In a remarkable Volte-face, the Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas has made a speech that no only acknowledges the Holocaust (he had previously denied it even existed), but also calling it "the most heinous crime in modern history.".

Does this truly represent a change of heart/stance, or is it just more Taqiyya (Islamic strategic deception) ?

Benjamin "Grumpy" Yetanyahoooo responded somewhat dourly by stating "Israel will not negotiate with a government backed by Hamas", whereas HAMAS responded with the somewhat gnomic statement:   "the group will not give any cover for any negotiations with the enemy".

So, not entirely marching in lockstep then. Still, an interesting development.

Thank Heaven! the crisis, The danger, is past,
And the lingering illness Is over at last—
And the fever called "Living"
  Is conquered at last.

All things considered I am somewhat amazed - but give credit where it's due.  Hard to unsay such a thing so we'll see.

Abbas' Fatah faction is the moderate of the two Palestinian factions. But given the ideological differences between Fatah and Hamas in the Gaza Strip, I wouldn't be surprised if any agreement that is reached only applies to the West Bank.

Oh, and good luck trying to get them settlers out.
