    Re: The Day After September

    The full article is well worth reading. It's got to make you smile.

    Few states can claim to have failed before they are even declared, but the Palestinian Authority may be about to create one of them.

    On Thursday, August 4th, Arab League foreign ministers and representatives from Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Lebanon and Qatar announced that they would support the plan of the Palestinian Authority (PA) to seek a seat for a Palestinian state at the UN General Assembly (UNGA).

    So what kind of state exactly would the UNGA be endorsing?

    The 1933 Montevideo Convention on the Rights and Duties of States defines a “state” as an entity with a permanent population; a defined territory; a government;
    87% of Palestinian exports now go to Israel, making their economy dependent on good relations with this neighbor...
    and a capacity to enter into relations with the other states - none of which the Palestinian state scheduled to be declared by the UNGA would possess.

    That state would have two incompatible presidents, two rival prime ministers pursuing incompatible policies, a constitution whose central provisions are being violated by both Hamas and the Palestinian Authority, no functioning legislature (elected on Jan. 25, 2006, for a term of four years, the Palestinian Legislative Council has enacted no laws, and has conducted no meetings since 2007), no ability to hold national elections, a population not entirely under its control, questionable borders that would involve annexing territory under the control of another state (Israel), and no clear plan to resolve any of these conflicts

    None of that matters and frankly, it will be enormously entertaining to watch them run around like idiots.
