If only Abbas were serious and credible in his threats. In the end what he does now matters far less than it could have some time ago. Going back to his signing the Oslo agreement on the White House lawn Abbas and his corrupted Fateh 'leadership' are responsible for having brought the Palestinian people to their terrible and desperate state today. Consequently the resignation of Abbas and his dissolution of the US/Israeli-sponsored 'Palestinian Authority' that he nominally heads is now a good idea in fact. Taking this step would give lie to the constant Israeli attempts to recast the occupation onto the Palestinians themselves turning so many of their leaders, including Abbas, into collaborators, quislings, and, to use the old term from holocaust days, Kapos.
