President Obama and his cheerleaders in the media may be fed up with Israel and its democratically elected government, but the Palestinian Authority appears to be about to take one step closer to effectively ending all hope for peace in the foreseeable future. Journalist Khaled Abu Toameh reports that PA leader Mahmoud Abbas has agreed to a key concession that will solidify the Hamas-Fatah unity pact first signed in May. The result will guarantee a strong Hamas role in the new Palestinian government that will ensure it will be impossible for the PA to agree to any deal with Israel, no matter what concessions are forced out of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu or where Israel's borders might be drawn.
One of the key holdups to a Hamas-Fatah unity government was Hamas' insistence Abbas dump Salam Fayyad as prime minister. Fayyad is widely respected in the West for his fight against corruption, his efforts to build a viable Palestinian economy and his attempt to crack down on terrorism with the aid of U.S.-trained security personnel. According to Abu Toameh, in secret talks with Hamas in Cairo, Abbas has finally agreed that Fayyad will be forced out, setting in motion a new wave of government graft as well as making it easier for Hamas to organize itself on the West Bank. This will not only doom the Palestinians to a new era of misrule but also cut the legs out of from anyone arguing that the United States should continue to pour aid into the coffers of the PA.

No, he doesn't have to act, just watch and see. The only acting he'll be doing is playing a moderate on the campaign trail, one held back in his accomplishments only by the forces of evil led by whomever the GOP nominates.
He is counting on Obama?
Obama basically rubber-stamps the inclusion of an entity that will NEVER make a deal with Israel and then INSISTS Israel make a deal. Same double game he plays on Cap Hill.
(You can add me to the ping list if you like.)
Isn’t it odd that people actually still believe that Obama is willing to help anyone but himself...
Obama turns on his own kind, what makes them think he will help the Israelis he hates so much.
After all the strings he pulled and tax money he spent to make it happen?
This is a joke, right? “Obama” and “act” in the same sentence?
Obama couldn’t nail two boards together without a committee a teleprompter and a clue. Doubt he could do much more as he’s too busy destroying America.
