Arabs confident Obama will birth ‘Palestine’

“[Obama] promised that he will not wait until the end of his term to launch negotiations and he will make it happen from day one,” said Abdullah, referring to current US President George W. Bush’s unfulfilled promise to oversee the birth of “Palestine” during his time in office.

A senior Palestinian Authority official on Thursday said the regime of US-backed Palestinian leader Mahmoud
Abbas is pulling for Democrat Obama to win the US presidential election.

PA Planning Minister Samir Abdullah told reporters on a visit to Tokyo that the assumption in Ramallah is that Obama will win the election, and once inaugurated will immediately set in motion the establishment of a sovereign Palestinian Arab state on the biblical Jewish lands of Judea and Samaria.
