    Abbas says the PA will take ultimate authority in peace negotions with Israel. Hamas says the new interim government will not hold negotiations with Israel. What has occured here is that the Palestinian leadership, if one could call it leadership, has destroyed any possibility of establishing an independent state. The UN began looking favorably towards the PA. But Hamas, which is now part of the mix as never before, is not looked upon favorably except by countries like Iran and Venzuela. This morning, the EU is stating that it needs to look deeply into this new PA-Hamas marriage pact. What they will discover is the identical mix of ingredients that caused the last two "pacts" to fail. And the EU and UN will never demand that Israel deal-in-trust with Hamas, whose charter calls for the destruction of Israel. Back to the drawing board ???
