Giant blue chair unveiled in Ramallah. Really.

Style over substance.

Today, in Ramallah, a giant blue chair was unveiled in support of Mahmoud Abbas' bid for "Palestine" to become a recognized nation.

This chair symbolizes everything wrong about the Palestinian Arab leadership.

No effort is put into actually building a nation - only in appearing to build a nation to make the West happy.

No effort is put into finding a peaceful compromise with Israel - only in appearing to look more moderate than Netanyahu.

"Unity" with Hamas, pretending to change the PLO Covenant - everything the Palestinian Arabs do is for show, with no real value.

They are great at symbolism, because that's all they know how to do.

The circus this week at the UN is just another method to avoid doing real work for peace and instead rely on fooling the world with stunts. It is a magician's act where the audience doesn't want to look behind the curtain, fearful it might ruin their enjoyment of a great show.
