Obama upgrade of Palestinian delegation means US is not serious about direct talks
Posted by Israel Insider on July 26, 2010

Late last week the Obama Administration upgraded the diplomatic status of the PLO mission in Washington. From now on, the PLO will be allowed to fly its flag like a regular embassy, and its representatives will enjoy diplomatic immunity just like diplomats from other nations. PLO delegate in Washington, Maen Areikat, claimed that the PLO’s diplomatic status in the US is now equivalent to that of Canada and Western Europe states.
While this step does not constitute US recognition of a Palestinian state in the absence of a peace treaty between the Palestinians and Israel, it signals that this is the direction the US is heading, unilaterally, and before PA leader Mahmoud Abbas has delivered the goods in terms of responding to American demands for direct talks with Israel. When asked to comment on the move, White House spokesman Thomas Vietor said, “This decision reflects our confidence that through direct negotiations, we can help achieve a two-state solution with an independent and viable Palestine living side by side with Israel. We should begin preparing for that outcome now, as we continue to work with the Palestinian people on behalf of a better future.”
Indeed, Abbas is making his demands even more unreasonable . In addition to his demand that Israel agree ahead of time to withdraw to the 1949 "Auschwitz lines," he is demanding that it also agree to withdraw all of its forces to those lines and accept the deployment of foreign forces along its borders with the Palestinian state. A pragmatic US administration upon hearing these demands would recognize that there is no chance that the Palestinians will agree to any reasonable offer of a peace treaty in the foreseeable future.
Columnist Caroline Glick suggests that the move makes sense "only if the US is secretly preparing to help the Palestinians avoid negotiations and obtain a state that is not established in the framework of a peace treaty." She notes that "there is no Palestinian leader – not the US favorites Mahmoud Abbas and Salam Fayyad and not their competitors in Hamas – who accepts the legitimacy of the Jewish state. And so any state formed outside the framework of a peace treaty will be in a de facto state of war with Israel. Indeed, its legitimacy with the Palestinian people and other Arabs will be defined by its commitment to the eventual destruction of the Jewish state. And now, by upgrading the PLO’s mission, the Obama administration is actively encouraging just such an outcome."
