An anti-corruption, anti-U.S., anti-Israeli, movement is gaining steam in the occupied ghettos of fragmented and blockaded Palestine. Whether Abbas and his American and Israeli patrons can somehow still manage to get this election canceled, or to somehow manipulate it as they always have before, remains to be seen. It is a critical time not so much in the 'peace process' which is already blocked but in the evolution of Palestinian society in the new age of Holy Land Apartheid.
As usual there is the corrupt and CIA-connected Nabil Shaath fronting for his patrons and positioning himself to remain in a key position of power. As the article indicates:
Palestinian Information Minister Nabil Shaath said the PA would not agree to elections without voters from Jerusalem. "We cannot hold elections anywhere if the Palestinians in Jerusalem are not allowed to vote."
