Palestinian Fatah supporters wave the party's flag and hold a picture of Palestinian leader Mahmud Abbas during a protest against his decision to not seek re-election in in the West Bank city of Ramallah on November 6, 2009. Abbas said he did not want to stand for a new term in January elections as he voiced frustration with the US position on Israeli settlements and delivered a major blow to Washington's Middle East peace efforts.
