Abbas in the Oval Office

I am sure Dov Bear will do some gloating over this story.

My current thinking on the Palestinian situation is this. A civl war (erradication of terror-oriented groups) is basically the only thing that will ultimately bring stability to the region. At this point, Abbas is the only one in the position to do this, but needs beaucoup support to ever be strong enough. The White House visit is hopefully the first step in allowing the PA to actually do something to combat terror without being deposed by the more radical Palestinian elements.
