Hamas’ Supreme Leader Mashaal Warms Up to Abbas

Khaled Mashaal, the supreme leader of Hamas who lives in Qatar,  spent 10 minutes on the phone with Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas in what the official PA news agency WAFA said was a “warm” conversation.

Mashaal fled to Qatar from Syria, where he had been living in exile from Jordan until the Syrian civil war came between him and Syrian President Bassar al-Assad.

“Mashaal telephoned president Abbas to thank him for his efforts at different levels, particularly sending aid to the Gaza Strip,” WAFA reported, referring to the support sent by the PA to Gaza as it recovers following the major winter storm in recent days.

However, the most immediate and influential help came from Qatar, which donated diesel fuel, and Israel, which shipped it to Gaza through the Kerem Shalom crossing.

The Fatah terrorist movement, headed by Abbas, and Hamas said more than two years ago they would patch up their differences and establish a unity government, but no actions have been  taken to confirm the announcement.

With the “peace process” considered dead by virtually all parties except  U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, the phone call gave Abbas the opportunity to promise Mashaal that  the “sacred and inalienable rights of the Palestinian people” are a state on the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital, Palestinian refugees’ rights and the release of all Palestinian prisoners.”

    KERRY AN OLD WORK (or War?) HORSE

    Kerry believes in putting a good face on bad situations, aka the Talks. Deep in his heart Kerry knows there'll never be a two state solution— Israel can never permit arabs to control its present borders. That would be fratricidal. Yet the old boy gallops to and fro like an old work (war) horse hoping to crack open wide the divide that exists.

    In the meantime Lebanon and Gaza attack Israel's citizenry, while Iran builds its nuclear and conventional war machine, and wanton terror and murderous bloody attacks on innocent Jewish civilians are a daily feat. Kerry's theory is sort of like the peasant who is trying to get the horse to talk. He stalls for 9 months, if nothing happens, he tries again, until the horse talks, or doesn't talk— but at least he tried.
