Hamas Publishes Fatah Hit-List, Confiscates US-Supplied Weapons

Hamastan's War of Independence

(IsraelNN.com) The civil war between Hamas and Fatah terrorists raged on in Gaza Wednesday, with Hamas on the verge of victory. Hamas seized thousands of weapons and vehicles granted to Fatah by the Oslo Accords.

A Hamas spokesman said that a decision had been taken to kill all of Fatah’s leading officials, who he referred to as “dogs beholden to their Israeli masters.”

Hamas has distributed a list of at least 30 Fatah officials it seeks to have killed for complicity, they say, in a US-backed plan to topple Hamas. The first name is senior Fatah terrorist Mohammed Dahlan, who holds the position of National Security Adviser in the Fatah-Hamas PA unity government. He has been hiding out in Egypt for the past two months. Many of the other Fatah men on the list have fled Gaza.

Hamas took over nearly all Fatah positions in Gaza and confiscated thousands of rifles, tons of ammunition and armored jeeps and APCs supplied by the US, Egypt and Israel over the years.

Eight Fatah men were killed Wednesday morning defending the home of senior Fatah official Mahr Mekhdad – who escaped the fighting. About 200 Hamas terrorists surrounded the home of Yassir Arafat confidant Nabil Shaath – shooting one of his body guards.

PA reports say 15 were injured in Wednesday’s clashes – five civilians. More than 25 people were killed in Tuesday’s clashes totaling more than 66 in recent days.

Tuesday night, senior Fatah commander Jamal Abu Jadian tried to escape a Hamas siege on his northern Gaza home, dressed as a Muslim woman, in full hijab. He took refuge in a nearby hospital, but was spotted by Hamas terrorists, who pumped more than 40 bullets into his head with automatic rifles. He died from the assault.

A close ally of Dahlan’s, Abu Jadian is the third senior Fatah commander to be gunned down in recent clashes.

Hamas has completely taken control of northern Gaza, declaring it closed to members of the Fatah-loyal PA forces. In central Gaza, Hamas took over Fatah Presidential Guard positions with hardly any resistance. A Fatah position controlling Gaza’s main road was also seized and destroyed. The only Fatah presence remaining in Gaza is a few positions in Gaza City.

Fatah terrorists fired an RPG (rocket-propelled grenade) at the home of Hamas’s deputy Information Minister Tuesday, setting it on fire.

PA Foreign Minister Ziad Abu Amr said that the clashes between Fatah and Hamas could be expected to spread to Judea and Samaria as well. Shooting between Fatah and Hamas terrorists has already been reported in Shechem.

Both Fatah’s Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas’s Ismail Haniyeh called for an end to fighting Tuesday. Both had their homes and offices targeted by rival terrorists and the calls of both have been ignored. Abbas called Hamas’s attacks a “bloody coup.”

Fatah has decided to “suspend its participation in the national unity government until the fighting stops,” said a statement following a Fatah session in Ramallah Tuesday.

Thanks George. In your memoirs, please include the following:

I have discovered the hard way that giving weapons to terrorists under the assumption that the terrorists will protect the very same populations that the terrorists seek to attack is not realistic (or as dad says "wouldn't be prudent"). Assigning the task of promoting responsible and peaceful co-existence, to violent gang thugs who shake down the citizenry, take their salaries and buy weapons off the top of humanitarian "donations" given by the Jew hating nations of the world, and use armed para-military acting as civil police who seek out "collaborators" with the "Zionist entity", is not a productive use of expensive American foreign policy credibility and treasure.

Think about it George. Maybe you can save some of your legacy by showing you have grown with experience. Don't follow Jimmah Cahr'ter and Emperor Clintonious down the hell hole of historical memory. I know, you didn't begin the process of, not arms for hostages but arms for terrorist thugs. But, it did continue on your watch. While the collapse of Fatah (at least in Gaza) is probably a good thing in a strategic sense for Israel,(after an initial tactical loss) this was not your goal. Maybe history will cut you some slack on that point. But after January 2006 (see Barbarians at the Gates) and your continuing to seek ways of supporting Fatah, all the while knowing that at least in Gaza the Fatah gang was on borrowed time may have appeared in your eyes as an act of loyalty, it was, in reality counter-productive and lacking in reason. The thoughtful thing to do was to cut your losses, concentrate on Yosh and give lip service to Gaza. But you were convinced by arabians who live to avoid humiliation that Gaza was salvagable. This was not true.

I guess one could argue that today's split between Gaza and Yosh was predictable. Maybe this was the reason why Foggy Bottom was opposed to the unilateral Israeli withdrawal from Gaza. The Gaza war would have occurred whether or not Jews were living in a small bloc in ancient Israeli soil. But the withdrawal opened the door for the conflict to begin in earnest. Was this Sharon's goal? Maybe. Was it worth the cost? no, not really because the barbarians would have fought over the money and guns anyhow.

The biggest news of the day has been the claims by Hamas that files, pictures and data that was captured from Fatah "prove" the support given by the US from the CIA and Israel. Well, duh. Since the US support for Abu Mazen has been stated policy, why does this surprise anyone? But for the barbarians all this means is more fun; new collaborators to kill and maim.

What Words Offend Arabs? The Truth.

Children's Poetry Booklet Recalled After Arabs Complain
(Israeli censorship kowtows to Arabs.
When Will We Tell The Truth Without Fear)

(IsraelNN.com 7 Sivan 5768/June 10, '08) Ynet's web site and Arab complaints against a ten-year-old boy's poem about terrorists has resulted in the recall of all of the Nes Ziona municipality's children's poetry booklets.

Ynet boasts that its coverage of the poem resulted in its being recalled.

The text of the poem (Ynet's translation):

Ahmed's bunker has surprises galore: Grenades, rifles are hung on the wall. Ahmed is planning another bombing!What a bunker Ahmed has, who causes daily harm.Ahmed knows how to make a bomb. Ahmed is Ahmed, that's who he is, so don't forget to be careful of him.We get blasted while they have a blast!Ahmed and his friends could be wealthy and sunny, if only they wouldn't buy rockets with all their money.

Poetry competition director Marika Berkowitz, who published the booklet, was surprised at the protests and told Ynet: "This is the boy's creation and this is what he wanted to express. Of course there should be a limit, but I think the there is no racism here. 'Ahmed' is a general term for the enemy. These are the murmurings of an innocent child."

The Education Ministry told Ynet: "The local authority that published the booklet should have guided the students in a more correct manner through the schools. The district will investigate the issue with the local authorities."
