    !!!! ABSURD (Stupid) and Irresponsible !!!! Wants to lay all of the problems at Fatah's/Abbas' feet? He wants us to choose EXTREMISTS (Hamas) over Moderates (Fatah/Abbas)? Further-- He forgets...that Palestinians DELIVERED by electing Abbas (a MODERATE, Non-Terrorism Supporter, who RECOGNIZES ISRAEL)! He forgets...that Israel (Sharon) had a chance to really work with Abbas/DELIVER...BEFORE Hamas rose in/came to power...but didn't! Instead...Sharon (with U.S. backing) decided to play his games with Abbas, etc...& Palestinians seeing that Israel wouldn't make peace. ...Something the U.S. tried to change with the Rafah Border Deal--but too late. He forgets...Hamas' nature & behavior/record since taking office. ...That if, things were the other way around...HAMAS members wouldn't take orders from Fatah, etc. And Above All-- He's criticizing Abbas for allowing elections? Isn't DEMOCRACY (choice, etc.)...what we want them/all to have in this world? Come on!
