U.S. to Ignore Saudi Brokered Palestinian Deal

The Bush administration will shun any new government coalition in the Palestinian Territories according to their President. Mahmoud Abbas relayed the U.S. position shared with him by phone call, then later in person by a U.S. diplomat.

Not only do we consistently ignore Saudi advice on our Middle Eastern strategies, the Bush team shuns their effort to unify leadership and prevent a civil war. Was that the Bushies’ real aim in Palestine, divide and conquer?

Now that the shunning strategy is in place, what happens to the over $85 million in American support for Abbas’ security forces? From here it looks like Bush wanted to support one side in a civil war and doesn’t have a strategy to deal with peace in the Middle East, other than shunning it…
