Report By Watchdog Group States Palestinian Fatah Government, "Allied With...Enemies Of The US"

May 13, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - - As noted previously State Department Pushes Israelis Towards "Peace Process" While The PA Glorifies Terror Bomber Who Murdered 8 Students the Palestinian Fatah government, led by Mahmoud Abbas, is engaged in a policy perfected by Fatah's previous leader, the terrorist Yasser Arafat, who made nice with the Western press in English, but gave all manner of support to the intifada and jihad in Arabic, when the cameras had been cased up and put away.

A new report, by Palestinian Media Watch makes it clear that not only is the Abbas government supportive of terror, but that it has increasingly allied itself with enemies of the United States including Iran, Syria, North Korea and Hugo Chavez' Venezuela, stating:

"There is ample evidence that the contacts between the Palestinian Authority and the enemies of the United States have the characteristics of relations between allies who share a common ideological bond…Hatred of the United States and disdain for its role of world leadership are the essence of this bond…If a Palestinian state were to be established before a qualitative shift in ideology, it is inevitable that the proposed state would join the alliance of enemies of the US and would strengthen those countries in undermining American goals for world peace."

The report is supported by an intensive investigation of articles and television programs presented by PA controlled media.

A few examples include:

1. "Al-Jadida [the PA's daily newspaper] on January 4, 2007, stated: "Public figures and the [armed] factions in Yabad [west of Jenin] decided to name one of the schools in the municipality and its most important street after Saddam to immortalize his memory and to emphasize the values of Arabness and jihad, which he represented."

2. Another article from the newspaper on September 21, 2006 reads in part, "The director of the General Assembly of Palestine's Workers, Hidar Ibrahim... demanded that the international community... put pressure on America to pull out his forces from Iraq and to cease its extortion against Syria, Sudan and Iran."

3. In a September 10, 2007 piece congratulates North Korea's communist dictator, "in honor of the day of the establishment of the republic. The president expressed in his letter his deep pride for the historic and strong relations that exist between Palestine and Democratic Korea."

The release of the PMW document was timed to coincide with the arrival of Abbas for talks in DC with President Bush.
