Just In Case You Thought The Road Map Was Going To Work Out..
This just in from the Associated Press:
The Palestinian prime minister said Monday he will not use force against militant groups under any circumstances, despite their stated determination to derail a U.S.-backed peace plan with attacks on Israelis, including two weekend shootings that killed five soldiers.
The prime minister, Mahmoud Abbas, also defended himself against complaints at home that he has been too conciliatory to Israel, including in a speech at a Mideast summit last week, and that Israel has given little in return.
Abbas said he has coordinated every move with Yasser Arafat – a barb at the veteran leader who said in public last week that the summit yielded no achievements.
- It is good to see that by giving up more land and security we will receive in return……nothing.
- It is good to see that Arafat is irrelevant now that there is a new palestinian prime minister.
