Full Moon Over Yemeni President As He Hosts Abbas

How does one even begin to explain Yemen's president's statement concerning Mahmud Abbas's visit there today? Searching for answers, knowing that certainly there are newspapers and Satellite television in Yemen, I can only come up with one possibility. It's the full moon today! How can anyone in their right mind congratulate Abbas's efforts in achieving Palestinian unity after the PA acquiesced on defering the vote on the Goldstone report? Has Yemen's president been holed up somewhere and is unaware? God, I hope so, because this statement is something out of the Twilight Zone:

"He congratulated efforts exerted to bring together Fatah and Hamas, noting that this move serves the Palestinians issue and their legitimate struggle to gain their rights".

In more full moon news, the National is reporting that Egypt is hoping to schedule Palestinian national unity talks for later this month.

And the beat goes on as Abbas peddles his wares to willing hosts as all hell breaks loose just as Israel desires.
