The takeover is complete. This is as outrageous as it is ridiculous. When he calls for an end to “terrorism,” Abbas means an end to Israeli defensive measures. And an “international protection force” means he wants aid in his jihad to destroy Israel.
How can “Palestine” lead the largest bloc of United Nation member states when it isn’t even a country? Nor does it have anything to contribute: it has no industry, no production of anything other than genocidal Jew-hatred and jihad violence. This is yet another example of how the UN is no longer committed to anything but condemning and harassing Israel. And the UN General Assembly held a special vote to temporarily elevate the Palestinians’ status at the UN, of course. There isn’t any depth of appeasement or accommodation of pro-jihad, pro-sharia forces to which the UN will not sink.
“Abbas calls for end to terrorism as he takes over largest U.N. bloc,” by Khaled Abu Toameh and Tovah Lazaroff, Jerusalem Post, January 15, 2019:
In New York, Abbas said the United Nations must provide the Palestinians with an international protection force, he remarked on Monday.
The global community must band together to combat terrorism, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said on Tuesday as he took over the chairmanship of the United Nations Group of 77 and China, the organization’s largest bloc of member states.
He broke the proceedings at UN headquarters in New York to condemn terrorism after hearing during the meeting that gunmen blasted their way into a hotel and office complex in the Kenyan capital on Tuesday, killing at least seven.
The attack occurred as Abbas was in the middle of leading his meeting as chairman of the Group of 77 in New York.
“Terrorism takes place worldwide on a daily basis. It is an epidemic and I therefore call on all countries of the world to cooperate, to put an end to terrorism, to uproot it,” Abbas said.
“The state of Palestine has adopted 83 protocols with 83 countries throughout the world to put an end to this scourge and to fight against terrorism, and I call on all states to work with us to combat terrorism,” he said.
But he made no mention of Palestinian terror attacks against Israelis, nor did he take responsibility for them….
