Abbas proves to be nothing more than a two-faced anti-Semite
Now in the 14th year of a four-year term, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has been something of a riddle. His modest, gentlemanly demeanor was a welcome contrast to that of his thuggish predecessor, Yasser Arafat.
Yet the difference in style never led to any diplomatic breakthroughs with Israel. Indeed, there has been scant progress, despite promising moments and widespread international support for the creation of a Palestinian state.
And now we know why. Underneath it all, Abbas is a two-faced, feckless leader who harbors a classic, anti-Semitic view of Jews and world history.
