I should not be, but I am continually amazed at the audacity of Palestinian leaders as they attempt to manipulate world opinion into giving them a state of their own and pay it’s bills as they pretend to be worthy of such influence. After expecting Israel to enter negotiations with no preconditions, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas had the gall to say that there will be no peace unless the Israelis stop building settlements on the land the Palestinian Authority (PA) has it’s eyes on.
This man cannot even get his own allies, in the form of Hamas, who controls Gaza just to the south of Israel, to come to an agreement to recognize Israel. He even has tenuous control over his own Fatah party. His leadership has not produced any kind of prosperity for his people, although he has not too badly for himself. All he can do is rattle such swords as he has and issue threats and complaints to get so-called world leaders to give him control over something that was created through the industrious nature of the Jewish people.
