Fairfax Media Limited (Firm)
The cartoon shows Palestine's leader Mahmoud Abbas, knocking in vain at a huge door to the United Nations. Pushing against the other side of the door, are President Obama and the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu. Context: Mahmoud Abbas has formally asked the United Nations to recognise a Palestinian state, defying intense US pressure to abandon the move. The Palestinian leader was greeted with extended applause as he told the UN general assembly that he was seeking recognition of a Palestinian state on land occupied by Israel since 1967 with East Jerusalem as its capital because nearly two decades of peace negotiations had failed.
