Abu Mazen controls the Palestinian Public and that is a fact. But soon after his election as president, then Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, has defined him as a "chick without feathers". Since that day, every Israeli leader have done their best to prove Abu-Mazen has no politicak power. Israel does not allow Abu-Mazen to rule, Israel interferes Abu-Mazen in everyway way possible and continues to trip him up. More then that, Israel is strengthening Hamas on Abu-Mazen's expense. Israel releases prisoners following Hamas' pressurization but does not release prisoners following Abu-Mazen's pressurization. Israel negotiates with Hamas following firing from Gaza yet ignores Abu-Mazen and even "spits in his face" by approving more building in the West Bank. Indeed, Abu-Mazen's ability to coltrol the Palestinians is in the hands of the Israeli occupier.
