4 Questions for Anyone Who Supports a Palestinian State

1. How can a place with no elected officials be considered a state?

Mahmoud Abbas, the president of the Palestinian Authority, last won an election in 2005. His term ended in 2009. The Palestinian Legislative Council was last elected in 2006. Much of the Palestinian Authority is run by Prime Minister Salam Fayyad who has never been elected to anything.

The Palestinian Authority has refused to call elections, but found the time to put forward statehood bids. Shouldn’t there be an election before a statehood bid?

2. How can Palestine be a state if it’s actually two mutually hostile states run by two different governments?
