    West Bank has had, he has spent years working together with Israel on security matters and is viewed by virtually the entire world as someone Israel could make peace with - if Israel actually wanted to solve the conflict. If there is no resolution soon and Abbas leaves office, then Israel may well find that there is a much more belligerent leader in the West Bank. But, then, of course this is what it really wants. Abbas has proved to be a severe disappointment because when Israel continues to claim that there is no Palestinian leader with whom they can do business, their allegation has been met with contempt. They want a hardliner in the West Bank just as they want Hamas in Gaza so that they can say - look, how can we possibly talk to these people. Still, hopefully the leadership in the West Bank with or without Abbas now fully understands Israel's games and their best plan may now be to seek statehood through international arena, being perceived by most of the world as having to deal with an Israel that does not want to end the occupation or see them get a just and viable state.
