The Director of the Center of Palestine Studies in the UAE, Aldrawi Ibrahim Masri, has figured out the reason why Mahmoud Abbas agreed to participate in the sham Quartet negotiations in Amman.
He is afraid that if he doesn't, he will be assassinated - just like Arafat was.
How can you argue with logic like that?
I wonder if Abbas has been feeling the effects of those long-distance, high technology, poisoning Joo-Rays?
I'd love to be a Director of Palestine Studies in some Gulf state. Getting a salary for making stuff up is a pretty sweet gig. I hope they'd let me telecommute.
