The PA president want a “Palestinian state”, but accuse the Hamas of seeking to build an Islamic emirate.
This is what the Palestinian Authority President Abu Mazen, alias Mahmoud Abbas said on Saturday:
“We are going to the UN to say that we are a state that is subject to the Fourth Geneva Convention and there are 133 countries that recognize a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital,” he declared.
“Why doesn’tWashington want us to go to the UN?” Abbas accused Hamas of seeking to establish an Islamic emirate in the Gaza Strip.
Noting that half of the PA’s budget was going to the Gaza Strip, Abbas held Hamas responsible for the failure of efforts to end the power struggle with his Fatah faction.

Abu Mazen should be able to answer his own question:
Why do the US stop Ramallah from applying for statehood recognition in the United Nations?
There is not a singular statehood to be formed.
Neither is Abu Mazen an elected leader, have nor do he any right to represent the so-called “Palestinian people”.
There is simply not a united “nation” behind him. As he clearly states, the Hamas wants an Iranian style “Islamic emirate” to be formed.
The so-called “Palestinian people’ is not a people. They are a group of human beings living at Israel’s borders, who at best are are a loose confederation of different groups.
They seems to only have one thing in common. They desire to see a Middle East without a Jewish statehood.
