Ariel Sharon praised Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, also known as Abu Mazen, for reining in violence. “There is no doubt that Abu Mazen has begun to work,” the Israeli prime minister told Yediot Aharonot on Thursday, referring to the Palestinian leader’s cease-fire talks with terrorist groups in Gaza. “I am very satisfied with what I hear is happening on the Palestinian side, and I have a serious interest in advancing the peace process with him.”
