You Can't Do That!

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on the prospect of civil war:
"Civil war is the red line that nobody dares cross, no matter which side they are on ... Civil war is forbidden," Abbas said.

I love that's forbidden. Preventing civil war, fiated into existence by pure force of will. I wish it were that easy. Terrorism? Forbidden! Poverty? Forbidden!

Seriously, if Abbas has that sort of power, I wish he'd exercise it more often.
