...same as the old boss

AP: "Forty-six members of the Palestinian election commission, including top managers, resigned Saturday, saying they were pressured by Mahmoud Abbas' campaign and intelligence officials to abruptly change voting procedures during the Jan. 9 presidential poll."

Right. So the Palestinian people are still ruled by thugs of questionable mandate. And the UN will still draw moral equivalence between this regime which says it will engage in dialogue with those who target women and children in rocket attacks and suicide bombings but not round them up, and the democratically-elected government of Israel. I'm still waiting for an explanation of why we should effectively surrender national sovereignty or even give the time of day to a wanna-be world government that considers democracy and dictatorship to be equally valid, and is systemically anti-Semitic.
