    I take it then he is following the lead of Condoleeza Rice in criticizing Carter for the overture to meet with Hamas by deeming any move for peace outside of US policy to be a failure?

  2. Mespo:

    Abbas is a puppet; this became completely transparent with the failed US-Israel-PA attempt to overthrow Hamas in Gaza. He does and says what the US/Israel tells him to, and thus is on board with the two-state prison solution and opposing talking with Hamas.

  3. Israeli “restraint” visited upon Palestinians and others:

    torture, illegal detention, assassination, assaults on civilians with missiles, helicopters and jet fighters, annexation of territory, transportation of civilians from one place to another for purposes of imprisonment, mass killing in Qana, Jenin, Sabra & Shatila (to mention the most obvious), denial of rts to free passage and unimpeded civilian movement, denial of education, medical aid, use of civilians as human shields, collective punishment, humiliation, house demolitions on a mass scale, destruction of agricultural land, expropriation of water, illegal settlement, economic pauperization, attacks on hospitals, medical workers and ambulances, the killing of UN personnel.
