A Foreign Ministry position paper includes the ouster of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas as one possible tactic for dealing with the PA's bid to gain the status of a  non-member state at the UN, Channel 2 reported on Wednesday.

According to the Channel 2 report, the Foreign Ministry recommended that Israel use information on Abbas obtained from Palestinian opposition websites of corruption allegations in order to smear his name and delegitimize him.

This was one of several recommendations the position paper presented. If the Palestinians abandon their UN bid, the position paper recommends that Israel reach an agreement with the PA to recognize it as a state in temporary borders during a transitional period, according to Channel 2.
