Who is Mahmoud Abbas, aka Abu Mazen?

Aaron Mannes, writing for National Review Online argues that Mahmoud Abbas (also known as Abu Mazen) ‘is not the man to release the Palestinians from the extremist politics that have brought them so much misery over the last 80 years.” Relying on a book Mazen wrote in the late 1990s and on his role in the negotiations of that decade, Mannes makes a solid case that “for Abu Mazen ‘peace’ is not an end, it is only a means.”
