Hamas, Fatah, alles dasselbe

Es ist sehr zu wünschen, dass die Palästinenser der israelischen Armee die Arbeit abnehmen und sich gegenseitig schwächen. Würde ein Machtkampf zwischen Fatah und Hamas ausbrechen, würden die beiden Organisationen sich gegenseitig schwächen.

Allerdings wird es dazu nicht kommen. Hamas und Fatah haben eines Gemeinsam und das ist der Antisemitismus. Wenn es darum geht, wie ein palästinensischer Staat aussehen soll, vertritt man zwar entgegengesetzte Auffassungen, aber im Hass auf die Juden ist man sich einig. Dies illustriert zum Beispiel die Folgende Meldung:

The possibility of attacks on Israel by Fatah members is currently the Israel Defense Forces' main concern. The army, nevertheless, is also preparing for possible revenge attacks by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine following Israel's removal of five senior PFLP members from the Jericho jail on Tuesday.

According to IDF sources, there had been a distinct deterioration in the security situation in the West Bank even before Israel's raid on the Jericho jail, and much of this deterioration was due to the growing involvement of Fatah members - including some who serve in the Palestinian Authority security services - in attacks on Israelis.

Partly because of this deterioration, the defense establishment decided yesterday to leave the closure on the territories in place until after the Israeli elections on March 28. The closure was initially imposed only for the duration of this week's three-day Purim holiday.

A senior General Staff officer told Haaretz yesterday that Fatah and Hamas had recently switched roles. According to officer, Hamas is currently refraining from attacks, and its leaders have even rejected operatives' proposals for revenge attacks following the Jericho raid. In contrast, Fatah is now vying with Islamic Jihad for the title of the leading perpetrator of attacks in recent weeks. Thus far, however, it is sticking to attacks in the territories and eschewing attacks inside Israel.

Palestinians Humiliate Themselves

In a March 16 editorial in the New York Times titled, As If That Fire Needed Fuel, the Times writes:

"Israeli Army officials ordered inmates to strip to their underwear [see photo below], which many did, marching out with clothing on their heads, an embarrassing and completely unnecessary provocation that trampled the dignity of any Palestinian watching that spectacle.

Given the humiliations that ordinary Palestinians suffer merely by trying to get through Israeli checkpoints every day, the prison raid just reinforced the already degrading reality of living under foreign occupation."

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas stated, “What happened without a doubt is an ugly crime which can not be forgiven and a humiliation for the Palestinian people.”

Palesinians should feel humiliated. A majority of Palestinians living in the West Bank, Gaza, and Jerusalem support suicide terrorism. A 2001 poll by Dr. Nabil Kukali and the Palestinian Center for Public Opinion (PCPO), found, "a substantial majority [of Palestinians] (76.1%) support suicidal attacks like that of Netanya [in May, 2001], whereas 12.5% oppose, and 11.4% express no opinion." A 2006 poll taken by the Jerusalem Media & Communication Center after the recent Hamas political victories found, “56.2% [of Palestinians] strongly or somewhat support suicide bombing operations against Israeli civilians whereas 40.7% oppose such operations.”

Considering that the majority of Palestinians support suicide terror, and considering that Israel prevents suicide killings on a daily basis, it should come as no surprise that captured Palestinians are asked to remove their clothes during the process of incarceration. Why should any Israeli take a chance of being blown up? Why should Israel present Palestinians with opportunities to commit suicide killings?

Palestinians should feel humiliated about their culture of death and they should be asked to strip naked during the process of incarceration as long as their population continues to support, condone, and commit suicide killings.
