What Abu Bluff has learned from Sarah Leah Whitson

When 'Human Rights Watch' needed some cash two years ago, Middle East and North Africa director Sarah Leah Whitson went to 'our friends the Saudis,' and urged them to contribute money to help 'Human Rights Watch' to battle 'pro-Israel pressure groups in the US, the European Union and the United Nations.'

Now, 'moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen has taken a page out of Whitson's book, writing an article in the Saudi daily al-Watan urging Saudis to contribute to the 'Palestinian Authority' to help it battle 'pressure from Israel and its allies.'
Writing in the Saudi newspaper Al-Watan, Abbas said the Palestinians faced pressure from Israel and its allies to prevent them from seeing through their planned diplomatic action at September's General Assembly meeting in New York.

"We have not enjoyed the Arab political and financial support needed to get through this delicate period. These pressures and threats will continue and reduce the chances of success," Abbas wrote, without specifying the threats.

Despite the pressure, he said he was committed to seeing through the diplomatic offensive.
I'm sure all the Saudis are lined up waiting to donate. Heh.

Moriah, that cup is crazy glued to Abbas's hand.

The only way to remove the cup is to remove the hand...
