The parable of those who take [beings or forces] other than God for their protectors is that of the spider which makes for itself a house: for behold, the frailest of all houses is the spider's house. If only they understood this! (Quran 29:41)

Mahmoud Abbas promises not to run for a second term after his never-ending first term is over
Yeah he won't run for re-election because he's CANCELLED ALL ELECTIONS. His term expired in January 2009 but he unilaterally and illegally extended it indefinitely and still he goes round calling himself the "President". His initial election was totally unfair anyway, the only other candidate Mustafa Barghouti was kidnapped by the Israelis and held during the "election campaign" and left their prison with a broken leg. And he's made this dumb promise several times before already, it's not an announcement.
