occurred. The PLO simply staged a fake PLO charter change.
The first false NYT false story was published on April 25, 1996 with the headline and the portion of the article stated, "PLO Ends Call for Destruction of Jewish State": "Bowing to the insistent demands of Yasir Arafat, the main assembly of the Palestine Liberation Organization voted today to revoke the clauses in its 32-year-old charter that called for an armed struggle to destroy the Jewish state. . .". This was fake NYT story number one.
One would have thought that the New York Times having clearly already once erroneously reported in 1996 article that the “PLO Ends Call for Destruction of Israel” in its first story would have related in the second 1998 article “Palestinians Drop Call for Israel’s Destruction” that it got it completely wrong the first time. But not only did the New York Times omit that important fact, but the New York Times also falsely reported for a second time the same fake PLO charter change.
Abbas’ threats of non-compliance with the Oslo agreements are as empty as the PA’s compliance with those very agreements. Just don't ask the New York Times.
