He’s back

Yes, he’s back – for now. As the Times of Israel reports:

Palestinian PM withdraws resignation a day after quitting

Senior PA official says Abbas made intensive efforts to persuade Hamdallah to remain in office

Intensive efforts? I do wonder what that actually means.

Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah on Friday withdrew his resignation, which he tendered to President Mahmoud Abbas just a day earlier, Ma’an News Agency reported.

Hamdallah, who was sworn in to office two weeks ago, reportedly met with Abbas on Friday afternoon. Though neither Hamdallah’s nor Abbas’s offices made any statements, a high-level government official said Abbas made intensive efforts to persuade Hamdallah not to resign.

The Circus of Palestinian Politics delivers continuing entertainment.

Pardon? Leadership? Responsibility? Direction? Maturity? Peace building? Statesmanship? If you are looking for that, you are definitely in the wrong place.
