Our Money to the sinking 'palestine' ship???

What They Are Saying
June 28, 2007 - Jonathan S. Tobin, Executive Editor

Like a Ship That Sinks? Investing
in Fatah Calls to Mind the 'Titanic'

Historian and Shalem Center fellow Michael Oren writes in The Wall Street Journal ( on June 20 that backing Fatah isn't the answer:

"America and its Middle Eastern allies have every reason to panic. The green flags of Hamas are furling over Gaza, and the Fatah forces trained and financed by the United States have ignominiously fled. Fears are rife that Iranian-backed and Syrian-hosted terror will next achieve dominance over the West Bank and proceed to undermine the pro-Western governments of Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt and the [Persian] Gulf.

"To avert this catastrophe, the U.S. has joined with the Israelis and the Europeans in resuming the flow of hundreds of millions of dollars in financial aid to the Palestinian Authority under the leadership of its Fatah president, Mahmoud Abbas, and accelerating talks for the establishment of a West Bank Palestinian state. The goal is to provide Palestinians with an affluent, secular and peaceful alternative to Hamas, and persuade Gazans to return to the Fatah fold. But the policy ignores every lesson of the abortive peace process to date, as well as Fatah's monumental corruption, jihadism and militancy. Indeed, any sovereign edifice built on the rotten foundations of the P.A. is doomed to implode, enhancing, rather than diminishing, Hamas' influence.

"Since its creation by the so-called Oslo Accords of 1993, the P.A. has garnered more international aid than any entity in modern history -- more, per capita, than the European states under the Marshall Plan. The lion's share of this fortune has been siphoned into the private accounts of Fatah leaders or used to pay off the commanders of some 16 semi-autonomous militias. The P.A. also maintains an estimated 60,000 uniformed gunmen on its payroll, giving the West Bank the world's highest percentage of policemen-to-population.

"Though Fatah originally aspired to replace Israel with a secular, democratic state in Palestine, the organization refashioned itself in the 1990s as an Islamic movement, embracing the lexicon of jihad. Hundreds of mosques were built with public funds, and imams were hired to spread the message of martyrdom and the hatred of Christians and Jews. These themes became the staple of the official P.A. media, inciting the suicide bombings that began in 2000 and poisoning an entire generation of Palestinian youth. Ironically, the Islamization of Fatah legitimized Hamas and contributed to the cadres of religious extremists who are now defying its authority.

"In addition to its fiscal malfeasance and Islamic radicalism, Fatah has never fulfilled its pledges to crack down on terror. Though Mahmoud Abbas routinely criticizes Palestinian terrorist attacks as 'contrary to the Palestinian national interest' -- not an affront to morality and international law -- he has never disavowed the Al Aksa [Martyrs] Brigade, a Fatah affiliate responsible for some of the bloodiest attacks against Israeli civilians.

"In view of its performance over the past 14 years, the P.A. under Fatah can be counted on to squander most or all of the vast sums now being given to it by the U.S. and the international community. More gunmen will be hired and better weapons procured, but in the absence of a unified command and a leadership worth fighting for, P.A. soldiers will perform no more credibly than they did in Gaza. Abbas will continue to denounce terror while ignoring the terrorist units within his own organization, while P.A. imams will persist in preaching their jihadist sermons.

"Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert described the Hamas conquest of Gaza as an opportunity for the Palestinians. This indeed may be the case, but not by resurrecting long-failed policies and imposing a state structure on a corrupt and incompetent Fatah. Doing so is tantamount to investing in the Titanic."

Who's Interested in 'Palestine'?
Not Any of the Arabs, That's for Sure!

Editor-in-chief Martin Peretz writes in The New Republic ( on June 25 about the end of Palestine:

"Think back two years. Ariel Sharon was not only alive but healthy, and staking his place in history on an idea he had never truly believed: that the Arabs of Palestine might be ready for peace with the Jewish state. This may have run against his deepest convictions and his basic instincts. But somehow, he carried many of his comrades with him.

