"Moderate" Terrorist Leader Mahmoud Abbas to Step Down?

Palestinian Sources have announced today that the leader of Fatah/President of the Palestinian Territories has decided he will step down because of a lack of progress in peace talks.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas will not seek re-election in polls next year, reports suggest.

Officials from the Palestine Liberation Organisation told journalists in the West Bank that Mr Abbas "insists on not running" in the 24 January election.

A aide to Mr Abbas said earlier a lack of progress in peace talks with Israel and failure to achieve reconciliation with Hamas could prompt such a move.

But another aide said PLO officials were trying to change Mr Abbas' mind.

Consider this: Dede Scozzafava was a “moderate Republican.” Kinda gives you an idea of what a “moderate terrorist” could get away with.
