During Cast Lead, his security forces prevented Palestinian protests. This time he didn't "dare (stop) people from marching toward Israeli Defense Forces checkpoints in the West Bank (to) demonstrate against the attacks on Gaza."
Doing so fell far short of what's needed. Palestinians need leaders serving them, not Israel. Abbas is a collaborative traitor. He's also a pathetic spent force.
