In the heat of anger, when despair takes over, as tiredness overcomes, the normal restraints governing the path from brain to mouth become flabby. When that happens, sometimes, long suppressed truths are revealed.
And perhaps that is why Palestinian Authority president, Mahmoud Abbas, explaining the evils of the brutal Hamas takeover of Gaza from his own equally brutal Fatah, finally admitted that Arabs and Moslems are latecomers to Israel and the surrounding area.
One of the oldest churches in Palestine, which stood long before our arrival [in the region], (italics added) was looted and set on fire.
So there you have it: stress finally forced Abbas to blurt out the truth.
