Not sure what to make of this. There is no doubt that things have not gone well under Hamas’ rule, but is it a good idea to openly support Fatah? What’s missing from this article is the details of what the Israeli position is. Probably harder to get a quote from Olmert saying he “backs” Abbas than from a U.S. official.
Love this take on Abbas being warmer than usual. Can’t believe that will get him control of the Parliament, but I will hold out hope.
