Watch as Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas literally runs away from peace at a UN session!

On Tuesday the UN Security Council convened on “the Palestinian question.” This is a regular, and regularly absurd, occurrence. The absurdity reached a new level, however, with a theatrical display by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas that showed exactly what the Palestinian Authority thinks about peace.

In Abbas’ address, he listed his demands, which included a “suspension of the decision regarding Jerusalem and halting the transfer of the US embassy to Jerusalem.” After his speech, he and his bureaucrats walked out of the Council chamber, snubbing the next two speakers – Israeli Ambassador Danny Danon and US Ambassador Nikki Haley.

“I expected Mr. Abbas to stay with us and have a dialogue,” Danon remarked. “Unfortunately he’s once again running away.”

And the world wonders why there is no peace!
