As part of the defense establishment's preparation for the Palestinian Authority's projected declaration of independence in September, outgoing Police Commissioner Dudi Cohen said Thursday that the police is expecting the worst.
"The police's orders for September are to prepare for the worst-case scenario, which we are working on right now," he said. "We are conducting a repeat inspection of all of the headquarters. The scenario includes large-scale disruptions of order.
"What is certain for September is the place and the date, but I suppose that until then some actions will take place both in the international and political arenas."
"We are facing a political tsunami of which most of the public is unaware," he said. "There is an international movement to recognize a Palestinian state within 1967 borders. It would be a mistake not to take notice of this."
Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad Al-Malki said that 150 nations are expected recognize a Palestinian state by September. He claimed that 10 Caribbean countries are to declare recognition of the state over the coming month.
