The Problem is Fatah

We keep hearing that the problem with the Palestinian Authority is its unity coalition with Hamas. Is that really so?

The Palestinian Authority (the PA), under the leadership of Mahmud Abbas's Fatah organization, has been paying substantial salaries to terrorists since the year 2000.

As of May 2011, the Fatah-led PA was distributing a total of over five million dollars monthly to terrorist prisoners. Let's not forget - The PA is an equal opportunity employer - It employs terrorists from Fatah, Hamas, Tanzim, Islamic Jihad, and even Al Qaeda. All are "worthy" and all receive.

The problem is not Hamas. It is Fatah!
