"Most Fatah leaders are opposed to Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas' initiative to dismiss the Hamas government.
Consequently, the Fatah Central Committee has postponed a meeting scheduled to discuss the Abbas proposal.
Abbas has spoken repeatedly of the possibility of invoking his right to dissolve the government and in its place, establish a government of experts.
According to the Palestinian constitution, a government which does not win parliamentary support can not hold power for more than a few months. Establishment of a government of experts would greatly increase the chance of early elections for the PA.
The Fatah Central Committee, composed of 20 members, was to have convened Monday evening in Amman in order to discuss Abbas' proposal.
Hardline senior Fatah official Farouk Kadoumi arrived in Amman from Damascus and Abbas came from the West Bank.
However, according to the London-based Al-Hayat newspaper, at the last minute it became clear to Abbas that his proposal would not gain majority support. Due to this realization, the decision was made to postpone the central committee session."
THE TRAITOR ABBAS DOES NOT HAVE THE SUPPORT OF MOST PALESTINIANS, WITH 60% PREFERRING THAT HE STEPS DOWN. HE DOES NOT HAVE THE SUPPORT OF A MAJORITY IN HIS OWN MOVEMENT. WHO DOES HE REPRESENT AND SPEAK FOR, BESIDE THE U.S. AND ISRAEL?
