Tom, President Abbas is really in a bad position, he doesn't really care about aid since most of the aid sent to the PNA is sent to border security with Israel, so if the US cuts the aid, Israel will be the one to receive the damage and the casualties first, that's why Netanyahu begged the US congress to keep sending the aid when they wanted to cut it off. And President Abbas is trying to make peace with Israel since all neighboring countries are collapsing and going into civil wars one by one and he is trying to get any Palestinian National back into the Palestinian State or to their home inside Israel, since all neighboring countries are kicking innocent Palestinians out, even the ones who don't have any relations with Hamas or any other organization.
