Obama keeps claiming that Israel has a peace partner in PLO leader Mahmoud Abbas while his cronies blame the collapse of the peace talks on Israel.

“I have to commend President Abbas. He has been somebody who has consistently renounced violence, has consistently sought a diplomatic and peaceful solution,” Obama said.

Meanwhile Abbas’ Fatah is engaged in a slap fight with Al Qaeda over who hates Israel more.

The spokesman for Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah party has accused al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri of supporting “Zionism”.

He was responding to an audio recording published on Friday night on a Jihadi website, in which al-Zawahiri criticized Egyptian presidential candidate Abdel Fatah el-Sissi, American President Barack Obama, and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

“Abbas is a traitor who sold Palestine,” Zawahiri said, among other things.

The Israeli paper Yediot Ahronot notes today that Fatah spokesman Ahmad Assaf replied to Zawahiri on his Facebook yesterday: “Ayman Zawairi’s statements confirm once again this man’s involvement along with al-Qaeda in the Zionist project and scheming aimed at tearing apart the Arab and Islamic nations.”

“Since when has this hypocrite and his group cared about Palestinian cause? We haven’t seen one [terrorist] action carried out by them against the Israeli occupation,” he complained.

Assaf is presumably not counting the Army of Islam in Gaza which is Al Qaeda affiliated. But maybe like Obama, they’re pretending that an affiliate is not the “core Al Qaeda.”
