Arabs Losing Faith in “the Cause”

I am a proponent of “you get what you deserve”, and believe me, the palestinians do not deserve a damned thing. From Arabs Losing Faith in “the Cause”: Why is America trying to pour new money and more weapons into Palestinian Arab hands barely days after the Gaza debacle? It is an ill-considered policy, both premature and useless. The only sure result will be that warring gangs in the West Bank will use every new weapon to continue the mayhem and that the money will end up in the pockets and bank accounts of the same crooks who lost Gaza.

Waiting Until It’s Safe

From Waiting Until It’s Safe: The events in Gaza reinforce a truth about much of the so-called human rights community: they care when the villain is Israel, but are indifferent to acts of violence committed by Palestinians against Palestinians. The seizure of Gaza by Hamas is the final happening in a chain of events that began with the Oslo Accords in 1993. Israel opted to give the Palestine Liberation Organization – the Fatah faction – authority over Gaza and much of the West Bank in the hope that Yasser Arafat and his henchmen would crack down on Hamas. Arafat never

From Wall Street Journal, June 15, 2007, no link: With the seizure of the Gaza Strip by Hamas, a new Islamist state is being established and it doesn’t bode well for the West or regional stability. Since the peace process began in 1993 with the Oslo Accords, the Fatah leadership made hardly a single effort to move Palestinian society toward peace and moderation. Fatah did have an attractive alternative it could have offered: We will get a state, return the refugees to live in it, develop our economy and culture and enjoy large-scale international aid in exchange for ending the

Running from their own shadow. From Collaborators Face Death in Town Where They Hoped to Find Safety: More than a dozen Palestinian collaborators with Israel who fled Gaza with their families have since settled in Sderot, where they are forced to dodge rockets fired at Sderot from Gaza. In some cases their relatives are tied to the very militant groups behind recent rocket attacks on the town.

From The Consequences of the Civil War in Gaza: After Ariel Sharon pulled Israel out of Gaza two years ago, Israel didn’t get the security it wished for; the daily shelling of Israeli towns continued and even intensified. However, he did succeed in transforming Gaza from an Israeli headache into a Palestinian problem. “The American strategy has totally collapsed,” Israeli officials said this week. First, they carried out an exercise in democracy, and that led to the election of Hamas. Then they abandoned democracy and tried to arm Fatah operatives in Gaza so they would fight Hamas. This approach didn’t

Hamas Takeover in Gaza Makes Defining Targets Easier for IDF

The silver lining in the Hamas cloud over Israel. From Hamas Takeover in Gaza Makes Defining Targets Easier for IDF: Some Israeli defense officials said there was reason to be thankful for Hamas’ takeover of Gaza. Prior to this, Israel had to distinguish between Fatah and Hamas gunmen in Gaza and make sure that Abbas loyalists were not targeted. Now, all gunmen are Hamas and therefore fair game. “The bank of targets has grown tremendously with Hamas’ takeover,” explained one official involved in planning policy in Gaza. “Hamas is a clear and defined enemy, and that means that when we

Fundamentalists Threaten Israel from All Sides

The Telgraph is too cowardly to use the term “Muslim”, so they choose the term “Fundamentalist”. Cowardly pukes. From Fundamentalists Threaten Israel from All Sides: Hamas makes no secret of the fact that it now receives most of its financial and military support from Iran. The Iranian government signed a memorandum of understanding with the Hamas leadership in June last year in which it agreed to fund the militant group to the tune of £400 million. In addition, Iran provides military training to Hamas members by sending them to camps in Lebanon and Iran run by the elite Quds Force

Run, you cowardly bastards, run. From As Gaza Unravels, Palestinians Flee: Figures collected by European monitors at Rafah, the crossing into Egypt, show that some 14,000 Palestinians have left Gaza in the past year. Palestinian officials had asked to close the Rafah crossing into Egypt when they saw they could not protect European monitors there. “The real people controlling Rafah are Hamas, because they’re just outside the checkpoint and they’re controlling who can come and go,” said Shlomo Dror, Israel’s spokesman for the coordinator for government activities in the territories. Gazans who hope to leave are turning to agents who
