    I am not an "Oracle" Danite. I do not get my inspirations from vapors coming from the rocks, or priests behind the curtain. I watch, I analyze, I derived opinions. Starting a year ago the US started providing arms and money to Abbas, with most of it going to Gaza. Elliott Abrams, a name involved in infamy going back to the Iran-Contra scandals of the 80s, was the ramrod on the project. I tended to not put great stock in the bragging of the extreme right, or the warnings of the extreme left, that a coup against the elected government of the PA was in the offing. I did so because I wrongly considered it a 'possibility' rather than a 'probability." I did so based upon the fact that Mr. Abbas seemed disinclined. I felt the unity government arranged with the good offices of the King of Saudi also mitigated against a coup. Then in early June it became clear that Fatah was engaged in a series of assassinations and attempts which was typical of a coup. I just pay attention.
