The ideological allies of a future 'Palestinian' state are America's enemies

US President George W. Bush arrives here tomorrow for a brief visit in honor of Israel's 60th anniversary. While it's always nice to have the President here, the main purpose of this visit is actually not to wish us a Happy Birthday. It's to promote his plan to bring about an agreement on the establishment of a 'Palestinian' state reichlet by the end of 2008. Given that the 'Palestinian' reichlet is likely to be hostile to America's interests, one has to wonder why President Bush is so hung up on establishing it. This is from Palestinian Media Watch.
Last month PMW director Itamar Marcus was invited to the US Congress by Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Rep. Elliot Engel of the House Foreign Affairs Committee to release a report documenting the dangers to US interests of a Palestinian state with ideological alliances to many US enemies. "Strengthening America's Enemies" The ideological allies of a future Palestinian state," now being released, concludes:

"There is overwhelming evidence that the contacts between the Palestinian Authority and the enemies of the United States are relations between allies who share a common ideological bond. Strikingly, hatred of the United States and disdain for the US role of world leadership are what unite them. Unless the Palestinian Authority demonstrates a major shift in ideology, a future Palestinian state will be firmly allied with North Korea, Syria, Cuba, Iran, Chavez's Venezuela, and Hezbollah, the forces that are seen as threats to the US and which are linked to world terror...There is no reason to believe that were a Palestinian Fatah state created, and its dependency on the US reduced, it would then choose to embrace the US. Indeed, in all likelihood the ties with the enemy states would intensify."
The full 30-page report (PDF warning) is here.

Why is the United States looking to aid its enemies? I wish I had an answer to that question. But there is little doubt that the 'Palestinians' are aligned with America's enemies.
This report reveals that the Palestinian Authority-Fatah government of Mahmoud Abbas is allied with many states who see themselves as enemies of the US and whom the US sees as threatening US security and world peace. Significantly, the affinity that is felt for such geographically distant non-Muslim countries, such as North Korea, Cuba, and Chavez's Venezuela is precisely because these states publicly challenge and express loathing for the US. The PA admires such organizations as Hezbullah, PA- Fatah heroes are master terrorists such as Imad Mughniyeh, killer of 241 American soldiers in Lebanon and the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 are celebrated almost every annual anniversary with a political cartoon in the official PA daily (see Part 1).

The US, on the other hand, is depicted by Fatah leaders, their controlled media and PA education with disdain and loathing. Language such as, "the greatest Satan in the world, America" [PA TV, March 3, 2008], by a Fatah legislator is routine.
The United States doesn't provide aid to North Korea, Cuba or Chavez's Venezuela. The United States doesn't provide aid or weapons to Hezbullah. Why is it providing them to Fatah?

Its a good question. One can also ask the two Ehuds why they are throwing Mahmoud Abbas under the bus by seeking to cut a separate deal with Hamas if in fact he's a "moderate." If you buy the "good terrorists" argument, then why does Israel want to strengthen the more extreme Hamas by accepting a hudna that does not even include the return of Gilad Shalit in the bargain? When it comes to negotiating in the Middle East bazaar, the Israeli government always seems to wind up with the short end of the stick. Why both Israel and the U.S are subsidizing their enemies is one of those things to which no one has a good answer that makes sense.

And how selective is the list, highlighting enemies of the Iranian axis of evil or growing Latino Socialist - Iranian alliance nations (new developments in Paraguay, btw). Missing the giant #1 enemy before our very eyes -- the Saudi/Pakistan/Sunni Arab League alliance. But then that is the Bush/Condi approach--having them on the friends list to be supported and appeased.

Carl, to answer your question: The Saudis say, Bush and Condi do.

Someone should review all US diplomatic initiatives towards Israel in recent years and see if any of these were incompatible with the advice Saudi Arabia was giving to Washington.
