Abbas performed as he had to. He kept the West Bank quiet. Were he allow it to spin into chaos, then Israel would have had an excuse to savage the West Bank as it was Gaza. Abbas has been working for years on the premise that israel would reward the Palestinians with a State if the Palestinians proved they would live in Peace with Israel. Israel is delighted that Abbas has kept the peace. Israel has proven it will never allow a Palestinian State. Was Abbas a perfidious man? No, he has not betrayed Palestinians. Has he been used, and abused by perfidious men?
