  1. “We have made very clear that we do not think the Security Council is the right place to engage on these issues.”

    I share your confusion, Richard – I always thought that the entire point of the UN was to prevent stronger nations from preying on weaker nations.

  2. I get the feeling that in your eyes Abbas can’t do right.

    He wants to hold free elections, and it is Hamas who is putting a cog in the works and refusing to participate, and yet somehow you make it look like Abbas is wrong and not Hamas!

    So what should he do? Not have elections and hang on even longer?

    And have Hamas held elections in Gaza to see if the people there actually agree to the bloody Hamas takeover there where Hamas tortured and killed any opposition from Fatah?

    Abbas is doing exactly as he should by holding elections, and we should all support this move.

    And even I think Hamas should take part and join the democratic process, even though I have no sympathy for their ideology or acts.

    Not taking part plays into the hands of the right wing Israeli government and strengthens their claim that there is no partner to peace.
