"Question: Can Palestinians trust Abbas to stand up - or does he bow to the West?" It depends who you ask(Fatah or Hamas), it's clear Abbas is Washington's guy and as a result a cloud of suspecion hangs over him. The majority here don't like him and view him a stooge. The bottom line is this, we are all pawns of much larger players. The powers to be want civil strife, they will get it. Look at Iraq, prior to the American invasion, no civil war, Sunni's and Shia's lived together and fought and died together in their war against Iran. Now thanks to the Mossad and CIA, civil war is brewing. Look at Lebanon, efforts to cause civil strife there as well by Israel, America and France. We are ALL pawns of these creatures. America wants Dahlan in government because they know he is hated by everyone--specifically Hamas. Now he is in charge of a department created by the Americans, how original, called National Security Advisor. So to answer your question, I don't know if we can resist Zionist and American pressure but I know we will never stop trying. Abbas is irrelevant in the bigger scheme of things and will soon be gone. We know ZOG is grooming Dahlan but we shall see what his future holds. One thing for sure, sadly, expect this conflict to only get hotter and more messy.
