Continuing PA Incitement Against Hamas Amounts To National Treachery

It seems the weak Palestinian Authority (PA) regime, which is always at
Israel's beck and call, doesn't content itself with serving Israel's
interests through the manifestly scandalous function of "security
coordination" with the Palestinian people's enemy, tormentor and
In fact, the Ramallah-based government, which operates under the umbrella of
the Israeli military occupation, is shamelessly selling its "services" to
every tyrannical and repressive regime in the Arab world.
As we all know, the PA regime has been closely cooperating with criminal Arab
rulers from Bahrain to Casablanca in order to receive a certificate of good
conduct from these despots who usurped power, repressed, humiliated and
murdered their respective citizens in order to remain in power for ever.
Betraying the enduring Palestinian struggle against Israeli occupation and
terror, the PA viewed these terrorist regimes as natural allies against
Needless to say, this stupid and manifestly treacherous policy has immensely
harmed the just cause of the Palestinian people, namely the enduring struggle
to free Palestine from the clutches of Israeli occupation and fascism.
Moreover, as a result of close PA cooperation and collaboration with
unpopular Arab regimes in countries such as Egypt and Syria, it was noticed
that many Arabs, especially those tormented by their criminal regimes, began
distancing themselves from the Palestinian cause, the central cause of Arabs
and Muslims around the world.
In Syria, Palestinian refugees were and are still exposed to casual death and
harm due to ignominious PLO backing of the Nazi-like regime in Damascus which
has been waging an effective holocaust against the Syrian people.
Needless to say, thousands of innocent Palestinians have been killed and
maimed as a direct result of PA-PLO stupidity. Tens of thousands have also
been forced to leave their bombed-out refugee camps, especially at the
Yarmouk refugee camp near Damascus.
It is now feared that the sectarian violence will reach Palestinian refugees
in Lebanon, where the Iranian-backed Hizbullah, which is closely allied with
the Assad regime, holds sway.
Inciting the Sissi Junta against Hamas
The latest act of treachery on the PLO-PA's part is the brazen incitement by
PA foreign minister Riyad al Maleki against Hamas, the Palestinian liberation
movement, which last year fought a 51-day internecine war with
American-backed Israel, while the PA was praying hard to see the Israeli army
overrun Gaza, murder Hamas's leaders, and return Gaza to PLO kleptocracy on a
In a recent statement, al-Maleki reportedly claimed that the Ramallah regime
had credible proofs implicating Hamas in the latest military showdown between
the Sissi regime and its opponents in Sinai.
Predictably, al-Maleki gave no proof corroborating his allegations, which
proves the spurious and mendacious nature of these allegations.
It is of course very easy to refute al-Maleki's accusations. After all, the
recent attacks on Egyptian security targets in Sinai were claimed by IS, an
avowed opponent of Hamas.
Indeed, IS recently bluntly threatened Hamas, lumping the Palestinian Islamic
liberation group in one basket with Israel, which really raise a big question
mark over the validity of al-Maleki's remarks?
The ostensible total falsehood of al-Maleki's remarks has also been
illustrated by the Egyptian regime's reluctance to direct any accusations
toward Hamas as to its alleged involvement in the latest events in Sinai.
Finally, it is very very hard to cite a single logical reason that would
prompt Hamas to get involved in the Egyptian quagmire, especially at this
point, as such an involvement would give the anti-Islamic Cairo junta an
excuse to further tighten its already hermetic blockade of some two million
Gazans, languishing under an enduring Nazi-like siege imposed by Israel.
Hence, the question: What does the Ramallah regime really want to see the
Sissi junta do to Gaza and its long-tormented but steadfast citizens? Bomb
Gaza to smithereens as the Egyptian army has been doing to many Egyptian
homes on the Egyptian side of the border? Or slaughter and maim thousands of
Gazans in order to vent the regime's frustration over its clarion failure to
defeat the growing insurgency at home?
The truth of the matter is that the PA-PLO leadership hates Hamas so much
that it would support the unthinkable against the people of Gaza.
Unfortunately, there is no other conclusion that can be drawn from al-Maleki's
Indeed, the vengeance and vindictiveness with which the Ramallah regime's
security agencies showed in suppressing this week's protest in downtown
Ramallah by the mothers and relatives of political detainees leave no doubt
as regards the malicious intent of the PA.
We who live here in the West Bank remember how we watched in horror how some
Fatah operatives in Hebron and elsewhere gleefully celebrated the wanton
Israeli bombing of Gaza in 2008-2009, which really shows that the PA-PLO
can't be given the benefit of the doubt if there is ever a doubt in this
