Arming one’s enemies.

By Ted Belman

U.S.-backed Fatah training Hamas forces reports Aaron Klien.

Militia members on the payroll of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah organization have been training Hamas police units in the Gaza Strip, WND has learned.

The information comes shortly after the U.S. announced large sums of aid to Fatah and initiated military training programs for West Bank Fatah militias purportedly to back Abbas’ group against Hamas and to isolate Hamas in the Gaza Strip and West Bank.

The US policy, long in place, of training and arming the terrorists in the territories, from time to time, met with some opposition. It should have been met with outrage and a firm nyet.

To believe that these forces will protect us, rather than attack us, is to believe that black is white. To view such a policy as an error in judgment is to ignore the obvious; that it is intended to weaken us.
