There are not enough voices within the Palestinian people for peace, and that's the result. Abbas move is the only logical one. He cannot sign against Ahmedinajad, Hamas and Hizballa's will. He will have to face Hamas at home. Turning to an anti-Israel rhetoric, which probably intensify as time goes by, is his only solution. If Abbas would have evidence that West Bank Palestinians will stand strong against Hamas, he could have gone further with peace talks, especially in the "lost ten month". Abbas' behavior proves that without Israel's support, his regime would collapse in a few days.
