The Palestinian civilians need to take to the streets. Abbas and his cronies, like Arafat before them are just collecting funds and living like kings while their people are beaten at checkpoints. Do you think Abbas has to stop at checkpoints? Maybe if he did, he would think differently. Of course, he has personal limosine with special american trained guards and free access to roam Palestine, Israel and the world. The people I know in Beit Sahour would just like to go 5 miles without being fondled and beaten to get another 5 miles to be fondled and beaten again.
