Abbas Ill-Serves and Insults Palestinians
Abbas works with Israel against his own people.
by Stephen Lendman
Abbas is a longtime Israeli collaborator. He provides enforcer services, not legitimate governance. Corruption, sham elections, targeting critics, and other type malfeasance continue on his watch.
Instead of governing responsibly, he defiles rule of law principles and other democratic values. Why Palestinians put up with him, they'll have to explain.
Insults compound injuries making things worse. As long as he's in power, they'll be no third Intifada, he said. One insulting comment followed another. So did responses. More on them below.
Large-scale Palestinian resistance is badly needed. Submissiveness is self-defeating. A third Intifada is long overdue. Not on Abbas ' watch.
"We will not go back to terrorism and violence," he said. Israel wrote his lines. He dutifully regurgitates them as ordered. "We will only operate through diplomacy and through peaceful means."
In other words, he'll permit only occupation harshness passivity and acquiescence. Freedom isn't in his vocabulary. Liberation struggles won't be tolerated. Israeli rogues couldn't say it better. Puppet Abbas leadership serves them.
