> Succumbing to US pressure and unabashed Israeli blackmail,
> Mahmoud Abbas, leader of the Ramallah Palestinian
> Authority (PA), was reportedly personally responsible for
> the decision to defer UN Security Council consideration of
> the Goldstone report. This dashed the hopes of
> Palestinians everywhere as well as those of international
> human rights organizations and solidarity movements, that
> Israel would finally face a long overdue process of legal
> accountability and that its victims would have a measure
> of justice.

> Bereft of any credible or legitimate leadership, the

> actually least involved in it. Saree Makdisi comments for
