    Israel may 'go crazy' after UN bid, its own diplomats warn | Maan News Agency


    TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma'an) -- Israel's diplomats are warning that President Mahmoud Abbas' bid to upgrade Palestine's status at the United Nations could lead to unrest, Israeli media reported Friday.

    Foreign Ministry officials and Israeli diplomats abroad have been warning of a scenario in which Israel's government "goes crazy" the day after the UN vote, the Israeli daily Haaretz reported.

    The newspaper said diplomats are warning countries worldwide and particularly Europe as part of an intensive diplomatic campaign against the move, which comes months amid Israeli elections.

    "This is liable to lead ministers and Knesset members to vie with each other over who can offer a tougher response," Haaretz explained, citing Foreign Ministry sources.

    They say delaying the vote by a few months would prevent a possible disaster.

    "Even today, the atmosphere in the Prime Minister's Bureau is one of 'this time, we'll show them what's what,'" Haaretz quoted a former senior official in contact with Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu as saying.

    "Likud ministers will pressure him, the polls will scare him. And from there it's not far to a response that would bring about a violent conflagration or the collapse of the Palestinian Authority."

    Why? This is what Israel stands for. This should be major news headline everywhere. This is a terroristic threat. He is threatening another intifada. And of course the media will ignore this.

    Now Baghdad Bob is going to show us a story about this in an Israeli newspaper (not a Palestinian one). You can leave out the Leftist Haaretz, Bob, but use one of the other Israeli papers that has reported on this. I think we would be interested in how they are reporting this.

    Maybe they will kill them some Palestinians.

    That usually makes them feel better when they are down in the dumps.
