You know it's not enough for Israel and America to attempt an overthrow of the Iranian government, nope! Now they have to attempt the same thing in Palestine by giving arms to only half of the elected government, the half that works with Israel that is..........what a disgrace, seriously, Fatah should be so ashamed of itself. Accepting weapons to kill off their elected rivals. So much for democracy, but then again, Fatah is so corrupt it cares nothing for the Palestinian people, only it's greed. Fatah has made no serious attempts at unifying with Hamas, and why should they, if they did the Israeli/US support and funding would have to be shared.
Israel's defense minister has decided to allow the transfer of some 1,000 Kalashnikov rifles from abroad to the Palestinian Authority, according to news reports.That last line makes me laugh mi arse off TBH. Fatah is being funded and armed by the superpowers, and these asshats in Fatah want to say something about Hamas using bombs? It's all they can get their hands on to fight back with against the Israeli Agents of FATAH and the Zionist Occupying Force in their country. How absurd! HAmas is a democratically elected government that Israel and the US choose to ignore and treat as "terrorists" when they fight back against the siege and constant Israeli excursions into their country. I am reminded of one of my favorites expressions of truth:
The report, which was published in the Jerusalem Post on Monday, comes just hours before a meeting between Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak and US envoy for the Middle East George Mitchell, who supports a strong PA.
The delivery of the automatic weapons was approved weeks ago, the newspaper reported, but was held up for what Israel's military called customary ballistic tests.
Earlier this year, Russia donated 50 BTR-70 armored vehicles to the PA that have also been held up, this time by Jordan, for security checks, according to the newspaper.
The Western-backed PA has of late come into escalating violence with militants associated with its rival Hamas in the West Bank, and has in recent months seized arms, explosives and millions of dollars in cash from Hamas, an official said on Sunday.
The official, security forces spokesperson Adnan Ad-Damiry, told Ma'an that its West Bank officers discovered "large amounts of explosives and bombs in the districts of Nablus, Hebron and Qalqiliya."
He also alleged that Hamas intended to use the weapons "heinously" against PA forces. link
"One Man's Terrorist another Man's Freedom Fighter" Perhaps people forget that Mandela who is considered a man of peace today, supported armed struggle in South Africa. He said this:
“The time comes in the life of any nation when there remain only two choices – submit or fight. That time has now come to South Africa. We shall not submit and we have no choice but to hit back by all means in our power in defence of our people, our future, and our freedom”.
