Expert: Abbas is Only Paying Lip Service

Abbas "says what is expected of him to say" when he condemns Hamas, according to Middle East expert Dr. Mordechai Keidar.

Middle East expert Dr. Mordechai Kedar dismissed on Sunday the comments by Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas condemning the kidnapping of three Israeli yeshiva students.

Speaking to Arutz Sheva, Kedar said that Abbas was simply paying lip service, similar to that of former PA Chairman Yasser Arafat, who would often make the right statements at the right time in order to appease the United States or Israel.

"He says what is expected of him to say," noted Kedar, adding that Abbas’s remarks were nothing more than a meaningless word game. "The question is what does he do with [Hamas]. Whether they continue to be in the same coalition and the same government."

He further predicted that Hamas and Fatah, despite the unity agreement, will continue to separate from one another and would have done so regardless of Abbas’s condemnation of the kidnapping which resulted in a condemnation of him by Hamas

And, he says the politically correct things only when prodded by the lunatics in this administration, starting at the top. Got to keep that hundreds of millions of dollars in welfare money flowing from the U.S. taxpayer coffers.
