Puppet president

In Israel-Palestine, Middle East on October 12, 2009 at 3:47 pm

“The Hamas seizure of Gaza in 2007 split Abbas’ PNA right in two, further undermining the colorless president. The Gaza war came as a blessing in disguise for Abbas, raising hopes that the IDF would crush Hamas and restore Gaza to what he sees as its rightful owners, being him and his government. The fact that it destroyed thousands of homes, hundreds of civilian facilities and 80 official buildings meant nothing to the PNA President. Nor did the fact that according to Palestinian sources, more than 1,400 people were killed in 23 days of violence; more than half of them being civilians.” – Asia Times
