The stick is a carrot, and the carrot is a stick

The Americans are threatening to cut aid to the Palestinians if Abbas goes ahead with the UN statehood bid.  This 'aid' is used to pay for corruption amongst Palestinian officials.  What's left pays for the police state to oppress Palestinians so Israel won't have to.  Cutting aid would benefit most Palestinians.  Some threat!  The stick is a carrot.

You have to be amused at the casual treason of most American politicians:
"When the Obama administration wanted to be certain that Congress would not block $50 million in new aid to the Palestinian Authority last month, it turned to a singularly influential lobbyist: Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu.

At the request of the American Embassy and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Mr. Netanyahu urged dozens of members of Congress visiting Israel last month not to object to the aid, according to Congressional and diplomatic officials. Mr. Netanyahu’s intervention with Congress underscored an extraordinary intersection of American diplomacy and domestic politics, the result of an ever-tightening relationship between the Israeli government and the Republican Party that now controls the House

. . . .

One of the members of Congress who attended the meeting with Mr. Netanyahu in August, Representative Michael G. Grimm of New York, a Republican, said that it was carefully explained to the delegation that the money would be used for training Palestinian police officers who work closely with the Israeli government.

Mr. Grimm said he felt more comfortable receiving the explanation from the prime minister than from Obama administration officials.

“I think the credibility is different,” he said, “in the sense that this is his country and he certainly would not support something that would have negative effects within his country.”
The Israelis want the aid to continue as it is really just another part of the many billions of American dollars going to the Jews.  Obama's UN speech is the most embarrassingly subservient - not to mention mendacious from one end to the other - speech ever given by an American official before the UN. Americans have never been so enslaved, and the world knows it.

The carrot is even more ridiculous. For decades, the Zionist plan has been to stall using bad faith negotiations and promises of further negotiations while it expands its illegal settlements each day. If Abbas backs down he gets . . . more negotiations?  Along with a requirement to recognize the legality of the settlements and the Jewishness of the state of Israel?  You have got to be kidding me.  The carrot is a stick.

Good luck to the Palestinians on their big day.
