EVEN THE GUARDIAN NO LONGER BUYS THE EXCUSES FOR ANTI-ISRAELI VIOLENCE
'Frustrated' militants rocket Israel reads the Guardian headline. It goes on to report that
Earlier yesterday a senior member of the Palestinian Liberation Organisation, Qais Abu Leila, said gunmen were clashing with the Palestinian security forces in the West Bank and Gaza Strip almost daily, and added:"There is a very real chance that this could spill over into attacks against Israel."
He was echoed by the local government minister, Ahmed Ghnaim, who is seen as a representative of the younger Fatah members, including the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade.
"There is a feeling of frustration and people are faced with two options, either to carry out acts of frustration against their own society or [to take action] against Israel," he said.
Last week about 20 Fatah gunmen opened fire on the Palestinian government head quarters in Ramallah and attacked several restaurants.
The Palestinian police made no attempt to stop them and no one has been arrested.
Violence is rare in Ramallah but widespread in other Palestinian cities. The gunmen, who are all wanted by Israel, said they were angry with the Palestinian Authority for not keeping its promise to guarantee their security in return for declaring a ceasefire.
Well, the times they're a changing. There paper actually reports on Fatah in fighting and the fact that Israel's role is to absorb their violence.
If the IRA have been revealed as the bulies they are; Can their"militant" PA cousins be far behing?
