"Claiming that Hamas is local government is totally ridiculous. They have been received as representatives of the Palesttinian people by no lesser powers than Russia, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, etc...." Who sends the observer to the UN, Cipora? Not the PA. The PLO does. Who was recognized as the sole representative of the Palestinian people by Rabin? Not the PA. The PLO was. That recognition is still in force, Cipora. Why DO you think that Abbas is the only person who can sign an "end of conflict" agreement with Israel? It ain't because he is President of the PA. It's because he is the head of Fatah, and Fatah controls the PLO. You can regurgitate your zionist propaganda as much as you like, but it does not alter the fact that the PA was set up as a local government AUTHORITY, and its authority still does not extend an inch beyond the boundaries of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. Only the PLO has authority to speak for ALL the Pals on ALL matters of foregin policy.
