"hamas." Now that's interesting. We were talking about the PLO V PA and suddenly the puppy's talking about Hamas. Everyone watch the tangent machine try to avoid reality again. He still ignores that, though Abbas is the Chairman of the PLO, all RM discussions from the Quartet openly address and deal with him as the PM of the PA. He avoids that when Abbas accepted the Road Map, he did so as the Prime Minister Abbas of the Palestinian Authority, not as the head of the PLO. Most importantly, oops, he runs away from the fact that Arafat was still head of the PLO, but the Quartet wanted the PA to sign. He also fails to respond to my earlier question as to why the Quartet didn't just give the PA money to the PLO. Lots and lots of avoidance. It's the only way he can rationalize his fantasies. Still a funny puppy, amusing many. Again, JB, thanx for educating the lurkers; you're always helpful.
