PLO chair Mahmoud Abbas released the prepared text of his U.N. remarks with a curious logo on the top right hand side of the page:

It's the same logo that Anne Bayefsky brought to our attention a couple days ago:

As Bayefsky noted, "There is not too much left to the imagination here: Israel is 'wiped off the map.' ... As the Palestinians seek statehood status from the United Nations, they claim to be interested in peace. But the logo reveals a more sinister goal: Palestinian unilateral statehood efforts go hand-in-hand with a desire by the rulers of such a state to champion the continued rejection of the Jewish state, Israel. That’s what the U.N. – with its automatic majority of Muslim countries and their undemocratic allies – is being asked to endorse."

Here's video of Abbas's remarks:
