Dahlan's rapid downfall, like attacks on other critics of the president, also reveals the extent to which the West — despite its preaching of democracy — seems inclined to look the other way as Abbas uses largely unchecked powers to dress down political rivals.
...
"Abbas is extremely sensitive, exceptionally thin-skinned and has an exceptionally high opinion of himself, so the mere act of making personal criticism of him puts you beyond the pale," said Rabbani, who is a senior fellow at the Institute for Palestine Studies.

At least the Arabs are realistic about themselves, even if they are ultra-biased against Israel.

Shame on the West that does not put an end to that sad clown dictator, an Arafat copycat, who uses the HAMAS as an excuse to keep himself in power and probably suggest one of his sons as a heir of the crown. All at the expense of his people and the Israelis, of course.
