    Quick comment: Abbas is NOT Arafat. Hamas call Abbas a sell-out to Israel, a traitor, and tried to assassine him. I call Abbas a man of integrity, bravery and peace: he has persistently condemned all terrorist attacks (much to the annoyance and chagrin of Hamas), persistently pursued the peace of dialogue and reconcilation. He opposed the second intifada and fought with Arafat over security in an attempt to tackle the militas (much to the chagrin of Arafat), and he has called for exclusively peaceful means to end the conflict since Oslo. Now, he's arresting Hamas members, collecting weapons from militants, trying to disband the militias. For pete's sake, this is the guy Israel's been crying out for! Don't tie his hands now. Empower him to make a difference amongst his people! The following Youtube clip perfectly captures what I'm trying to say: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nO15HYO49UQ
