Mahmoud Abbas's Son Yasser (Named For You-Know-Who?) Loses Defamation Suit Against Foreign Affairs

He claimed his reputation was damaged by a 2012 article that
described the "conspicuous wealth" of Yasser Abbas and his brother Tarek and questioned whether they are "growing rich off their father's system."
The reason his lawsuit (asking for $10 million in compensation) failed:
The appeals court ruled that the story was not defamatory because it presented the issue in the form of questions without reaching any factual conclusions.
Just goes to show how hard it is being a kleptocrat's son. ;)
