      Remember what I actually said; not that he wasn't "good enough," but that he wasn't answerable to the Palestinians.  If they elect him, who am I to argue?  But, of course, they didn't.  If they had, he would be far more answerable to them.

      But don't let me hold you.  You decide who should lead the Palestinians, Volley can decide what is fair for the final borders, MBNYC can determine the conditions under which a Palestinian state must function, and then yall can all write diaries about how the hateful Palestinians always miss the good opportunities you offer them.

      •  Cool... I get to decide the borders of Palestine? (7+ / 0-)

        Right on. Get ready for Peace to break out. Can I also negotiate as well on terms? (/snark)

        Actually what you said was that Fayyad was not the best choice for advancing a Palestinian State. So it is as Paul said you won't tell us who you support but you will tell us who is not a good choice. Got it.

        But I find this quote of yours interesting:

        For bringing in support for outside donors?  He's (Fayyad) clearly the best.  For advancing a Palestinian state?  Not so much.

        I find it interesting because without foreign loans, grants and investments the Palestinian State is going to fail. How exactly would the P.A. or Palestinian Government meet their obligations without funds. Money is going to be a big issue (enough so that the unity talks are stalled over this) in advancing a Palestinian State. You can't eat slogans, poems, and dance shows.

        So who will bankroll the State?

        No, I think Fayyad is seemingly the one who can advance a Palestinian State. Funny enough the Palestinians seem to think so as well....

        Survey: Majority of Palestinians want Fayyad as prime minister

        According to the poll, 45 percent of respondents want Fayyad to head the new government. Jamal Khoudari, the choice of the Islamist Hamas movement, received the backing of only 22 percent.....

        ...... The PSR poll also found that 61 percent of Palestinians want the unity government to follow Abbas' peace policies and program, compared to only 18 percent who said they want it to follow Hamas' course.

        The poll, conducted between June 16 and 18, more than a month after the reconciliation agreement was signed, found that 59 percent of respondents believe the deal will work, despite the problems facing its implementation, particularly in forming the new government.

        The survey interviewed 1,200 adults and had a margin of error of 3 percent.
