He didn't give two weeks notice.  Good luck finding a prime minister job elsewhere!

Stone Meadow: NostroZ: Stone Meadow: Points taken, but you are overlooking a couple of million Palestinians living in a nearby democracy.

Are you talking about Jordan?

Gently lol...but no, not Jordan.

For real, bro.  LeBron is way better than Jordan.

Here is your proof.

Fixed...though there is some overlap.

Funny thing is that the Palestinians ELECTED HAMAS in 2006.

I know it's easier to follow a Disney version pretending the poor underdogs are being manipulated by a small group of evildoers, but it's pretty ingrained in the Palestinian culture.

You are either with us or against us.  If you are a collaborator you will be executed.
So here is a PERFECT example of what happens to a Fatah Prime Minister in the face of a Theocratic military opponent.  He FOLDS UP like a cheap metal chair!  Democracy only works when the rule of law is followed, not a US vs. THEM mentality that is based in an extremist version of Sharia law.

Sounds like the guy & his family got threatened after being accused of being a collaborator with the West.

A moderate academic of Fatah getting kicked out "unexpectedly over a dispute of power" and Hamas yelling on his way out that "Hamdallah's resignation indicates that unilateral steps remain weak, are useless and do not resolve the internal Palestinian problem ... The solution is not in having many governments. It is in the implementing the reconciliationagreement."

Translation:  Only Hamas.  Only their version of Sharia.  No Fatah.  No negotiations.  Not even with their own people.  This is not a Democratic state.  This is not how a Democracy functions.

The new Prime Minister / President should not have to run with his tail between his legs after being rightfully elected because of a "dispute over his power".

This is how a military theocracy works.  Palestinians do NOT want Democracy.
Here is your proof.

Obviously this vindicates Israel and proves that everything bad that happens to the Palestinians is self-inflicted and their own fault.
