The kind of Palestinian leader loved by Western elites

Newsweek profiles Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad. The tag-line for the story speaks for itself:

Prime Minister Salam Fayyad’s unorthodox approach is winning plaudits from the West. That could be his undoing.

While the Western-backed Palestinian Authority talks about “economic development”, the West Bank occupation merely deepens. This is no recipe for an independent Palestine (though Bitterlemons provides some interesting analysis of the current trend.)
