Dont look to Abbas or anyone else to step up to the plate. Palis love their victimhood, and will one last time miss the peace train because they think they can get better by being victims, and thus the world will pressure Israel. The Palis really havent compromised on anything now have they. Their roadmap obligations are almost ziltch. Do Abbas and Erekat expect that the UN will then specify that no Jews can live in the new Pl state? This is a core demand of the pals (while they also demand that Israel be flooded with pals). Would the UN, as corrupt as it is, actually guarantee a Jew-free state for them?
