"Prime Minister" Fayyad

Reader comment on item: Salam Fayyad Says Yes to Jews Living in a Palestinian State?

Mr Pipes, your disdain for Mr Fayyad and your mockery of his title is misplaced. He was elected to the seat by his party in 2006. His party, Hamas, were returned to the PLC with an absolute majority of seats. If that's not a mandate to become Prime Minister then I don't know what is.
