Palestinian Authority Terrorists Fired 516 Rockets at Israel

The good news is that these are “our terrorists”, the ones that we’re funding with taxpayer money and providing training for. The bad news is that they’re still terrorists.

Several armed groups belonging to Fatah in the Gaza Strip claimed Saturday that they had also fired various types of rockets and missiles at Israel during Operation Pillar of Defense.

A spokesman for the groups, which are affiliated with Fatah’s armed wing, the Aksa Martyrs’ Brigade, told reporters that his men fired 516 rockets and missiles at Israel during the conflict.

The spokesman warned that the Fatah groups would “continue to defend the heroic Palestinian people against Israeli crimes and massacres.”

According to the spokesman, Fatah gunmen fought alongside members of other groups in the Gaza Strip during the recent escalation.

Fatah is for all intents and purposes, the Palestinian Authority. The Palestinian Authority is the second state in what politicians and pundits call the Two State Solution. The difference between the Palestinian Authority and Hamas is that one of them is wholly subsidized by America and Europe.

Just to add to the schizophrenia, the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades is listed as an FTO, Foreign Terrorist Group, by the State Department, which directs huge amounts of money to its parent organization.

    "Fatah gunmen fought alongside other groups during the recent escalation." What does that mean? If there was no ground invasion, who were they fighting? Who were they shooting at? Were they launching missiles at Israel, after the IAF planes withdrew? I guess that's what Hamas means by the phrase "battle experience."

      The conflict between Arabs and Jews goes back to the birth of Isaac, the son of covenant, and Ishmael, who God said would be …..

    So the PLO wants to be an also ran, but into the picture for credits, that shows real class,
    class of criminal mind. Idiots can kill and so they are a danger and must be put into a place
    where they are disarmed and under the control of a strong power and I guess that leaves
    Israel as no one is jumping at the chance to do so. Unless Obama will be beneficient and
    go talk with them or send his shaman Clinton to sooth the beasts. Lunacy prevails. Shakespear
    Henry VI "first thing is we kill all of the lawyers"——now in this age "first thing is we
    kill all of the media"………..then maybe a good beginning is had……………………William

    The US State Department employees and Obama should all be charged with murder for CONTINUING delivering weapons and money to the PLO long after the point where it is obvious to all but the most OBTUSE career parasitic diplomat, politician and news writers that they are not peace partners.
    We should go and locate the career State Department parasites who resurrected Arafat in the early 90s and enabled him to launch to launch more war against Israel after the "godfather of 20th century terrorism" had been defeated. I would personally hang them from the highest tree if ordered by Congress or a court.
    And I would delight in each and every second.
