Abbas threatens to dissolve PA

Abbas threatens to dissolve the PA if peace talks fail again. I personally think its a bluff to pressure Israeli's back into a talk. If in the case that the PA is dissolved, Israel would have to assume military control of 2.2 million Palestinians in the West Bank.

  1. The idea of dissolving the Palestinian Authority was a comment probably said out of frustration due to the lack in progress in the peace process. I don’t think the comment was necessary and will not help put pressure on Israel to work in negotiations. I think the comment was made under severe pressure under the PA and was made very hastily.

    The comment reflects the weakness of the PA to stay unified in their mission and their inability to work towards negotiations in an environment where there are continues settlements being built, terrorist attacks, etc.
