Just thought I'd provide a few bio links so that we can learn a bit more about him...

Mahmoud Abbas, also known as Abu Mazen

While it's comforting to know that he distanced himself from Fatah's terrorist activities, soon after it's founding, and is considered a moderate, some of his past statements have been highly inflammatory. Among them, stating (and never retracting) an assertion that the Jews have exaggerated the number killed in the holocaust, and even asserted that some Jewish leaders conspired with Hitler, in some of his college papers.

Still, I think he represents a much greater chance for peace than Arafat, if he can successfully influence the militants to participate in a peace process. That seems to be the key issue.

From what I've read, it sounds like he's a very intelligent person. Lets see if he can use it to bring some peace to that area. Hope this is not another Rabbin.
