Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh called the US an "enemy of Islam," an Iranian news agency reported on Wednesday. Yes, according to him the US is doing everything we can to keep Hamas-led Palestinian government from succeeding politically. Blah blah blah
We are "influenced by the Zionist lobby" and want to "attack Muslims" and we are wrong that there might be a "civil war between Hamas and Fatah".
In another incident demonstrating tension in the Palestinian Authority, a Palestinian man suspected of collaborating with Israel was publicly executed on Tuesday by Al Aksa Martyrs' Brigades gunmen. The man, Jafal Abu Tzrur, was accused of informing Israeli security service of the whereabouts of three fugitives. The three were later killed by the IDF. source
Haniyeh also said "around 40,000 of the 160,000-strong workforce should receive pay packets in the coming days while the remainder would be given loans to tide them over." Where will the cash come from? Possibly the United Nations? Yes.
Caroline B. Glick isn't very happy with Abbas' proposed 'peace plan'.
Abbas's plan has two central components. First, he wants to get the PA's Hamas government to accept the document authored by convicted murderers and attempted murderers. Second, Abbas wants Israel to allow him to raise, arm and field a new militia with 10,000 soldiers to supplement the 20,000 soldiers Abbas already hired in the lead-up to the Palestinian elections in January. ...
But just the barest scrutiny shows that what the jailed terrorists announced was nothing more than a new restatement of their declaration of war against Israel and a recommitment to their goal of destroying the Jewish State. ...
Far from calling for an end to terrorism, the terrorists called for the establishment of a new joint terrorist organization called the "Popular Resistance Front" that is to be composed of Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Fatah terrorists. As they put it in their declaration, this new group's job will be "to lead and engage in resistance against the occupation and to unify and coordinate action and resistance and to form a unified political reference for the front." source
Israel demands Hamas leaders quit party or leave
Israel issued an ultimatum to the four most senior Hamas politicians from East Jerusalem: leave the faction or leave the city. The Interior Minister, Ronnie Bar-On, announced in a television interview ... will have their residency rights revoked unless they renounce Hamas membership. source
The minister, Khaled abu Arafa, and the three backbenchers, Mohammed Abu Tir, Ahmed Abu Atoun and Mahmoud Totach, all have the blue identity cards issued by Israel to Palestinians in the Arab eastern sector of the city. "You will either resign or you won't be with us," Mr Bar-On said. East Jerusalem IDs allow the holders to travel within Israel and entitles them to some benefits, like health care, provided by the Israel state.source
Another day in Israel and Palestine just means more confusion, more terrorism, and no peace.
