Curb Your Enthusiasm for "the New" Abbas, Mr. Peres

Dear Mr. Peacenik: If I were you (which, thankfully, I am not) I would be cautious about taking Mahmoud Abbas at his word when he claims he'd like to have another go at that fabled two-state solution. Instead, I would view his remarks in the context of his trying to hang on to power for dear life at a time when he's feeling particularly vulnernable, and in particular from his Hamas rivals in Gaza.

That is all.
