Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas admitted to hospitalAbbas is elderly with multiple health problems, so one doesn't need a crystal ball to know that he won't live much longer.
President Mahmoud Abbas is in hospital for a third time this week, according to Palestinian media.
Even though technically, Abbas was elected to his position, it was supposed to be for a limited term. The "expiration date" came and went; no elections were ever held. So, for all practical purposes, Mahmoud Abbas is a dictator, and like many dictators, in order to hold onto his position, perpetuate his rule, he hasn't groomed a successor. And we all know what happens once a dictator dies or comes incapacitated, others violently compete to succeed him. And there's always collateral damage. That means others, innocent bystanders get killed.
Unfortunately, there's a chance that the violence will spread outside of Ramalla and other cities and towns included in the so-called PA-Palestinian Authority. Gd willing, they'll keep their violence and killing within the family, and it will end quickly.
