The trouble with calling on Mahmoud Abbas to make peace with Gaza is he doesn't want to - nor does he want proper internal reform of Fatah - nor does he want Palestinian elections. The man us what he is. He will cling to power as long as elections can be avoided. Sad really.
The Council of Ministers on Monday expressed hope that the Palestinian factions would respond positively to the appeal made by King Abdullah to close ranks in the interest of a Palestinian nation, Higher Education Minister Khaled Al-Anqari, who is also acting minister of culture and information, said in a statement to the Saudi Press Agency.
