Hamas ambushed a convoy in the Gaza Strip on Sunday and seized a stockpile of US weapons transferred in recent months to militias associated with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah party, according to Hamas and Fatah sources.

“We obtained the US weapons and will keep hijacking any assistance the Americans provide to Fatah. Our fighters are aware of the American and Israeli conspiracies to topple our government. We’re trained and well prepared to defeat the American-backed (Palestinian) agents,” said a top
member of Hamas’ military wing in the Gaza Strip.

According to Israeli and Palestinian security officials and Hamas sources, Hamas militias have taken almost complete control of the northern Gaza Strip in recent months, including areas from which rockets are regularly launched from the territory into nearby Jewish communities.

  1. Sending weapons to Fatah to fight against Hezbollah is a bad idea. Those weapons will only be used by either Fatah or Hamas against Israelis or against Americans.

    A better idea would be for Israel to send the IDF into Gaza and the West Bank and destroy Hamas and Fatah. The best thing for the Americans to do would be to STAY OUT OF ISRAEL’S WAY, however, if we MUST be involved a good use for American weapons would be to assist the Israeli Air Force in providing air support for the IDF. If we MUST commit ground forces. They can fight along side the Israelis.

    After Hamas, Fatah, and the entire Palestinian Authority are obliterated, the Israelis can end the “refugee problem” by relocating the Palestinians to Jordan. Jordan is the true “Palestinian” state.

    After 911, had I been the American President, I would have sent the US Armed Forces in to obliterate the Taliban. We once thought Bin Laden was in Tora Bora. At a minimum, we should have surrounded the region with significantly more troops rather than out sourcing much of the work to the locals. If this failed, we should have been willing to consider nuking the entire region. This would have taken out Bin Laden and a whole lot of anti-American slime balls. After Afghainstan, I would have provided whatever assistance to the Israelis that they needed to obliterate the Palesinian Authority and all of the “Palestinian” terrorist organizations. While Iraq was and is a threat, the Palestinian Authority was always a greater threat than Iraq. This would have been a better place to go after Afghanistan rather than to go to Iraq. An invasion of Iraq probably would have been necessary, at some point, however, the PA should have been a higher priority.

    American weapons or weapons from any Western nation to Fatah is a BAD IDEA!!
