E: "he should not give Bibi the opportunity to declare on the international scene: 'Nu, you see, we told you so... it`s the Pals who are umpeding peace-on-earth...' ". Abbas can point out that "the international scene" insists on sanctioning Hamas because it will not abide by prior agreements. He can then point out that the ONLY reason that he is refusing to meet with Netanyahu is because Likud refuses to abide by prior agreements. At which point the "the international scene" should become very sheepish indeed..... And if they aren't willing to be contrite then it really doesn't matter what Abbas says, or does, does it? He'll be shafted no matter what.
