Reader comment on item: Which Way Will Abbas Go?

Submitted by Peter J. Herz (Taiwan), Jan 13, 2005 at 08:20

Abbas heads a society good at nothing but fighting, and which defines itself by its conflict with Israel. Further, he lacks the charismatic standing of Arafat (despicable, lying thug he), so he will always have to cover his Hamas flank. Same old same old.
