Abbas Pushes Militants to End Attack
" Abbas met late Monday with members of his own Fatah faction and hoped to meet Tuesday with leaders of the militant Hamas and other factions. The move came after Egyptian officials left for Cairo without a truce accord, failing to extract a pledge from Israel to stop targeting Hamas leaders for assassination."
Now if Abbas is successful and manages yet again to quell Hamas and get them to halt and cease fire, will Sharon again use the IDF to throw a rock at the hornets nest known as Hamas ? Thus undermining Abbas yet again and making Israel look like the victim as always. Will Sharon have the patience to allow Abbas to do his job or will he dismiss him and move along inciting more reactions. This will be intresting to say the least as it un-folds.
