    This is no indictment of Haaretz and it's coverage. It's coverage is from a center left Israeli standpoint and there is nothing wrong with that. There are things which do not get covered which can be on interest in understanding the tight control of Abbas being made by the US government at this point. One example does get covered, though not in perspective, that Abbas has decreed that the US approved weekend will be observed. Another didn't get covered at all. Abbas recently decreed that all civil courts were to be suspended and replaced by Military Tribunals. Ah, yes, Bush's beloved Military Tribunals. There were loud protests by Palestinians and the decree was withdrawn. Still, I think it makes it very clear who is jerking the choke chain around Abbas's neck. Every day his credibility declines. Whom ever might replace him as the person Israel will have to deal with is going to be a far worse person to deal with. But the Bushiz and Olmert are 'on a roll'. A roll off a cliff.
