    Peace with Palestinians would mean all Islamic complaints on Israel are finished. In this respect, Abbas speaks on behalf of Ahmedinajad, Taliban, Hizballa and Hamas. No wonder the guy is stressed. But world Islam is on the rise. Iran defies the whole world. Europe's battle is only beginning. Israel is an international icon for Islam to bolster its radical supporters.No way these guys are going to let him sign. Abbas knows that. He is stalling, and a thousand Obama's won't make him sign. Peace will happen only after world wide Islam will modernize to the 21th century - and then it will come easy. Until that happens, all peace talks are absolutely irrelevant.
