My article on Salam Fayyad

Posted on newmatilda. I argued that Salam Fayyad has become a pillar of the occupation. I note Fatah repression, and also Abbas’s Holocaust Denial literature from the ’80s – which is considered irrelevant – as contrasted with Hamas’s anti-Semitic hate literature from the ’80s – which is now considered unforgivable.

UPDATE: There’s been all the stuff about Abbas calling for his UN representative not to vote on the Goldstone report for 6 months. Amira Hass wrote about it too. This was a very speedy vindication of what I wrote. Abbas, Fayyad, Dahlan and so on are pillars of the occupation, and their crimes against the Palestinians should also be condemned by those who oppose the occupation.
