PA would not be in a position to demand statehood unilaterally or achieve through negotiations if it were not for this man's vision in setting the Economic Foundations for statehood. Who could blame Mr Fayyad if he was to wash his hands of this problem, both out of frustration and concern for the well being of himself and his family due to the usual Hamas m.o. of killing pragmatists and the current Israeli Govt not even willing to give him a fig leaf.
