Palestine: Another bust, this time with Abbas

Palestinian leader of the Fatah party Abbas is in DC visiting the Obama administration. Hamas, the leading Palestinian vote-getter in the last election did not approve the visit. The Palestinian government is in a state of collapse.

Meanwhile, I$rael continues to defy West Bank settlement freeze requests,(1) a minor concession the United $tates asked for so Abbas can continue peace talks.

Change for Palestine cannot be done smoothly. There’s nothing polite about it. It will be more than a little rough around the edges.
