When did he have time to get his PHD in Russia? He was very very young when he hooked up with Arafat to form Fatah. Maybe his PHd thesis was ghostwritten. At first I thought there was some connection between Condi Rice and Abbas through Moscow but nothing adds up. Either he is a genius and and also able to be in many places at one time or we have a big hoax. Is there someone out there who can explain things to me?
