The Tragedy of Mahmoud Abbas

The Tragedy of Mahmoud Abbas Categories: Palestinians     Author: Grant Rumley

Picture a Palestinian leader in the twilight of his reign. Besieged on all sides and challenged by younger upstarts, he lashes out against Israel, his Arab brethren, and the United States. Other Palestinian officials jockey to replace him, convinced he's past his prime. This is how it ended for Yass

The New York Times Jerusalem bureau chief... went out looking for tension and hatred and despair. I have no doubt that he found it and that the people he selected to interview really believe that the city is on the brink. Yet his description is not what I find every day. I find a city where a remar
