A Defending Crusader…

The best defense is to be good and offensive…or something like that.

If this isn’t the pinnacle of stupidity, I don’t know what is.


JERUSALEM (AP) – Israel will free 250 Palestinian prisoners later this week—nearly all of them from the Fatah faction of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, a spokesman for the Israeli prime minister said Monday. The prisoner release, intended to bolster Abbas in his struggle against the Islamic militant Hamas, will take place on Friday, said Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s spokesman, Jacob Galanti. He said 85 percent of the prisoners would come from Abbas’ Fatah faction, with the remainder coming from smaller Palestinian parties. None will come from Hamas, he said.

Wow…good thing they’re keeping those crazy Hamas fighters, and only releasing Fatah guys.  Because Fatah is so, you know, MODERATE.  A look at the Fatah constitution proves this…right?

Update:  It just keeps getting better…In today’s New York Sun:

The list of Palestinian Arabs granted amnesty this weekend by Prime Minister Olmert of Israel is composed of members of President Abbas’s Fatah Party and includes almost the entire senior West Bank leadership of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, The New York Sun has learned.

The Al-Aqsa Brigades, Fatah‘s self-declared military wing, have taken responsibility for every suicide bombing in Israel the past three years.

The Fatah Constitution (1964)

Dear brother, comrade of the struggle:

This movement is a patriotic and historical responsibility which we all must shoulder honestly… And let’s inspire all those who are faithful to Palestine with this concerted, patriotic deed… We all must confront critical times, and tolerate mishaps patiently… We all must sacrifice ourselves, our effort and time; these are the weapons of honest patriots.  Long live Palestine, a free Arab state.

The Movement’s Essential Principles

Article (1) Palestine is part of the Arab World, and the Palestinian people are part of the Arab Nation, and their struggle is part of its struggle.

Article (3) The Palestinian Revolution plays a leading role in liberating Palestine.  

Article (4) The Palestinian struggle is part and parcel of the world-wide struggle against Zionism, colonialism and international imperialism.  

Article (5) Liberating Palestine is a national obligation which necessities the materialistic and human support of the Arab Nation.  

Article (6) UN projects, accords and resolutions, or those of any individual which undermine the Palestinian people’s right in their homeland are illegal and rejected.  

Article (7) The Zionist Movement is racial, colonial and aggressive in ideology, goals, organisation and method.  

Article (8) The Israeli existence in Palestine is a Zionist invasion with a colonial expansive base, and it is a natural ally to colonialism and international imperialism.  


Article (12) Complete liberation of Palestine, and eradication of Zionist economic, political, military and cultural existence.  


Article (17) Armed public revolution is the inevitable method to liberating Palestine.  

Article (18) Entire dependence on the Palestinian people which is the pedestal forefront and on the Arab Nation as a partner in the fight, and realising actual interaction between the Arab Nation and the Palestinian people by involving the Arab people in the fight through a united Arab front.  

Article (19) Armed struggle is a strategy and not a tactic, and the Palestinian Arab People’s armed revolution is a decisive factor in the liberation fight and in uprooting the Zionist existence, and this struggle will not cease unless the Zionist state is demolished and Palestine is completely liberated.  

Article (22) Opposing any political solution offered as an alternative to demolishing the Zionist occupation in Palestine, as well as any project intended to liquidate the Palestinian case or impose any international mandate on its people.  

Article (23) Maintaining relations with Arab countries with the objective of developing the positive aspects in their attitudes with the proviso that the armed struggle is not negatively affected.  

Article (24) Maintaining relations with all liberal forces supporting our just struggle in order to resist together Zionism and imperialism.  

Article (25) Convincing concerned countries in the world to prevent Jewish immigration to Palestine as a method of solving the problem.  

Yeah…great idea, Mr. Olmert.
