English Language EXCLUSIVE: Hezbollah Now Controls Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades in Israel

By Debbie Schlussel

Israeli columnist and reporter Chagai Hoberman of Israeli Hebrew-language newspaper HaZofe (pronounced HAH-TSOH-FEH) reports that Hezbollah--NOT Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah--now controls the terrorist group Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades.

In his column, "Duach" [Report], Hoberman reports that Israeli Security Services say that Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades terrorists they have picked up in "West Bank" cities, like Shecham, over the past several years, have received weapons, money, and training from Hezbollah. In addition, they say Hezbollah--not Abbas' Fatah--controls them (yet they are, likely, still allied with Fatah . . . for now). It's a very disturbing development because Hezbollah now has a significant cancer, er . . . presence inside Israel.

HaZofe: Hezbollah Now Controls Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade Inside Israel

This is yet another reason why you, the American taxpayer, should oppose Bush Administration efforts to send more money and weapons to Abbas and Fatah. Eventually the money--and the weapons--will end up in Hezbollah's hands. Propping Abbas up, props up Hezbollah (even though Al-Aqsa Martyrs are not under Fatah's control, they are, likely allied with it, right now).

Additionally, Hezbollah's presence inside Israel is significant. How are the Al Aqsa Martyrs getting to and from South Lebanon (Israel's Northern border? via Jordan and Syria?)? And why is it so easy for them to smuggly money and weaponry into the country from there?

Finally, Hoberman reports that Abbas' Palestinian Authority Police and Security chief, Mohammed Dahlan (who has helped and enabled terrorists carry out their operations against Israel in the past) is blaiming America and Israel for his loss of Gaza. He claims that America did not teach him to focus on fighting HAMAS, and, instead, he focused on fighting and killing Jews in Israel. MOST important is the real reason he failed to fight and defeat HAMAS: Dahlan says that he is mad at HAMAS because he protected many top key HAMAS terrorist leaders from the Israelis. This is Israel's new "peace partner," to whom they will give and give 'til it hurts at the upcoming Arab states conference. Idiocy.

Also of note, 60,000 of Dahlan's Fatah men--and tons of American money and high-tech weapons--failed to defeat 15,000 motivated, far less-equipped HAMAS fighters. Why do America and Israel believe the result will be different in the "West Bank"?
