The last thing Abu Mazen wants

The last thing 'moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen wants is a viable 'peace process' leading to a 'Palestinian state.' That's because for Abu Bluff, the name of the game is staying alive.
[T]he last thing the Palestinian leader wants is a viable peace process, a fact that the administration may finally be starting to understand. Had Abbas wanted to accept a Palestinian state in the West Bank, Gaza, and part of Jerusalem, he could have accepted Ehud Olmert’s offer from 2008. He refused to even discuss that proposal because a peace deal would have forced him to accept not only peace but also the legitimacy of a Jewish state, even one inside truncated borders. Abbas knows that he cannot sign a peace agreement of any sort and survive, so he continues to prevaricate and seek excuses for not holding direct talks. The only question is how long it will take before Obama finally understands that although the Israelis have accepted the concept of a two-state solution, it is the Palestinians, who stand to benefit from such a scheme, who are incapable of accepting it. Until he does, the peace-process charade will continue.
Let's go to the videotape.

That's Abu Bluff's real goal. Stayin' alive. What could go wrong?

Abu Bluff received Arab League backing to hold direct talks with Israel - but he won't enter into them - unless Israel agrees beforehand to concede the substance of negotiations before they even begin. And as reported by Haaretz Netanyahu has been quoted as relating to Spanish Foreign Minister Miquel Morantinos that any attempt to extend the freeze on the revanants would be the end of his government. When all said and done, don't look for direct talks to resume in the foreseeable future.
