Letter to the Editor of the Day: U.S.-Preferred Fatah Still Endorses Terrorism

By Debbie Schlussel
Remember President Bush’s statement that “You’re either on our side or the terrorists’ side.” Well, we now know he’s on the terrorists’ side, not ours. With his dual bend-over for terrorists–both $80 million in American tax dollar aid from Clueless Condi for Arafat’s Fatah, and yesterday’s suck-up to the pan-terrorist, extremist OIC (Organization of the Islamic Conference) to which Bush will now send an envoy–you think of those rushing the Animal House frat:

Thank you, sir, may I have another?

Gadi Dotz has an excellent letter to the editor in today’s Wall Street Journal, challenging both the Journal reporters and the Bush conventional propaganda on Fatah and what the group really stands for. It is such a great letter I reprint it here. Mazel Tov [Congrats!], Gadi:

What’s Changed?: Fatah Terrorists Still Terrorists

Fatah’s Constitution Calls for Zionist “Eradication”
June 28, 2007
The analysis of the conflict between rival Palestinian Arab factions and Fatah in the June 16 commentary “Hot Topic: Hamas in Gaza: What Does It Mean?” was informative, but contained one error. Nick Timiraos writes that Fatah “has acknowledged Israel’s right to exist.” To this very day, the group’s official constitution, available in English on their Web site, calls for the “Complete liberation of Palestine, and eradication of Zionist economic, political, military and cultural existence” (Article 12) through “armed struggle” (Article 19).
In your editorial “Hot Topic: Arafat’s Children” in the same issue, you correctly identify Fatah’s erstwhile leader Yasser Arafat as an unreformed terrorist who deceived the West by calling for peace while continuing his support of suicide bombings. For this deception he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, which was, ironically, stolen from his Gaza City home by Hamas terrorists.
Unfortunately, the U.S. is committing the same mistake today by empowering Mahmoud Abbas, who has repeatedly pledged to follow in Arafat’s path. Abbas, who wrote his Ph.D. thesis denying the Holocaust, has mastered his mentor’s art of doublespeak, telling the West he recognizes Israel while at the same time telling his people the complete opposite in Arabic. On Oct. 3, 2006, Mr. Abbas stated on Al-Arabiya and PA TV that “It is not required of Hamas, or of Fatah, or of the Popular Front to recognize Israel.”

America’s chosen terrorists–Fatah–are no different than Al-Qaeda. Too bad the Bush Administration creates nuances and distinctions without a difference to confer Most Favored Terrorist status upon them.

This is nothing new.
Pres Bush has failed repeatedly to consistently apply his on doctrine (“with us or against, to seek out terrorists and their supporters, blah blah blah”).
Arafat was a terrorist when he was alive, and yet he was allowed to die a peaceful death in his sleep.
When Israel was attacked last summer and their soldiers kidnapped (and are still being held captive) what did Pres Bush do? He chose not to live up to his doctrine.
Not to mention the many rockets leaving Gaza and landing in Israel. What is the anti-terror protector president doing about that?
Pres Bush talks of Al Qaeda coming into Iraq, specifically Al Anbar Province. Did you happen to notice what country with Sunni Wahabi extremists, the same sect as Bin Laden, borders Al Anbar province? Yep, the same country where Bin Laden comes from.
And, why haven’t we got Bin Laden’s head on a stick yet? He’s had about the same amount of time that Clinton had, but Clinton did not have an army there in hot pursuit.
There are terrorists offices (Hezbollah, et al)in Damascus, and they are not being torched … excuse me, touched.
Yet, we go after Padilla, a bunch of other knuckleheads in Florida who want to bomb the Sears Tower for the promise of recieving boots, and other lower level nincompoops who may, or may not, pose an extreme threat.
Pres Bush has never been consistent and uses the war on terror for his own advancement. Maybe more so than Democrats. His lip service to GWOT is rhetorical pablum, when he won’t take the obvious and necessary steps to deal with GWOT.
Pres Bush proves yet again that he is an ‘all hat and no cattle cowboy’ on GWOT.
**I’ve posted it before and I’ll do it again. Let them kill each other and have Allah sort them out. It will make dealing with the remainder that less difficult.**

All the muslims are our enemies. We apparently can’t do anything about the Palestinians for the same reasons we can’t do anything about the Iranians; we need the oil and we can’t afford to disrupt things more. So we espouse an asinine desire to “talk” to Iran, or Syria, the same way we pretend to “talk” with the Palestinians. It just demonstrates how weak we are. We should just declare war on all the muslims and take their oil. We should be best friends with Russia, and Europe, and just take ALL the damn oil.
