Barack Obama has invited the PA leader Mahmoud Abbas to the White House essentially rewarding Abbas's refusal to come to the negotiating table.The date and time of the upcoming meeting is to be determined.
I wonder if the President will close his meeting with Abbas to the press like he did with Netanyahu? Will there be no press conferences or photo ops? Will he leave him stranded in the White House while he goes to dinner with his family? Will Obama criticize Abbas for naming a square after an avowed terrorist with as much ferociousness as he did when criticizing Israel for building homes in East Jerusalem?
Don't hold your breath. Look for the double standard to continue. President Obama will likely treat Abbas, who is also the leader of the terrorist Fatah organization, with royalty.
