Abbas Arrests Thugs
By Micah Halpern

I've Been Thinking:
Abbas and his loyal police have been spending that past few days cracking the whip.
Over 200 people have been arrested and a massive amount of weapons have been confiscated. Almost everyone arrested is affiliated with - Abbas and Fatah. Things have gotten out of hand in the PA.
Vigilantism has become the rule of the land. There have been too many gangland attacks and too many extortion rings all under the guise of Abbas' PA loyalists and now Abbas is saying - enough.
The situation is so bad that even politicians are being attacked.
If there is no law and order and no sense of safety and security there is no possibility that world powers will even consider the PA for Statehood.
Until now Abbas has been reluctant to crack down on Palestinians or on his militias and gangs. But this crackdown is self-serving. This crackdown is a perfect example of the Abbas-style of rule.
