Fatah's 'armed wing' going 'legit', to be armed by US and Israel

'Moderate' 'Palestinian President' Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen announced over the weekend that he has no intention of dismantling his Fatah group's 'armed wing' - the al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades. He just wants to make them 'legitimate' by incorporating them into his 'security forces' where they will be armed by the United States and by Israel. After all, the 'Brigades' set such a great example for 'Palestinian' kids....
"All the members of the Aksa Martyrs Brigades will become official members of the security forces," the sources said. "We want them to become a legitimate force operating within the frame of the Palestinian security forces."

According to the sources, the Fatah militiamen will be placed under the direct jurisdiction of Abbas. "The group will be allowed to retain its name and status," the explained. "The group won't be dismantled."


The Bethlehem-based Maan news agency quoted Abu Fuad, a spokesman for the Aksa Martyrs Brigades in the West Bank, as saying that Abbas had agreed to merge the group into the Palestinian security forces. "There is no decision to dismantle the Aksa Martyrs Brigades," he stressed. "The president only wants to turn us into a legitimate force. This is the agreement we reached with the president."
And of course, if they are a 'legitimate force' they will be entitled to their 'fair share' of those weapons being provided by the US and Israel.
