Fatah has a long track record. It is a record of corruption, incompetence and negligence. Abbas has a record too. It is largely one of failing to cope with the corruption, incompetence and negligence of Fatah. If there is anything they have to offer the Palestinians, it will be the fact that Israel is at last willing to negotiate an acceptable end to the occupation. If that is not forth coming then Abbas and Fatah have nothing to offer, and Hamas will win the next elections.
