Olmert to arm Fatah, Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade

The news is once again growing worse for Israel. Concessionist Prime Minister Ehud Olmert announced today that he has approved sending military arms to the Fatah terrorist network, which includes the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, despite the fact that they have over the years launched hundreds of deadly terrorist attacks and suicide bombings against Jewish civilians, and still calls for the destruction of the State of Israel in their charter.

The scenario that Olmert hopes will happen is that Fatah will use the weapons against Hamas, defeat them, and then be so grateful to Israel for this "good will gesture" that they will befriend the Jews and agree to make peace. No, I'm not kidding.

Arutz Sheva - Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has approved the shipment of armaments to strengthen the forces of PA chief Mahmoud Abbas and his Fatah terrorist organization.

Olmert’s decision effectively positions Israel on the side of Fatah in its conflict with the Hamas, the Islamic terrorist organization which governs the Palestinian Authority. That conflict over control of the PA has brought the two groups to the brink of civil war.

Fatah’s new weapons will be supplied by Egypt and Jordan and shipped to Fatah forces, including Abbas’s presidential guard, via Israel.

An aide to Olmert quoted by Reuters said, “He approved the delivery of a certain amount of weaponry to Abu Mazen's (Abbas's) presidential guard in order to bolster him so he can fulfil his obligations." The aide did not specify which obligations the weapons would help Abbas fulfill.

Providing weapons to Arab terrorist factions in the PA is a controversial issue in Israeli domestic politics. Arming the Fatah to fight the Hamas was one of the key ideas on which the Oslo accords were based.

It's like funding Al Qaida to help defeat Hizbullah. How many Jews will be killed by these arms Olmert is shipping to the PLO? Scary to think what has become of Israel that they've resorted to outsourcing terrorist armies, that seek Israel's destruction, to wage the battles they are now too scared to fight themselves. It's as low as it gets, and a sign of how weak Israel's resolve has become.
