Sorry Mahmoud, Obama’s making promises his butt can’t cash.

(Ynet) — The Palestinians are signaling they are still planning to go ahead with efforts to declare an independent state with the backing of the United Nations.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said during a visit in Tunisia that the Palestinian Authority is ready to establish a state. “We are counting on the words of US President Barack Obama who said his vision is to see a Palestinian state this coming September according to a deadline set by the Quartet.”

Abbas added that 130 countries have already recognized a Palestinian state on 1967 borders and that this number could well reach 140 or 150. He stated that Western European countries have also accepted the fact that a Palestinian state will be established sooner or later, despite not having recognized it yet.
