"support of Palestinians"? Which Palestinians? And that medal of "honor" coming from Abbas is rather ironic,considering that Abbas is not example a good example of "honor".Remember,this is Abbas,the same guy who was warned by Israel,in advance,of F-16 "Operation Cast Lead" attacks on Dec 27th 2008 on Gaza's police academy,schools,shops,farms,houses &he did N-O-T-H-I-N-G,to warn(1.5 MILL trapped civilians(incld.kids)of those coming attacks or attempted Fatah COUP! "Honor"? "Support"? Riiiiiiight!
