Abbas answers those in the international community who think Gaza's "humanitarian crisis" will be solved by creating an Iranian port in Gaza to bring in terrorists and rockets. Maybe he realizes that Hamas is not only interested in murdering Israelis, but that he is also on the Hamas "hit list". Who would have guessed that this position would come from the same man who names a street in Ramallah in honor of a homicide bomber? The Iranian influence is steadily growing in the surrounding regions, as Hamas radio stations are now reportedly the only stations being played in Palestinian camps in Jordan. King Abdullah must face the music recognizing the end of his authority is near. Standing alone against the world with an erosion in American support under Obama, Israel will not be able to prevent Jordan from becoming a radical Palestinian State.