"Nonetheless, he carried out the withdrawal of all 8,000 or so Israelis from Gaza unconditionally and without making explicit demands on the Palestinians -- or inexplicit ones, for that matter. He also dismantled four settlements in the West Bank, from what he and his friends called Samaria.

"[U.S. Secretary of State] Condoleezza Rice even persuaded a few American Jewish zillionaires to ante up roughly $15 million to buy, as a parting gift from the Jews at once symbolic and practical, for the Gaza Arabs the hothouses that had helped make local agriculture, for the first time in history, so abundant and also valuable. Ask about the hothouses of Gaza now, and people will laugh. Ask about the rest of Gaza, and people will cry.

"They cried even before Gaza was put through the trauma of civil war. For what was unraveling was the whole idea of the Palestine nation itself. Of course, some said, 'I told you so.'

"Most of the Arabs of Palestine resented the Jews. But resentment is not a foundation for a nation.

"Palestine is the only place where the very idea of the nation is so weak that its violent eruptions seem to be dismal admissions of failure. But however impoverished the reality, it has caught the fancy of many outside Palestine. The fact is that, had these outsiders -- some cynical, some hopelessly muddle-headed -- not embraced the cause, the cause already would have perished from its own exhaustion.

"So what is Palestine? It is an improvisation from a series of rude facts. Palestine was never anything of especial importance to the Arabs or to the larger orbit of Muslims. Palestine was never even an integral territory of the Ottomans. When the 1947 U.N. Partition Plan for Palestine was passed, envisioning a 'Jewish' state and an 'Arab' (not, mind you, Palestinian) state, even the idea of a separate Arab realm was met at best with a yawn. Though almost no Arab wanted Jewish sovereignty in any of Palestine, virtually no Arab seemed to crave Arab sovereignty, either.

"We are long past this history, and Israel had become accustomed to the idea -- if not exactly the precise reality -- of an independent Palestine for the Palestinians, the name of their desire. [Israeli Prime Minister] Ehud Olmert gladly would have signed on the dotted line if the Palestinian Authority could bring itself to realize it would get what it could get (and perhaps even a little more) if the Palestinians would finally stop their war against the Jews. And their rage.

"Would that there were a mature national will among the Palestinians. It might even be able to temper the rage of the Arabs against one another. Not until their sense of peoplehood conquers their rage against one another will they be in the psychological position to think of peace with Israel.
I doubt this will happen any time soon.

"This is the end of Palestine, the bitter end."

America Supports Terrorists: Palestinian State by Appeasement

America Supports Terrorists: Palestinian State by Appeasement!5F8571F504717D9D!1003.entry

Here is another Hamas-Fatah-Palestine consideration. Fatah has a history of corrupt thuggery that has embezzled money meant for the people and used it for hate propaganda, guns & ammo as well as self-aggrandizement of the Fatah Thug elites. The PLO of which Fatah is central has been has been stealing from its people at least from the time dead thug-in-chief Yasser Arafat manipulated the Palestinian movement as mob corporation to become a millionaire.

Enter Hamas: they lost the corruption factor toward their people. However they embraced the radical Islamism of the Muslim Brotherhood and Wahhabi Mohammedanism. This school of thought considers the medieval pseudo-prophet Mohammed’s death-cult ideology to spread Mohammed’s teaching as purity and that resistance is futile. All must be assimilated or die.

Both are murderers with a different vision with the only one goal – the destruction of Israel (the first by deception, the later with overt intent).

Can anyone see the lunacy of giving weaponry to either group? Weapons were already given to Fatah, which fell into the hands of Hamas in Gaza. America and the EU is considering giving weapons and money to unstable Fatah ludicrously thinking it will bolster a corrupt and weak Mahmoud Abbas.



