What happened ? If Abbas had followed up on this and officially accepted Olmert?s peace plan he would have been assassinated the same week. The old man has done well by his constituents bringing them autonomy, relative peace and quiet as well as the growing economy in the WB. If the elections could be run in Gaza today he and his Fatah party would sweep to victory. However, a real move toward peace will have to wait for the new generation of Palestinian leadership. Hopefully, they will be bolder and more amenable to make peace.
