Leading Middle East Journalist: New PA PM Has Resigned

The Palestinian Authority's most recent Prime Minister has resigned - whether or not the resignation was accepted, will it be enough to put a brake on the world's efforts to pretend now is the right time to push forward the "peace process?"

PA PM Rami Hamdallah is claimed to have resigned after only a few weeks in office

Khaled abu Toameh, who for years has been the leading journalist reporting accurately on the Palestinian Authority, its many divisions and opponents, as well as the situation in general in Israel and the wider Middle East posted on his Facebook page the bombshell that the brand new Prime Minister of the Palestinian Authority, Rami Hamdallah, has resigned.

According to abu Toameh, Hamdallah was unhappy with efforts by Palestian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas to curtail Hamdallah’s powers.

The 55 year old Hamdallah was named PA Prime Minister by Abbas earlier this month, following the resignation of the west’s favorite Arab Palestinian politician, Salam Fayyad, earlier this spring. It is not yet clear whether Hamdallah’s resignation was accepted by Abbas.

How much this news – either that Hamdallah has resigned or that he is attempting to –  will affect the relentless efforts of the U.S. to force forward the “peace talks” remains to be seen.
