Just call him Arafat, Jr.

Abbas, the man who supposedly wishes for Palestine to embrace peaceful democracy, is also a man who denies the Holocaust, blaming its place in history on a "Zionist conspiracy." He's set to win the Palestinian election.

I'm reminded of a movie clip I saw on television last week in which a man who denied the Holocaust was barred from testifying in court due to a lack of validity. If this is true in real life, then we again don't have a legitimate partner in peace.

As much as I loathe war and violence, cooperating with a known enemy of Israel's major demographic isn't the solution.
