SARAJEVO (AFP) -- President Mahmoud Abbas was "very satisfied" Monday with meetings in Bosnia, a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council, to seek support for the Palestinian bid for UN membership.

"I was very satisfied with two meetings... We expect all the support from them [the Bosnian authorities] as they told us and we believe [them]," Abbas told journalists after his meeting with Bosnian Foreign Minister Sven Alkalaj.

He would not say if he was specifically promised Bosnian support for their UN membership bid.

Abbas also met the members of Bosnia's joint presidency, Croat Zeljko Komsic, Serb Nebojsa Radmanovic and Muslim Bakir Izetbegovic.

Bosnia is one of 10 non-permanent current members of the Security Council.

Following the collapse of direct peace talks with Israel in September last year, the Palestinians have adopted a diplomatic strategy of looking to secure UN recognition for a state within the frontiers that existed before the 1967 Six-Day War.

They are to present their bid for UN membership on September 20, despite Israeli opposition.

All Arab & Muslim states will support "Palestine's" useless UN bid !!
- So what.

And, even if the "long-shot" UN bid leads to a real UN membership,
IT WILL NOT LEAD TO A REAL STATE OF "PALESTINE",
until peace negotiations are concluded with the Jewish State of Israel,
which will require compromises that they can not make, NOT EVER !!!

The name of the nation is Bosniak, according to Bosnian constitution, and Muslim is faith, as in every other nation. Hence, a Serb can be a Muslim, but also a Bosniak can be an atheist or a Christian. The name Muslim for Bosniaks was chosen during communism since neither Serbs nor Croats wanted to recognize us as a separate nation. Thanks.

"PM Netanyahu told visiting US lawmakers on Monday that he was willing to travel to Ramallah to meet with PA President Mahmoud Abbas"

The lawmakers offered to deliver a message, since they would meet with Abbas next, and Netanyahu "suggested they ask him two questions":
1- "Why don’t you come and negotiate with Israel, without preconditions", &
( I will go to Ramallah.)
2- "Why do you refuse to recognize the legitimacy of the Jewish state" ??
( I have recognized a Palestinian state)

#3 There is no such thing as a Jewish state. The land was Arab and a Waqf parcel prior to mass illegal immigration from Europe. Where would your "Jewish" state be without the Nakba and mass explusion of Arabs, Muslims and Christians alike? Just learn to accept it, we will never recognize a "Jewish State". Not today, not in a million years. A state is for ALL its citizens regardless of religion!

@ Julie (4),
You confuse non-binding and unenforceable UN resolutions, with international law, and your "hahahaha" ranting seems a bit crazy.
- If such resolutions were so binding and enforceable, then explain
how the Arab states ignored them in 1948 (67, 73, etc., etc.), and
how North Korea and Iran still ignores them today !!!

@ Nour (5),
It is Time To Smell The Coffee !!
There is a lot more of a Jewish state now, than there ever was a Palestine !!

I would like to remember the Egyptian soldiers and Egyptian civilians massacred by Israel during the 1956 & 67 wars. The war criminals are still alive and free in Israel. Mubarack called himself a patriot but he never demanded justice from Israel. Israel says the statute of limitations has expired. One of the criminals said publicly he would do it again. I mention these wars because Israel attacked Egypt in both of these wars. Arab armies did not start either attack. Each was unwarranted.
