'Democracy in action': Abu Mazen and Fayyad to stay in office until (at least) 2012

Rather than risk losing another election to the Hamas terror organization, the 'good terrorists' from Fatah will likely postpone the election currently scheduled for January 2010, maybe all the way to 2012. That will leave 'moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen and suit-and-tie-clad Prime Minister Salam Fayyad in power for at least another two years.
According to a senior IDF officer, the Palestinian Authority - led by President Mahmoud Abbas and Prime Minister Salaam Fayad - prefers to postpone the elections and hold them in 2012, as opposed to January 2010.


According to the senior officer, Abbas and Fayad prefer to continue working under the present framework, in which they are in control of the West Bank and receive support from the international community to build up the Palestinian economy and security forces.

According to a plan by the United States security coordinator to Israel and the PA, Lt.-Gen. Keith Dayton, the Palestinians will have 10 operational battalions trained by the US by 2012. Four battalions have already been deployed in the West Bank. Another three are slated for training in Jordan and deployment by the middle of next year.

In addition, the US and European Union are building a Prisons Service for the PA and have already drawn up plans to build seven prisons in the West Bank. The PA currently has a shortage of prison cells and therefore has created a shift system under which it releases prisoners for short periods, replaces them with others and then switches them back again.
They probably figure they'll be ready to fight Israel by then (10 battalions? That's some 'police force') and the Obumbler will still be in power in Washington.

Hopenchange anyone?
