Abbas Tells PA to Find New President

Thursday, September 20th, 2012

“You have 10 days until I return from the United States.  You must start the search for a new president,” Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas told government factions on Wednesday, according to a report in the Saudi Arabian newspaper Alwatan.

The Palestinian Authority has reported major financial hardships, continued tension with Hamas, and a failure to get Israel to the negotiating table on its terms.  Israel sent the PA an advance of tax revenues to cover their reported costs, and the PA has appealed to the international community for donations, though the US and Arab countries have not come through.

Hamas and Fatah have made repeated attempts at reconciliation, but reunions have been shortlived.

Arab League Suspends Syria

Sunday, November 13th, 2011

In the wake of a 7 month crackdown on opposition by Syrian President Bashar Assad, and the deaths of at least 3,500 civilians, the Arab League on Saturday declared it would impose economic and political sanctions on Syria, and called on members to recall their ambassadors from the country.

Hours later, hundreds of Assad supporters attacked the Saudi Arabian embassy and the Turkish and French consulates.

On Tuesday officials of the Arab League are set to meet members of the Syrian opposition. While  visiting Tripoli, the Arab League’s Secretary General, Nabil Elaraby, said it was too early to recognize the opposition members as a government.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called the Arab League decision to suspend Syria on Saturday “strong and courageous”, something which showed “the Leagues’s intention to provide protection for the civilians.”
