I've Been Thinking:
Word has it that Fatah leadership has ordered that government appointees of Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad not appear and not be sworn into the new government.
Hamas/Fatah tensions are nothing new.
Now we are seeing Fatah/Fatah tensions.
Abbas and Fayyad are in sync, but the rest of Fatah leadership has a problem with Fayyad.
It has to do more with style and history than with substance.
Fayyad came from the outside, he had been in Washington DC at the World Bank for many years and it was Arafat who parachuted him in to leadership.
Resentment still lingers until today.
In the end, there is no need to worry.
Fatah will be as stable as Fatah can be.
Abbas will mollify the dissenters and push this issue to the sidelines.
