Malaise in the Palestinian Authority– Ohad Hemo (Ha’aretz)
The overall sense of the Palestinian residents of the West Bank is one of absence of leadership and direction.
The popularity of PA President Mahmoud Abbas is at its nadir, according to recent polls. Almost two-thirds of Palestinians want him to go.
Increasing numbers of Palestinians dare to come out and criticize him, even openly, and the PA is perceived as an anachronistic and collaborationist mechanism that is preoccupied with its own survival.
At the same time, the anarchy that began in refugee camps in the northern West Bank is metastasizing into Palestinian cities. Confrontations with armed lawbreakers are becoming frequent.
