Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas said Wednesday that the Palestine Liberation Organization was being pushed aside because of Hamas's takeover of the Gaza Strip last week. "The PLO flag is being trampled beneath Hamas's feet," Abbas said. Abbas added that Fatah was maintaining a "moderate" position so as not to cause a civil war among the Palestinians. Abbas spoke in Ramallah in his first address since Hamas seized power in Gaza.
