Ronnie Wolman, your fixation with the Saudi princes made you totally oblivious of the American participation in all this game. It was the Americans who decided, not the Israelis that Hamas and Fateh should not be talking to each other and it has been the Americans who donated over $40 million in arms to Abbas' personal security force less than a year ago. They did not spend this money on Abbas to protect himself against the Israelis. This business of the 1000 rifles is a smoke screen of a much bigger package being sent to prop up Abbas. You left out the most important player in the whole story. You also left me stranded the other day with all your right winger friends.
