Arming The Enemy
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has urgently requested an infusion of emergency funds and military weapons in order to help his Fatah Party defeat Iranian backed Hamas. The goal of Abbas is to retake Gaza after Hamas took it from him during a recent skirmish. On the surface the request for aid may seem reasonable, but let’s take a look at why it is just another testament to the folly of US foreign policy.
The first thing we must recognize is that Fatah and Hamas are both terrorist organizations. Knowing this, why is the US and Europe sending military and financial aid to terrorist? It’s certainly no secret that the US has sent a tide of arms to the Palestinians in the past, so where are these weapons today? Why do they need more? The answer is these weapons are now in the hands of Hamas and Iran.
“We informed you many times we would obtain American arms brought to Gaza in the conspiracy against our government and we inform you that Hamas is now swimming in American weapons. We have no worries about running out of weapons or ammunition thanks to your American government.” Abu Abdullah – Hamas Spokesman
Hamas proved this claim by brandishing American assault rifles, rocket propelled grenades, rocket launchers and ammunition all of which had been provided to Fatah.
What is the US going to do about it? Give more weapons to the same guys who let the last batch fall into the hands of one of the worlds most brutal terrorist organizations? Apparently so. Even now the US and Europe are making arrangements to transfer emergency aid to Abbas in an effort to help him secure the west bank. Not surprising Israel is also being asked to make concessions to the Palestinian Authority in the west bank to help Abbas boost his non-existent credibly.
Now we must ask, who exactly is receiving this aid? President Mahmoud Abbas is the world’s first global terrorist. He is responsible for instituting and perfecting airline hijackings and the Munich massacre. Now though his actions, he has allowed advanced US weapons to fall into the hands of Hamas and Iran.
At this point we might ask the question, why did Fatah have these weapons in the first place? I’m sure the US soldiers destined to die by these weapons would like an explanation. There is a time for compassion and there is a time for sober thought. To send more aid to these people is a travesty.
On your quest for wisdom you must understand that we learn from history that man learns nothing from history. The leaders of the west have minds that can not perceive truth even when it’s in their own best interest. What else can we conclude when the actions of those in high places continue to arm the enemy before a battle.
