    "Abbas is the generally recognized leadership of the Palestinians in Judea and Samaria, [but] his control of this area is far from complete." Arens has never been so correct. Our leaders have worked very hard so that no Palestinian leader should ever be in full control of the occupied territories - until they finally succeeded, in summer 2005, most brilliantly, it must be said, when they publicly humiliated the man his people had elected for Chairman by a clear majority, six months earlier. Further weakening Mahmoud Abbas for having refused to serve as a quisling - was Sharon's last victory. "We have not yet freed ourselves from the mindset of an occupier facing the occupied. We are unable to relate to the Palestinians as an independent entity with its own national considerations. Our decision makers must be constantly reminded that Abbas is no quisling nor collaborator." Major General (ret.) Shlomo Gazit, first Chief Coordinator of Israeli operations in the territories (1967-1974), and head of Military Intelligence (1974-1979), in Maariv, April 4, 2005. www.jewsforajustpeace.com/ Under: "Israel's contribution to maintaining the calm"
