The more I hear of presumptive Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas, the more I like him. He rails against The Wall, but supports the Two-State Solution. He reveres Arafat (as any viable Palestinian politician must), but steps away from his policies.

This, coupled with the recent warming of relations between Israel and Jordan, the past ten year’s rejection of theocracy in Iran, and our own overturn of Saddam in Iraq, leaves me very hopeful for the future of peace in the Mideast.
