Abbas calls for Hamas overthrow in Gaza
RAMALLAH, West Bank - Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas called on Thursday for the overthrow of Gaza's Hamas rulers, following the Islamic group's deadly crackdown on his loyalists in June.
Abbas stopped short of urging an uprising, but he appeared to be trying to capitalize on growing discontent with Hamas in the coastal territory. It was his first explicit demand that Hamas be ousted since the militant group seized power.
Get Jimmy Carter, former US President and Arafat's former speech writer, on a plane to meet with Abbas and talk some sense into the terrorist, err, I mean man. How dare Abbas suggest this! Geez' the next thing you know Abbas will be calling Hamas terrorists. Oh, that's right, Abbas, the terrorist did call Hamas the "T word".
Jimmy will comfort Abbas by saying, "Hamas, the other terrorists, were democratically elected. Just give them time." "It's the will of of the people".
