Rice's Legacy?

So what happened to Condi Rice?

The time has come for establishing a Palestinian state and it’s in the interest of the U.S. to do so, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Monday in one of her most forceful statements yet on the issue.

Really? Even after the stellar job they did when Israel handed over Gaza to them? Even though a terrorist organisation that is part of the ruling Fatah party (Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades) continues to try to kill Israelis?

As an aside, don't you think it's the very height of hypocrisy for the US government (and others) to not view Fatah as a terrorist organisation but to only apply that designation to their armed factions? Even though Fatah has publicly declared that the Brigades are a part of Fatah? Let that sink in for a moment: Fatah themselves admit that terrorist murderers are a part of their organisation- and yet they've still received money, arms and training from the US government. Bush's government that has allegedly declared war on terrorism.

"Moderate" Fatah's logo by the way is of a map of "Palestine" i.e. present day Israel, Gaza and the West Bank, overlaid with hands gripping rifles and a grenade. Does Rice or anyone at State really believe that these terrorist thugs will be happy with whatever land they get now- or do they know in their hearts that Fatah et al will use it to launch further attacks against the remainder of Israel and demand even more? I suspect this must be the case- either that or they are too stupid to be working as international diplomats- and yet they still go through with this disgraceful charade of appeasing terrorist murderers.
