My Mideast Punchlines: of cheques and balances…..

Following a spate of terror attacks, PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas says that Palestinians attack Israelis “because they’ve lost hope”.

Small FistIt’s not often that I am in total agreement with Abu Mazen. Palestinians have lost all hope —  in his leadership, which has consistently undermined moves towards peace, as well as perpetually diverting aid from the west into the personal bank account of said Abbas, as well as into the accounts of his cronies.They call it the trappings of power. We call it the abuse of power. The only checks and balances in evidence are to be found in the aforementioned accounts.
