"He [Abbas] lacks the credibility. No one would follow him." (harzion) Poor tiny Israel, surrounded by intractable and murderous enemies, all alone in this cruel world of Jews-haters, without any real friend, forced to keep occupying, against its own will, the foreign and stateless population it has, unwittingly, taken control of, 42 years ago. Israeli decision-makers, my heart goes with you. "abbas is a weak man." (harzion) When the enemy of your enemy is weak, don't call him 'irrelevant', HELP HIM, damn it !!! He may be weak, but he still rules over more Palestinians than Ismail Haniyeh.
