US Supplies Fatah With Arms, Rice Decries "Occupation"
by Ezra HaLevi & Hana Levi Julian
The Fatah faction received a new shipment of arms Thursday as part of a Western aid package to bolster forces loyal to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen).
Fatah is the political party which PLO chairman Yassir Arafat headed. The Al-Aksa Brigades terror group operates under its authority.
Thousands of M-16 assault rifles, made in the U.S., were delivered to Fatah forces in Judea and Samaria as part of the effort to strengthen Abbas's position in opposition to Hamas leader and PA Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh.
According to PA security sources quoted by the Middle East Newsline (MENL), "The weapons are meant for PA forces but they end up with Fatah in the war against Hamas." The deal, meant to increase Abbas' power in the struggle for control of the PA government, was approved by Israel.
The two factions have been fighting bitter clashes in Gaza, leading to fears that a civil war may ultimately hit the streets. The Hamas terror organization is currently the majority faction in the PA after winning January 2006 elections in a landslide victory against Fatah.
The victory at the polls, however, led to a loss at the bank; international funding dried up as a result of the new regime. Hamas has continued to resist international pressure to force the terror organization to officially acknowledge Israel's right to exist, renounce violence and uphold peace agreements signed by the previous Fatah-led PA government.
The latest efforts by Qatari officials to build a unity government of Hamas and Fatah failed after Hamas once again insisted on maintaining its refusal to officially recognize the Jewish State. In the wake of that failure, Abbas again threatened to disband the current PA government and call for early elections.
Rice Blasts "Occupation", Praises Abbas United States Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Wednesday America could have no greater legacy than to have divided the Land of Israel and established a Palestinian state to end the "humiliation of occupation." Rice made the statements at a dinner marking the third anniversary of the American Task Force on Palestine.
"The Palestinian people deserve a better life, a life that is rooted in liberty, democracy, uncompromised by violence and terrorism, unburdened by corruption and misrule and forever free of the daily humiliation of occupation," Rice said. "I promise you my personal commitment to that goal."
"I believe there could be no greater legacy for America than to help bring into being a Palestinian state for people who have suffered too long, have been humiliated too long," Rice added.
"I know that sometimes, a Palestinian state living side by side in peace with Israel must seem like a very distant dream but I know too ... that there are so many things that once seemed impossible that after they happened they simply seemed inevitable," she said.
Rice praised Abbas, who is hanging onto his position as Palestinian Authority president, for his moderation. Arutz-7 reported Tuesday that Abbas dismissed demands that Fatah recognize Israel just one day before he allegedly told Rice that the group would.

I cannot believe Condi said that. Must be wrong somehow (I hope).
GOOD GRIEF! Arming them? What in the hell is going on here?
They can put these arms to good use against the occupation Condi is whining about. The occupation of Israel. With us or the terrorists, the question has been answered. Hizbollah is green with envy as we speak.
Let's hope a civil war ensues and the Paliscum use the weapons to slaughter each other. That would be about the only good that could possibly come of this.
The PA, Fatah, agreed to disarm terrorist groups in the West Bank and Gaza in 1993, took over physical control in 1995. They have been armed and trained by both Israel and the US over the years. They committed to disarm the terrorists,again, in the Road Map, GWB's watch. To this day they've never done a thing. There are a number of terms for repeating the same mistake hoping for a different result, but stupid is short and sweet.
BTW, turf fighting between Fatah and Hamas benefits no one. Fatah isn't the police force, these are local turf battles for control, Hamas isn't being disarmed. And though Fatah outnembers Hamas by 4 or 5 to one, they'll likely get their collective *sses kicked. Hamas is about ideology, Fatah is about political control and government payrolls, foreign funded.
Last month, in his speech to the UN General Assembly, President Bush reiterated his deep conviction that the Palestinian people deserve a better life - a life that is rooted in liberty and democracy, uncompromised by violence and terrorism, unburdened by corruption and misrule, and forever free of the daily humiliation of occupation. It is this belief that led President Bush, in June of 2002, to become the first American president to make it a matter of policy that the creation of a Palestinian state, with territorial integrity, with viability, living side by side with Israel, in peace and security, would indeed strengthen peace and security, not just in the region but the peace and security of us all.
We were teh ones pushing for "Democracy" there, and when they elected Hamas, we then decided we didn't like the outcome of the elections we pushed on them, so then we decided to give the losers (themselves terrorists) of the elections American made arms (ostensibly purchased by John Q. Taxpayer).
We need to start minding our own damn business and leave those wacko Muslims to their own devices, in their own lands.
Muslims should be deported from every Western country.
You're not being politically correct. Technically Fatah is not a designated terrorist group, only their alter-ego, the al Aska Martyrs Brigade. Political maneuvering I know, but it would be embarassing it the officials we're sending money too, that Condi is fawning over, couldn't enter the country as members of terrorist groups.
Well...I dont disagree with you but a preoccupied HAMAS is not a bad thing.
It's actually worse than that. Under Oslo, which is still binding on the parties, Israel, the Palestinian Authority, and guess who, the United States, party participation in elections was to be determined by mutual agreement among the parties. It was understood that armed groups wouldn't participate, thus as I noted in the previous post the Fatah/al Aska Martyrs Brigades duplicity. Political party/terrorist group, but one in the same. Hamas is armed, thus disqualified. Participants were to agree to abide by the PA's legal obligations and agreements, rather obvious, but a condition Hamas rejects. Israel opposed Hamas participation, my guess Abbas would have been happy to see the off, they'd never run before and he knew he's lose, but the US insisted and pressured Israel to agree. In the name of "Democracy". Democracy without freedom, tolerance, or the rule of law. Electoral anarchy if you prefer.
It's as though we let the Taliban run in Afghani elections or the Baath party in Iraq. The same as Hizbollah in Lebanon though, and that resulted in violence as well.
reality check on US foreign policy
The future use of the arms are an issue, but I admit small arms, some Israeli civilians might die because of them, but they're not particularly important.
Preoccupation with infighting between Hamas and Fatah. Certainly not a bad thing for Israel or the US. Were Fatah to prevail, the PA police should be doing this job though, it would be a positive. However in the context of the article it's appropriate to remember the palestinian people, how many are peaceful I don't know, but they're our governments concern, and this kind of turf battle is going to be deadly for them.
If, and that's a huge if, it actually appeared that after 11 years of inaction the government was going after Hamas with the intent of disarming them, I'd support this. My guess, they could call on Israel for help. I just don't think that's happening here. Hope I'm wrong.
