Today, Stand for Israel tells you about the Palestinian Authority's (P.A.) latest attempt to attack Israel at the U.N. In the same vein, The Times of Israel's Tamar Pileggi reports that P.A. head Mahmoud Abbas has told Israel that he will begin issuing "State of Palestine" passports to Palestinians in the West Bank:

According to a senior official, the directive to change the official travel documents, which currently only feature the PA emblem, was announced without Israel’s approval, Army Radio reported on Wednesday.

Abbas announced the new passports during an official visit to Greece in December, saying his offices would “no longer accept from anybody to use the name Palestinian Authority.”

Wednesday’s report comes weeks ahead of a Palestinian bid to reintroduce a United Nations Security Council resolution the US vetoed back in 2011 seeking “accountability” for Israeli West Bank settlement building.
