    Abbas is dragging his feet. Egypt is willing to sponcer a summit that the U. S. and Israel will but Abbas will not? Looks like Abbas is going to have to either agree to talk or get out of the game. He's not going to look to good to either the U.S. or the E.U. if he just keeps saying no. Perhaps the ultimate question he's fooling with is how he deals with Hamas. Does he make life decent in the West Bank and have Hamas lose support as a result in Gaza, or does he anger the U.S., Egypt and the middle eastern countries secretely rooting for peace in hopes of kissing up to Hamas. He may come to a point where he has to choose, and it looks like Obama is pressuring him to make that choice. Israel doesn't give Obama enought credit.
