    Thursday, July 28, 2005 Palestinian Terms for Peace The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct 'Palestinian people' to oppose Zionism. -- PLO executive committee member Zahir Muhsein, March 31, 1977 Let us, for the sake...

    Translation from Hebrew to English by me The US Secretary of State, Colin Powell, called Saturday night the Palestinian Prime Minister, Abu Ala, and asked him to look at the disengagement plan as a good way of getting territories. Powell told Abu Ala that this program is being done in the context of the roadmap, and it gives an opportunity for moving the peace. Powell asked Abu Ala to join in negotiation on this matter - so that the Palestinian Authority, not Hamas, will be the one that gets the territories Israel will be leaving in Gaza and northern Samaria...

Qureia said after a two-hour meeting with the veteran Palestinian leader that the issue is "still under study." Qurei's formal deadline for forming a Cabinet is midnight Tuesday, though an Arafat aide later said he could ask for more time. Renewed political wrangling over the composition of the...

    Abu Mazen, last month's avatar of Palestinian statesmanship, is now gone, the victim of his own mediocrity. But not to worry, there won't be a void. The Palestinians, who produce so little, have a great reserve of ersatz leaders. Meet Abu Ala, the next Palestinian prime minister. Abu Ala, at 65, has a biography full of blank pages. He has spent his adult life scraping and fetching for The Big Abu, Yasser Arafat. Abu Ala, aka Ahmed Qureia, is better educated, better bred and better dressed than Abu Ammar, aka Arafat, but he lacks the essential ingredient of Palestinian political...

    Ahmed Qurei, known as Abu Ala, has still not accepted the position of prime minister in the Palestinian Authority. Abu Mazen, who resigned from the position two days ago, has said that he will not serve in a government formed by Abu Ala. Arutz-7's Haggai Huberman reports that Abu Ala presented fairly moderate positions when he served as one of the PA's chief negotiators in the early days of the Oslo process, "but has recently expressed much more extremist positions. He is very demanding of Jerusalem, and has said that both the west and east of the city must be...

    Who is to blame for the resignation of Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian prime minister? The question has been obscured by a smokescreen of recriminations and threats, but the answer is clear enough. Mr Abbas (better known by his nom de guerre, Abu Mazen) was forced to relinquish the post that was created for him only 100 days ago by the man he was intended to replace: Yasser Arafat. The latter's brutal methods were symbolised by the masked thugs who tried to batter down the door of the Palestinian legislative council on Thursday while the prime minister was speaking. By refusing...
