“Concessions” to Fatah will benefit Hamas

Ted Belman

Get this. In an article in the Daily Telegraph,we are told that Abbas described Hamas as ‘murderous terrorists’ intent on creating an “empire of darkness and injustice.”

There is no dialogue to be initiated with those murderers,” Mr. Abbas said in his first public addressed since Hamas gunmen seized control of the Gaza Strip last week. His uncharacteristically fiery speech raised concerns that the confrontation between the Islamist group Hamas and Mr. Abbas’s more moderate Fatah Party could escalate.

Mr. Abbas said the separation of Gaza from the West Bank was a threat to hopes for a Palestinian state, and accused Gaza militias of taking money “from many parties in many directions” for their “malicious desire to establish an empire of darkness and injustice.”

“It’s a fight between the national project and this small kingdom they want to establish in Gaza, the kingdom of Gaza, between those who are using assassination and killing to achieve their goals, and those who are using the rules of law,” he said.

So why then does he demand concessions from Israel for greater freedom of movement in the West Bank. These concessions would only make Hamas a bigger threat. Where’s the logic?

  1. Western logic is not part of the Palestinian and pro-Palestinian thought process. Illogically however, many Westerners and Western leaders tolerate, if not accept that such Palestinian illogic is logical.

    Go figure!
