Why do these officials claim to represent the Palestinians and their opinions? When were they elected? Didn't their term expire years ago? Before you can negotiate a peace treaty, the Palestinians need true leaders that have the people's best interests in mind. Abbas and his entourage have been largely unsuccessful thus far in acheving anything so my suggestion is that they resign their positions immediately and elect officials who are much more qualified.
