I received this from a Western activist in Palestine: "I am currently interning for the Palestinian.... Yesterday, an aide to Abu Mazen told us that 2/3 of the recent Bush/Abbas meeting (ostensibly called to negotiate Palestinian statehood) was spent trying to convince Abbas that Mohammed Dahlan was a man to work with, a strong leader, etc. The motives are clearly aimed at maintaining a fractured Palestinian leadership."
