Abbas serially refuses to restart the stalled talks yet succeeds in blaming Israel for stymieing the parleys in which he won’t participate.
Does Abbas deserve his good-guy credentials? Why has he proven such an abysmal failure? Who truly undermined him? And is he worth saving?

Abbas' most positive legacy, from the viewpoint of peace, was his defiance of violence.
Israel should worry less about Mahmoud Abbas’s shenanigans, and focus more on buttressing and broadcasting its own myriad successes.
