PA TV glorifies Abbas' defiance of the US in seeking UN observer status 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Nov. 29, 2013
PA TV broadcast the movie ‘The appeal to the UN; secrets and hidden [facts]’ Part 1.
The movie’s intro: “A clear objective and a legitimate right.”…
“We chose the way and entered the conflict; we won and waved the name ‘Palestine.’
“Defiance, power, determination, the appeal to the UN; secrets and hidden [facts].”
Member of Fatah Central Committee Muhammad Shtayyeh proudly recounts the times PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas said ‘no’ to the US: “I want to tell you something important. When we went to the [UN] General Assembly this time, President Mahmoud Abbas told the US ‘no’ 12 times. This is the twelfth time he said ‘no’ to the US… when Dick Cheney tried to dissuade him from attending the Arab [League] Summit in Syria. President Mahmoud Abbas told the Americans ‘no’ when the US tried to prevent the Hamas movement from participating in the 2006 elections. President Mahmoud Abbas told the US ‘no’ when it tried to prevent us from entering a National Consensus Government with Hamas.
President Mahmoud Abbas said ‘no’ when the US tried to prevent him from signing the reconciliation – the [Hamas-Fatah] Cairo agreement…
The US tried to prevent us from appealing to the [UN] Security Council, and despite that we appealed. The US tried to prevent us from appealing to the [UN] General Assembly, and despite that we appealed.
The US tried to prevent President Mahmoud Abbas from visiting Iran, and despite that he went.
Therefore, there is a long record of this spirit of defiance found in the President, the Palestinian leadership and the Fatah Movement.”
