Abbas represents no one. Whatever is agreed to will be broken by the Pali's. Oslo failed because of Arab intransigence. They promoted jihad and intifada rather than culturing for peace. They didn't even change the wording of the Pali charter. They exceeded the weapons permited and the number of armed 'PA Police". Basically they followed Taqqiya and lied for the sake of the Uma!
