The Palestinian Authority has come out in support of Egypt’s barnacle in chief, Mubarak. They have thus demonstrated their uncanny ability to pick the lamest and ugliest horse in a race. Even dictators and theocrats don’t completely ignore public opinion when there is no reason to so. Whatever bag of scarabs gets put on the throne very little popular support will come to him for supporting the PA. Losing the support of much of the Egyptian populace just to keep on the good side of the lame duck autocrat probably won’t get the Palestinians the benefits they think it will. The best they might hope for is that the new Pharaoh goes to war with Israel in spite of them rather than because of them. Hey guys, how is that support for Saddam Hussein working out for you?
