AS Abba Eban said: They never miss the opportunity to miss an opportunity. Thus, after 40 years of demanding all or nothing; getting absolutely nothing and delivering their people hopelessness and angusih, the so-called "Palestinian" leadership is threatening again. Threatening more harsh, abject, cold failure??? What a pitifully sad, ineffectual and useless "leadership" this has been and remains and, couple it with the stunningly failed vision of the (no, no, no) Arab League behavior of the past sixty years and you can understand why Palestinian intellectual and editor, Ziyyah Abu Zayyad said "My Arab brothers remain determined to fight to the last Palestinian". That's sure what this has looked like, at least to these eyes, for the past 40 years. Almost makes you think of agreeing with Lakshmi and give Hamas a chance to make the peace deal (hey, I said "almost").
