I was at the presentation, and the press reports are accurate. The challenge is that the statements that Fayyad made, while they do fit with a worldview garnered during the long periods of time he has spent living in the West, are likely to be far different from the views of many of the people he must govern.

Fayyad ought to be laying the groundwork today in the regions he oversees for rule of law and peaceful coexistence. Seeing is believing.
