Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has never faced as much outrage as over his decision to suspend efforts to get Israeli officials put on trial for war crimes in Gaza.
On Wednesday, Gaza professors threw shoes at his defaced image and West Bank commentators called for his resignation, the latest signs Abbas may have miscalculated in bowing to what Palestinian officials say was intense U.S. pressure.He has no mandate to negotiate for Palestine, he CLEARLY does not represent the Palestinian people. He must be removed from this position. more:
Abbas is unlikely to be forced out of office because he enjoys strong Western support (He's an agent for the West and Israel!) and has ruled the West Bank without challenge since his Hamas rivals drove him out of Gaza in 2007.
However, the scandal could cause lasting harm to the 74-year-old Palestinian leader's standing with voters and his ability to negotiate with Israel.
In the short term, the U.S. is pushing for a quick resumption of Mideast peace talks, but gaps remain wide on what it takes to get back to the table. A weakened Abbas may not be in a position to make concessions when President Barack Obama's special Mideast envoy, George Mitchell, returns to the region this week.CONCESSIONS????? Sorry but WTF???? Let's see, Abbas continues to give up land to the Zionists, allows Western Military Colonial Dayton (A Bush appointee that Obama kept on) to oversee the West Bank, works with the Israeli military, the SAME people who murder Palestinians and steal their land, he dropped the Goldstone report, and they are talking about more "CONCESSIONS?" Seriously, the PA needs to go, they have no mandate from the people of Palestine to act on their behalf or in their best interest or the best interest of Palestine.
"This is the worst position that Abbas has found himself in since he was elected president," said Hani al-Masri, a West Bank commentator. sourceWell I should say so! Let's look at Abbas. He's been accused of helping to murder Arafat, he refused to call a conference or elections for years to keep his sorry arse in office, he refuses to unite with HAMAS who won the majority in the last DEMOCRATIC election, he gives Palestinian land away on a weekly basis, he trades the future of Palestine for a "Shiny New Israeli Cellular Phone System" and "Pressure from the US" and he DOES This off the backs of the thousands of dead, fatherless, motherless, brotherless, sisterless and childless Palestinian victims.
GET THE TRAITOR OUT
Now, where's some shoes worthy of throwing at Abbas. Ah yes, the "Shit Shoes" are a good choice, don't you think?
