President Mahmoud Abbas [Abu Mazen] is known as the Palestinian politician most dedicated to a peacefully negotiated end to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

Abbas succeeded Yasser Arafat as the head of the Palestinian Liberation Organization and in 2005 was elected president of the Palestinian Authority. The fundraiser and scholar, Abbas was a founding member of Fatah, the political party that controls the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO).
