ABSTRACT
Palestinian Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas called a meeting of the Legislative Council in Ramallah, Palestine to report on achievements of his government after 100 days in office, as of September 16, 2003. As the Prime Minister got up to speak, a gang loyal to Palestine Liberation Organization's president Yasir Arafat, including several men wearing black masks, burst into the room. These intruders called Abbas a collaborator, smashed windows, then spraypainted his car parked out front with the word traitor. For Abbas, it was the worst in a series of humiliations that had made his job increasingly intolerable. Two days later, Abbas resigned from his post.
