I wrote the other day about the crazies in the 'Christian zionist Movement', but I never thought I would see the beginnings of a Palestinian one. It seems that FATHA has become just that, the Palestine zionist Movement (PzM).
The leader of the movement is the former President of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas. In recent history we have seen certain 'leaders' of the Palestinians not always act in the best interests of their nation, we have seen millions of dollars belonging to the people misappropriated. But never before have we seen a 'leadership' sell out that nation to the enemy as is happening today in the West Bank of the Occupied Territories.
The following two short articles taken from the site of the Palestinian Information Center (PIC) says it all.... the third article from HaAretz is a must read as well.

NEW YORK, (PIC)-- The PA delegation to the UN, which is accountable to President Abbas, intervened to hamper a draft resolution submitted to the UNSC by Qatar and Indonesia to ease the suffering of the people living in the Gaza Strip.
The US for its part intervened to enforce amendments on the draft resolution and expressed support for the PA delegation's views.
The draft resolution, which was submitted on Thursday and distributed to members of the council, called for the UNSC to express concern for the stranded Palestinians at the Rafah crossing and to urge a quick resolution for their predicament. It also calls for allowing the free flow of humanitarian aid into the Gaza Strip.
The PA delegation objected to the Indonesian-Qatari move on the pretext that they should have been consulted on the draft resolution before it was submitted. The US delegation expressed, in press statements, support for the PA delegation's stand.
The Qatari delegation commented on the objection of the PA delegation by saying that they have acted on a humanitarian basis and that the draft resolution dealt with the issue on the humanitarian level and not on the political level and added that a number of council members expressed support for the draft resolution.
The US delegation asked for amendments to the resolution whereby Israel is not mentioned in the resolution. The US representative also told reporters that the US wishes to involve the PA delegation in the submission of the draft resolution to the council.
The draft resolution was supposed to be considered on Thursday, but the French delegation asked for more time to consult the French government.

NABLUS, (PIC)-- A Najah university student who was beaten and shot in the head on Tuesday in skirmishes that took place between Hamas supporters and Fatah militias died today at hospital.
Muhammad Abdelrahim Raddad (21 years), a third year student at Najah University died this morning of his wounds.
Eyewitnesses said that Radad was drag by a group of Fatah supporters who ganged on him, thrown to the ground and one student pulled a pistol and shot him in the head.
Medical reports confirm that Radad was hit in the head from a close range.
The student's family stated that they were holding the university administrators responsible for the death of their son.
The Islamic bloc at the university is calling for a full inquiry into the events of Tuesday, during which teargas was fired by the PA police at university students who held a picket inside the university campus to protest at the arrest of three of their colleagues and led to the murder of Radad.
Meanwhile, the Hamas movement held President Abbas and the University Administration responsible for the murder of the student and called for bringing to justice those who murdered him.
In a statement on the issue Hamas said that the person who belongs to the Shabiba, the student branch of Fatah and who carried out the assassination was well known and he should be arrested and tried.
The 'PzM' works like any other zionist movement, they even have a LOBBY working in their interests at the United Nations via the Fatah-led delegation there... read the following to see.
Fatah-led delegation to block UN initiative over Gaza crisis By Shlomo Shamir, Haaretz Correspondent
The Palestinian delegation to the United Nations is blocking a Security Council initiative aimed at expressing the organization's concern over the humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip.
Since the militant Hamas faction violently seized control over the coastal territory in mid-June, border crossings between Gaza and its neighbors Israel and Egypt have largely remained closed, limiting the transfer of food and supplies into the Strip.
Hamas routed rival faction Fatah in the takeover, and thus the resolution of the humanitarian crisis stands in conflict with the interests of the Fatah-affiliated Palestinian delegation to the UN.
Senior UN officials reported Friday that the Palestinian representatives have been relentlessly operating in recent days to foil an initiative ultimately aimed at issuing a Security Council presidential statement criticizing the situation in the Gaza Strip.
A presidential statement is typically issued when the council is unable to attain a passing vote on a resolution, and is non-binding. However, such a statement requires a consensus among the 15 member states. These statements are meant to apply political pressure and to warn that additional action could follow, and are usually accompanied by a press statement.
Reports from the UN headquarters in New York reveal that Qatar, a member of the Security Council, formulated at least two drafts for the final presidential statement on the Gaza humanitarian crisis. The second draft was formulated in efforts to appease the Palestinians.
However, according to sources, the Palestinian delegation has opposed any move on the behalf of the Security Council regarding this issue.
"This situation is absurd," a Western diplomat told Haaretz. "It is obvious that it is in the Palestinian delegation's best interest to conceal the fact that Hamas is in control of the Gaza Strip," he said.
