Fatah Arrests

More proof, if any were needed, that the plan by the US to fund, train and even arm Fatah (they recently gave them RPGs, assault rifles and a half million rounds of ammunition) was a terrible idea. The IDF raided a Fatah building and carried out arrests-

“The army arrested 18 Palestinians wanted for attacks and attempted kidnappings of Israeli soldiers and civilians,” an army spokesman said, adding that weapons and explosives were also seized. “Basically everyone in the building was taken for questioning, just to make sure they were not involved in the activities of those wanted 18,” he said.

An Israeli security source said those arrested “were using the infrastructure of the Palestinian security services as a base to carry out their operations.”

The Palestinian Authority knew this and did nothing to fight their terrorist activities,” the source said.

So much for the "moderate" Fatah meme that has infected Washington.
