Today we will briefly comment an extremely disappointing speech. The President of Palestine's address was filled with the usual platitudes. We selected this speech for its quasi insignificant impact.
A very poor speech delivered before an almost empty assembly, filled with catch-phrases intended to appease Hamas (in order to protect the fragile Unity Government), to maintain the weaning international support and divert the world's attention from the conflict with the Islamic State - did it work? Not really.
What made us endure his speech till the end was president Abbas' promise that he'd drop a bomb: if he did, the explosive weapon didn't detonate.
Overall speaking, Mahmoud Abbas' address was cliché-filled that paled in comparison to so many others speeches delivered before him (e.g. Turkey and Egypt).
