We should be used to this by now:
Palestinian Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas, weakened by his power struggle with Yasser Arafat, told parliament Thursday it must either support him or send him home.
Abbas suggested the Palestinians can only hope to make progress on the U.S.-backed “road map” peace plan if he is given the full power to implement it, but he stopped short of seeking a vote of confidence. Parliament scheduled a closed-door session for Saturday to discuss his speech, after which legislators were to decide whether to hold a vote.
The U.S.-backed Abbas, who has minimal support among Palestinians, could be toppled in a confidence vote, dealing a heavy blow to efforts to end three years of violence and move toward Palestinian statehood.
Ok, one more time for the brain-damaged.
Arafat is a terrorist. There will be no peace until he and his coterie of swine are dead.
I was a little lukewarm on Abbas. And I gave Arafat more than his fair share of rope. But I genuinely see Abbas getting railroaded by Arafat & Co. I never called Arafat a terrorist before. I got to give him the label now.
Oh come on… Abbas may have written his Master’s thesis on denying the Holocaust, and he may have written the check for Munich… but I’m sure he wants piece now… he just loves the Jews to pieces!
