NY Times Flatters Abbas

This in from the Jerusalem bureau chief of what is widely considered America's top newspaper:

But it will be very difficult now for Mr. Mubarak to reseal the border completely. More likely, he will work something out with Mr. Abbas and Israel to allow a regulated border crossing. But even that will resound as a Hamas victory, because both Egypt and Israel will have been forced to a concession that they could have negotiated freely with Mr. Abbas any time in the last six months.

Anyone home? Just over six months ago, Hamas routed Abbas' forces from the Gaza Strip. So any negotiations about Gaza involving Abbas would be farcical.

(Hat tip: Richard B.)
