According to Dr Nabeel ... [cached]

According to Dr Nabeel Shaath, a member of Fatah Central Committee and a key aid to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, this Palestinian new direction will be announced by the Palestinian president at the UN General Assembly this month.

"The Palestinians will be relieved from implementing central parts of the Oslo Accords which Israel violated," said Shaath who declined, however, to define those parts of the 1994 deal that was originally supposed to last for five years followed by the creation of a Palestinian state. One of the key parts of the Oslo Accords is the security cooperation between Israel the Palestinian National Authority (PNA); Palestinian withdrawal from the security cooperation with Israel in implementation of an earlier decision taken by the Palestinian Central Council would lead to a problematic vacuum that need to be filled.
"President Abbas will give a clear message to the international community that Israel had not implemented anything of the 22-year-old Oslo Accords and that Palestine will just do the same thing," said Shaath.
There is nothing about it in writing," said Shaath, urging renewed regional and international efforts. "The Americans believe that things are going on the wrong direction and the Palestinian territories will plunge into a new cycle of violence," he said.
He stressed that the Mideast Quartet should be amended to look like the P5+1 (six world powers) which sponsored the talks with the Iranians.
"The current Quartet set up is just a mere failure that should be turned into a real international framework to sponsor genuine talks," he said.

"We can learn from the South African struggle against apartheid that international activism works," said Nabeel Shaath, Fatah's commissioner for international relations. "You don't really have to shoot in order to get your rights."

Mr. Shaath said it was "absolutely" a mistake for Palestinians to militarize the second intifada -- the 2000-2005 uprising that claimed about 4,000 Palestinian and 1,000 Israeli lives amid suicide bombings and Israeli military strikes.
"I have no qualms about telling you, yes, it was [a mistake]," Mr. Shaath said.
