Does Abbas have any shame?

December 28th, 2008 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

Abbas blames the victim, not the attacker – in the biggest massacre since 1967.

“We believe the way forward from here is for rocket attacks against Israel to stop, for all violence to end,” [US ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad] said.

He was implicitly backed up from Cairo by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas – whose Fatah faction is a bitter rival of Hamas.

“We could have avoided what happened,” Mr Abbas said, saying the Islamist group should have renewed the ceasefire before it lapsed.
