By Micah HalpernI've Been Thinking:
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas did it again - only this time with North Korea.
Abbas sent Kim Jong Un a telegram wishing him and the North Korean people congratulations on the celebration of Liberation Day, the day that celebrates their liberation from Japan.
Abbas thanked Kim Jong for his support of the Palestinian people and for North Korea's investment and trade as well as for their close friendship.
WAFA, the official Palestinian media, published a copy of the telegram.
Abbas wrote that Kim Jong Un "sacrificed the most precious sacrifices for its freedom and honor."
He wrote that he hopes that the "historical friendly relations between Palestine and North Korea and their two peoples will continue to develop and grow" and then he wished Kim "all health and happiness."
What is Abbas thinking? How many other countries wished North Korean well on this day? Reaching out to Kim Jong Un is a destructive move that will only further alienate Abbas and Palestinians from the West.