Arabs losing faith in the causeBy Youssef M. Ibrahim
June 25, 2007 / 9 Tamuz, 5766
JewishWorldReview 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 millions paid out won't buy as much as a bottle of milk for Palestinian Arab civilians. Instead, the money will end up in the pockets and bank accounts of the same crooks who lost Gaza.Indeed, why try to recreate a world that has just crumbled? America and Israel may want to wait for what may turn out to be a changing of the guard: Arab voices, both expert and popular, are rising in vociferous denunciations of the once sacrosanct Palestinian Arabs."It is idle to think that Gaza could be written off as a Hamas dominion while Fatah held its own in the towns of the West Bank," Fouad Ajami of the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies noted in a sobering analysis published Tuesday in the New York Times. "The abdication and the anarchy have damaged both Palestinian realms. Nablus in the West Bank is no more amenable to reason than is Gaza; the writ of the pitiless preachers and gunmen is the norm in both places."While Mr. Ajami's commentary is poised, there is no such thing:

"Palestinians today need to be left without a shred of a doubt" as to what other Arabs think of them, a widely read opinion commentator for the Saudi daily Asharq Al Awsat, Mamoun Fandy, thundered on Monday. "We need to tell them the only thing they have proven over 50 years is that they are adolescents who cannot and should not be trusted to run institutions of state or any other important matters."

While it could be argued that the overwhelming public outrage in Saudi Arabia reflects resentment over the collapse of the much-vaunted reconciliation between Hamas and Fatah
which was personally brokered by King Abdullah earlier this year in Mecca
the anger expressed across the Muslim Arab world reflects deep embarrassment at the discredit Hamas has brought, in the name of Islam, through its savagery against Fatah.For its part, the Egyptian press has become unhinged, spewing vile denunciations of what is universally known as "the cause" support for the Palestinian Arabs and describing it as dead. Egypt's government pulled its embassy out of Gaza on Tuesday.Kuwaitis, who have harbored contempt for Palestinian Arabs ever since they allied themselves with Saddam Hussein's occupation in 1990-91, also dropped all restraint. "Palestinians are neither a modernized nor a civilized people," Ahmad Al Bughdadi wrote Monday in Al Siyassah, an influential Kuwaiti daily. "They are not statesmen. If what happened in Gaza is what they do without a state, what then shall they do when they get one?"If there could be an editorial coup de grace, it surely was delivered by no less than Abdelbari Atwan, undoubtedly the Palestinian Arabs most influential and respected journalist and a familiar face on both Western and Arab television.Writing in the London-based Al Quds International, his painfully felt commentary, "Yes, We Have Lost the World's Respect," argued that "the cause" may have lost its legitimacy: "Many, myself among them, find it difficult to speak of Israeli crimes against our people in view of what we have now done," Mr. Atwan wrote. "I never thought the day would come when we would see Palestinians throwing other Palestinians from the tops of buildings to their death, Palestinians attacking other Palestinians to tear their bodies with knives, Palestinians stripping others naked to drag them through the streets."

All of which suggests letting this Arab storm run its course: It may be a purging of the Arab mindset that creates new realities and opportunities.

For instance, throughout the Arab Gulf region, starting with Al-Jazeera of Qatar and Al-Arabiya of Saudi Arabia, the press has long been controlled by Palestinian Arabs practiced in spewing anti-Western and anti-American propaganda. But the Gaza conundrum has left them stymied, opening space for "local sentiments," which differ markedly.

Instead of pouring good money after bad in the western part of the Arab world, it may be wiser for America to help foster the revolutionary new thinking unfolding in its East perhaps by nudging along a propaganda purge among friendly Arab regimes.America Supports Terrorists: Palestinian State by Appeasement

Lockerbie bomber granted right to appeal

Lockerbie bomber granted right to appeal Independent - Former Libyan intelligence agent Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi has been granted the right to a second appeal against his conviction for the Lockerbie bombing, the Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission said today.

Sure, Why? Because these Arab Muslims have these "rights" in their countries or according to their "ideoogy"?
