Israel supports Abbas' illegal presidency

In a few days, Abbas’ legal term as Palestinian president will expire. The thug cannot survive new elections. Israel, accordingly, is left with several choices: support the rigged, West-Bank-only elections to bring Fayad to power, release Marwan Barghouti from jail to run for president, or rely on some other strongman. The Jews opted for another approach: to block Abbas’ resignation.

Accordingly, an Israeli military court sentenced the Palestinian parliament’s speaker Abdel Aziz Dweik to a minor jail term. If Abbas steps down now, there’s no one to legally replace him, and so the Fatah thug will stay in power for some time. Hamas has vowed to ignore Abbas’ jurisdiction after his term expires.
