Video of Abbas and his "adopted" kid

Last week I mentioned that Mahmoud Abbas had, perhaps cynically, adopted the surviving child of a horrific auto accident.

Here is a video of the press conference where Abbas, who turns 75 this week, hugs and kisses the poor kid as cameras click. The child looks like he is being tortured. See if you can find any hint that this was motivated by anything approaching human kindness.

The child's grandfather is thrilled, though.
