Abbas addresses UN.

A United Nations translator referred to Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas as the 'President of the State of Israel' ahead of Abbas' address to the UN General Assembly on Friday. The mistake was made as PA Permanent Observer to the UN Riyad Mansour introduced Abbas before his address. In his speech to the General Assembly, which was broadcast via video link, Abbas accused Israel of "destroying the prospect of a political settlement based on the two-state solution" through the construction of homes in Judea and Samaria. "If the Israeli occupation authorities continue to entrench the reality of one apartheid state as is happening today, our Palestinian people and the entire world will not tolerate such a situation," Abbas declared.

Two thoughts come to mind..
One, likely just a mistake, hardly news worthy.
Two, Joseph Goebbels famous quote:

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
