Criticizing Israel and Backing Abbas

It's like criticizing Dorothy and being in favor of the wicked witch of the East

 Abbas's Fatah Palestine Authority has been dallying around with a marriage to Hamas for several years and finally, as his 80th birthday is now closer on March 26th, Abbas did it.  He united with the terrorist group, Hamas, listed as terrorists even in the United States.  By doing this, Fatah has accepted the Hamas charter which is about the same as the Muslim Brotherhood charter, and that is to destroy Israel and kill Jews.

 From their charter under article 6.
: “The Day of Judgement will not come about until Moslems
fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide
behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O
Moslems, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and
kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, (evidently a certain kind
of tree) would not do that because it is one of the trees of
the Jews” (related by al-Bukhari and Moslem).

The Islamic Resistance Movement is a distinguished
Palestinian movement, whose allegiance is to Allah, and whose
way of life is Islam. It strives to raise the banner of Allah
over every inch of Palestine,
While Hamas rules Gaza, the Palestine Authority is based in Judea and Samaria, called the West Bank by Jordan, while Israel, created on May 14, 1948, sits between.  Abbas has been given millions of dollars by his Arab friends but has not used any of it to pay for such things as electric or water utilities, and of course their people are not into developing businesses.  The business of Hamas has been to bomb Israel with mortars, rockets and missiles.  Of late they have also dug intricate tunnels that lead to Israel in order to attack and do such things as kidnap people for ransom or to kill the masses.

It's been up to Israel to take on the humane task of supplying utilities to their enemies, and I say enemies because  the Palestinians will not recognize Israel's right to  exist and half or more are known terrorists.  Instead these Arabs have developed a culture of hate and destruction against the Jews.  Hamas was a Fatah group who broke away from the main party in order to be more violent towards Israel.  They have brought on the final decision by Israel to intercede with Operation Protective Edge this past summer.  After all the wars against Israel of 1948, 1956, 1967, 1973 and the rest, the Arabs realize they will not win against the feisty Jews.

They have now decided an attack by the PA President Mahmoud Abbas's decision to apply for Palestinian membership to the International Criminal Court called the ICC since they have received the nod from so many like Sweden  to be a state. What they intend to do is something like sue Israel for defending themselves against their aggression.  With this topsy- turvy world of  antagonism against the Jewish state,  the collective world logic today is against Israel no matter how illogical their reasons are.

 Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on January 4th that "Israel will not sit idly by" while the PA opts "for a confrontation with the state of Israel.  We will not allow the Palestinians to drag IDF soldiers and commanders to the International Criminal Court in The Hague, Netanyahu said.  He went on to explain that it was the PA who made an alliance with Hamas war criminals and it is they who should be held accountable by the ICC.

  Israel has  decided to halt the scheduled transfer of $127 million dollars in tax revenue to the Palestinian Authority after learning of their decision to apply for Palestinian membership in the International Criminal Court.  The USA criticized Israel's decision to suspend the Palestinian tax transfer.

Maybe the USA doesn't realize that the Palestinians are  bad customers who do not pay their bills. It looks like its people do not work so its up to their government to supply utilities.  On December 12, 2012, it was recorded that Under interim peace deals, Israel collects some $100 million a month in duties on behalf of the Palestinian Authority in the Judea-Samaria areas -- money that is badly needed to pay public sector salaries.  Israel has already withheld the December transfer, saying the money would be used to start paying off $200 million the Palestinians owe the Israel Electric Corporation. Israel has previously frozen payments to the Palestinian Authority during times of heightened security and diplomatic tensions, provoking strong international criticism, such as when the U.N. cultural body UNESCO granted the Palestinians full membership a year ago on October 31, 2011. 

It was known in January 2014 that Israel had to take $55 million from the Palestinian tax revenue for past due bills.  Again they also had to take $25 million to cover more unpaid debs of a Palestinian electric company.  Another $25 million was taken by Israel to cover other debts that never are taken care of.  Israel took $30 million shekels to cover the cost of the Palestinian patients that were referred to Israeli hospitals.  No, they accumulate debts but never bother to  pay them.  Perhaps they are so used to the USA and other rich Arab countries to just give them money that they have no regard for it.   To this day, the USA is giving them money.  If it were not for the fact that Israel holds this tax revenue collecting, which is collateral on their unpaid bills, they could not be doing such things as supplying electricity.  

Abbas has done many irritating things to Israel, so it's been a war between Israel and these Arabs without using regular arms. In April 2014  "Abbas responded to Israel's not finishing the release of about 24 Palestinian killers by signing the 15 global treaties, including the Geneva Conventions on the conduct of war and occupations, on behalf of the State of Palestine, a defiant move that surprised Washington and angered Israel. The Arabs had refused to extend talks past the April 29th deadline.  It's always tit for tat all along."  
It's whitewashing Fatah as a political group willing to make peace with Israel that nations have accomplished.  Fatah was started with Yasser Arafat (August 24, 1929-November 11, 2004) who was one of the worst of terrorists.  Mahmoud Abbas, though more educated and younger (March 26, 1935) has his idol's same views but has opted for more subtle attacks but just as volatile and deceitful. Notice he goes along with not recognizing Israel.   Abbas has no authority.  His term expired on January 9, 2009.  He's under the thumb of Hamas as a puppet leader.
