"He also fails to respond to my earlier question as to why the Quartet didn`t just give the PA money to the PLO." THEY CAN'T, ya nitwit. PA money is for the PA. That's what the agreements - from Oslo onwards - say. The Quartet can WITHHOLD it, but they can't just give it to the PLO. Or are you saying only ONE side has to abide by prior agreements, and the Quartet can just change it willy-nilly? As for the other crap from David - astonishing! He insists (how VERY zionist) that Israel and the USA gets to choose who represents the Pals, and whenever Isreal changes its mind the Pals HAVE to agree. They did that once - when Arafat was sidelined - and never again. Read the Mecca accord, David. Read the Unity Govt deal. Hamas comes under the PLO umbrella, with Abbas as the SOLE negotiator. The next time anyone complains about Hamas being a barrier to talks Haniyeh can just point upstairs and say "Talk to the PLO, buddy, nothin to do with us or the PA".
