Latest Terrorist Bombing In Israel Gives Insight Into Fatah

You may have heard of terrorist bombing in Eilat, Israel, the other day. (You can view a video of the explosion here) Three Israelis were killed along with the suicide bomber. It was the first successful suicide bombing in Israel in nine months.

Several terrorist groups claimed joint credit for the attack, prominant among them was the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade. This group is, of course, the terrorist arm of the Fatah political party that began as Yasser Arafat's PLO and is now headed by the so-called "moderate" President Abbas of the Palestinian Authority. Fatah is the group that, unlike Hamas, we are expected to trust. Israel has recently agreed to release 100 million dollars in tax collections to Fatah and another recent agreement will be providing ammunition, etc. to Fatah as well . . . supposedly to help them counter-balance the military power of Hamas.

An internet release from Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade not only claims responsitibility for the attack but imiplies (in translation) that this may be just the first of many such attacks as they seek to "start the implementation of the support of the Palestinian people."

Even more important to note is the statement that the attack ". . . also comes in response to Tendes Aqsa Mosque, stressing that continued resistance until the liberation of the entire territory of Palestine, and to repel the occupiers irreversibly." (emphasis added)

What this means, of course, is that the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade (and Fatah) plan on keeping up this type of "resistance" until Israel no longer exists at all.

Keep this in mind the next time you hear talks of "peace" and "two-state solutions" from representatives of Fatah.

Personally, I believe that actions speak louder than words. In this case, at least, the words and the actions mutually support each other in a frightening way. It is, as usual, a way that does not bode well for any prospects of peace in Palestine any time soon.

    Nice job, BoP.

    You hit the very important point that this is the outfit that Olmert is supposed to strengthen, and that the Americans keep heaping praise on.

    This is why you hear me continually call for the destruction of the terrorists and their murder – all of them – so that decent law abiding Arabs can try to live their lives in peace.

    That is also why you continually hear me call for ditching the criminal regime in Jerusalem. They sell us out every single day they are in office.

    Peace will only be possible when the terrorists are all dead. But it will also only be possible when the criminals on government hill have been thrown out and a Jewish regime takes over.

    Without the two conditions above fulfilled, there will only be death and more death in this region.
