I believe we are on an irreversible trend toward more freedom and democracy — but that could change.

The Peacemaker, Speaks Again (in Arabic)

UPI:

Mahmoud Abbas, the “Peace Partner” better known for his jihad terror activities, Holocaust denial (the subject of his pseudo-Ph.D), and espousal of Koranic Antisemitism, drops all pretenses in an interview with the Jordanian daily al-Dustur.

Repeatedly invoking the common synonym for jihad, i.e., “resistance,” and making other even more frank admissions, Abbas admitted,

…that he does not rule out returning to the path of armed “resistance” against Israel and took pride in the fact that he had been the first to fire on Israel and that his organization had trained Hizbullah…

Abbas said that he was opposed to an armed struggle against Israel - for the time being. “At this present juncture, I am opposed to the armed struggle because we can’t succeed in it, but maybe in the future things will be different”

The PA president also expressed pride both in himself and his organization, Fatah, for trailblazing the path of resistance.

“I had the honor of firing the first shot in 1965 and of being the one who taught resistance to many in the region and around the world; what it’s like; when it is effective and when it isn’t effective; its uses, and what serious, authentic and influential resistance is”

“It is common knowledge when and how resistance is detrimental and when it is well timed…We (Fatah) had the honor of leading the resistance and we taught resistance to everyone, including Hizbullah, who trained in our military camps.”
Also today AFP reports:

"US President George W. Bush on Thursday cleared the way for 150 million dollars in aid to the Palestinian Authority to "avert a serious and immediate financial crisis," a US official said."
Mysterious ways indeed...

Silicone Valley, United States
I am a cantankerous man living and working in the Silicon Valley where reading books is an abomination that is virtually unheard of, frowned upon and may be detrimental to one's career. I avoid censure by never conceding that I ever read or owned a book in my life. If anyone accidentally glimpses my scant proficiency in any subject matter, I immediately accredit it to having glanced at DrudgeReport that day.
