ABBAS FINALLY GETS IT RIGHT: From Wall Street Journal's Best of the Web:

Oslo, RIP
With civil war raging in Gaza, an Associated Press dispatch includes this interesting observation:

Hamas mounted accusations on its Web sites, radio and TV that Abbas-linked forces were working with Israel--a charge dismissed as "absurd" by a Fatah spokesman.

Yasser Arafat is in stable condition after dying at a Paris hospital, and Mahmoud Abbas is his successor as head of the Palestinian Authority and the Fatah political/terrorist movement. Fatah says it's "absurd" that it would be working with Israel against the terrorists of Hamas--but that of course was the entire point of the Oslo accords. It's a sad little postscript to President Clinton's peace efforts.

And these days, who reads postscripts...
