Fatah: Collaborationist Israeli Ally - by Stephen Lendman


At least since the Oslo Accords, Fatah has served Israel more than its own people. On August 25, Haaretz highlighted the latest example, headling "PA arrests dozens of Hamas, Islamic Jihad militants in West Bank," saying, a PA source confirmed dozens made, including "high ranking officials in (both) organizations."


On September 6, PA Prime Minister Salam Fayyad said hundreds were made in response to the killings of four West Bank settlers, adding, "The decision to carry out the attack was politically motivated and intended to embarrass the Palestinian Authority."


True or not, those affected included teachers, traders, workers, students, professionals, and imams, unrelated to the incident, Fatah's Preventive Security Services and General Intelligence Services doing Israel's dirty work, while President Mahmoud Abbas collaborates during the latest sham peace talks.


Hamas responded harshly, urging supporters resist arrest by confronting PA police with force, accusing President Mahmoud Abbas of betraying his own people by "collaborating with the Occupation." Its sources also said 750 West Bank Hamas members and leaders were arrested, many tortured, and prevented from seeing their families.


On September 9, detainee relatives issued a joint statement saying Israeli intelligence officers are participating in interrogations - senior officers from Maskobeh, Askalan, Petah Tikwa, and Jalama detention centers, supervising investigations at Al-Khalil, Nablus and Ramallah jails.


The statement also cited torture, saying 32 detainees were hospitalized since Ramadan began because of mistreatment. Further, it said Fatah arrested 920 Palestinians since August 11, most of them since the four killings, Hamas' al-Qassam Brigades claiming full responsibility, calling them:


"normal and legal response(s) to Zionist aggressions on the Palestinian civilians (and) part of the repelling operations against the occupation assaults on the Gaza Strip and West Bank."
