Jerusalem Post | Breaking News from Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World

Poor ol' Abbas...people just continue to want the impossible. Don't they realize that the day Abbas asks Islamic Jihad, Hamas and al-Aksa to disarm is the day they plant him in the ground? You can bet Abbas knows that! Just last November, Abbas was attending a wedding in Ramallah when the boys from al-Aksa walked in, shot down his bodyguards right in front of him and walked out again without anyone lifting a finger to stop them. Shades of `The Godfather'! Yet the so-called `quartet' expects this guy to comit suicide? Puh-leeze.

In case Abbas had any bright ideas of even beginning to think about disarming the terrorists and actually having a real state, the folks at al-Aksa sent him another message by narrowly missing killing ex-interior minister Hani al Hassan in Nablus, after warning him not to even think about coming into town.

Funny thing...the Pals claim that this is not `Quartet business' and an` intrusion into their internal affairs' - but the whole basis for the creation of the `Palestinian Authority,' their sovereignity over the areas of Gaza, Judea and Samaria that the Israelis gave them, Arafat's repatriation from Tunis, and all those millions of international aid is based on the Oslo Accords wherein the Palestinians agreed to forego terrorism and disarm and control illegal weapons and terrorists. SO what's their legitimacy if they can't even deliver on THIS basic commitment? And why should Israel bother with even the pretense of negotiating with them?

Maybe I'm stupid, but I figure years since those accords were signed is more than enough time to accomplish what the Pals committed to do at Oslo...that is, if they really were serious about a state of their own living next to Israel in peace!
