Abbas' strategy

Reader comment on item: Pipes criticises Middle East leaders

Submitted by Bob Fink (United States), Feb 13, 2005 at 10:37

Your interview with the Australian news statation was exactly what i have been thinking: the Palestinans under Abbas will be no different that they were under the control of Arafat. The Palestinans seem to have learned a negotiation lesson from the North Koreans -- keep the opposition happy, keep them off balance thinking that you mean what you say. Unless Abbas denounces the destruction of Israel, there will be no peace, just compromise, by the Israelis.
