UN membership is “weapon” the PA uses to “blackmail Israel”

from Palestinian Media Watch, via Media Scan, Apr. 4, 2014

Fatah spokesman Ahmad Assaf on Palestinian TV shows how the Palestinians play their U.N. card
“Our membership in the UN is also a weapon. And that’s an important card. It’s a weapon that’s in our pocket. I didn’t use it on day one. I didn’t say, as soon as I got membership in the UN, that I want to go to the International Criminal Court – no. We’ve been waving it around for two years now: We’ve obtained the release of the prisoners, we blackmailed [Israel], that is, in quotation marks, and we’ve taken important positions because we have a card that we’re waving around.” Official PA TV, March 19, 2014
