Illegal armed Fatah militia marches in Qalandia
Dr. Aaron Lerner - IMRA: Here is how the independent Palestinian news agency, Maan, puts it: "The Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades are the military wing of Fatah, which is in control of the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank."
That's right. An illegal armed militia is the "military wing" of our "peace partners".
Hey Mr. Kerry. When you come this week and feel like wagging your finger at someone, how about breaking new ground and saying something about Palestinian violations? And what better place to start than expressing your disappointment seeing photos of a parade of an illegal armed militia - in particular an illegal armed militia of "peace partner" Mahmoud Abas' ruling Fatah!]
