The Flavor of the Month
By Micah Halpern

Friday December 8, 2006

I'm Predicting:

The long neglected Palestinians are about to become the flavor of the month in the Muslim world.

Ismail Haniyeh, prime minister of the PA, is on a four-day trip to Iran.
Iran has actually, finally, begun to come through with some of the money that they have been pledging to the Palestinians.

Haniyeh's agenda is to make sure that more money keeps flowing his way.
Forget the fact that the United States is stifling all movement of monies to Hamas, these guys are resourceful, they will find a way.
Iran has another agenda.
Iran wants Shiite inroads in a traditionally non-Shiite region.

The Palestinians are playing with fire.
They are about to create a huge rift with the other Sunnis. To minimize the impact of their actions, the Palestinians are teasing and taunting other Arab countries saying: Iran is giving money where is your donation and support?
The Palestinian plan seems to be working. Qatar now pledged $40 million a month to pay the salaries of Palestinian teachers and health care workers.

The infighting is going to get complicated and ugly.
