Goes On...And The Pique Goes On
Now Palestinian lawyers and judges are demonstrating in Ramallah, calling for Ahmed Qureia's resignation.
'One lawyer told the BBC that the PM's threat to resign if security chiefs did not contain the violence was meaningless if he didn't carry it out.' I would venture to add that his threat is meaningless whether or not he carries it out, as measures of coercing the violent into containing violence go.
Abu Alaa's response was well in keeping with his newly adopted Sandward-Facing Ostrich pose: he just refused to meet with the protestors' representatives. He honestly seems to believe that if he ignores them all hard enough they'll just go away.
Gunmen, judges, useless security chiefs, murdered citizens; when will you people stop hounding me?
