We shouldn't get involved

The Palestinian President Abbas, wants Egypt to get more involved in Gaza, because he can't seem to be able to control shit over there. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, saying Hamas is partly to blame for the latest bout of violence in Gaza, has sought to enlist Egypt's help to halt the rapidly deteriorating situation in Gaza and the West Bank. "The situation is deteriorating very gravely and if it does not come under control, it will be complicated and a third party, such as the Quartet, should intervene to stop the escalation of the events," chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erikat said on Wednesday after two hours of talks between Abbas and Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. Ok, here is what I don't get: They wanted their independence and they said they can handle the security and control the situation if the Israelis withdrew. So, whatever happend to that plan? Or was it, as usual, too much talk and not enough action? Look, we shouldn't get involved. The Palestinian people need to figure their own stuff out and handle their business, instead of always asking for help. Abbas should take out Hammas and all the other fringe groups, isntead of just saying "they are doing bad things" and not doing shit about it. If he is to be a leader, he has to lead, instead of just running to everyone else for help and the only way this will happen is if nobody else gets involved, especially us.

Mahmoud Abbas cannot take any serious stance against Hamas or other militants, as he knows damn well if he does they will take him out in no time, so he plays the fiddle in the middle...courting Israelis, Egyptians & Hamas while things escalate more & more.
Does Mahmoud Abbas want egyptian forces to take out Hamas or what? there is an article in the jerusalem post quoting the head of shin beth, internal security in Israel, that Mahmoud Abbas is weak & the PA along with fatah are crumbling & in complete disarray & at the same time, Hamas is taking over gaza. its becoming ridiculous but i fear palestinians are in for a mini civil war soon.

We can get involved... why not... if they pay us the price.

Say $50 Billion per year?
