PA bid: Israel threatens to topple Abbas

(ynetnews.com)A Foreign Ministry draft position paper states that should the Palestinian Authority receive the status of a non-member state at the United Nations, the only viable option would be “to overthrow Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.” The paper, drafted ahead of the Palestinians’ November 29 UN bid, said that “a soft response would be tantamount to an Israeli admission that it cannot handle the challenge.”

The document further reveals that Abbas has serious concerns that he will meet the same fate as Libyan President Muammar Gaddafi, former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and ousted Tunisian leader Zine al-Abedine Ben Ali.

“In addition, the Saudis are accusing him of lack of efficiency and corruption,” the paper said.

“Several Gulf states are also angry with Abbas for his removal of Mohammed Dahlan who is trying to convince Arab leaders that Abu Mazen is no longer relevant. As a result he has lost the support of important patrons in the Arab world.”
