V-P DAY

Palestinian leaders agree cabinet (BBC, 4/23/03)
Yasser Arafat and his prime minister, Mahmoud Abbas, have ended a dispute over who will take key security roles in a new Palestinian cabinet.

The agreement reached hours before a midnight deadline puts Mr Abbas as interior minister as well as prime minister while Mohammed Dahlan will report to him as minister of state for security.

Now it's incumbent upon America, Britain, and Israel to hand Mr. Abbas enough for him to show that his victory is worth the Palestinian people's while. Posted by Orrin Judd at April 23, 2003 1:34 PM
