WASHINGTON - The Bush administration on Monday lifted its economic and political embargo against the Palestinian government, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice announced.
The move follows the expulsion of the militant Hamas movement from the Palestinian Authority, and is meant to strengthen Western-backed President Mahmoud Abbas by resuming direct U.S. aid.
...(Rice) said the administration will ask Congress to rework a previous $86 million aid request. That money had been intended to help shore up Abbas' security forces but could now be put to other uses.
..."Through its actions, Hamas sought to divide the Palestinan nation, we reject that," Rice said. "It is the position of the United States that there is one Palestinian people and there should be one Palestinian state."
"We are not going to countenance that somehow the Palestinians are divisible," she said "We are not going to abandon the Palestinians living in Gaza."
That line about Fatah's security forces is just too fucking funny for words, except it's pretty tragic at the same time cuz of course, just about all of Abbas' security forces are now dead or disarmed.
This solution works for the Zionists, too, because it means Israel may continue to expend (US-financed) weaponry and ordinance on the 'dirty wogs' in Gaza, without incurring the enmity of anybody else in the world except the Arabs who already detest 'em...
Examine, also, please, the logic of the last lines: By this measure, one would have to conclude the Busheviks' opposition to the Dumbocraps was because the Dums are 'divisive.' The Chimp said six years ago he wanted to be dictator-for-ever. Hamas WON the 'democratic' elections, dinnit? Hamas, not Fatah, is the duly elected authority, right?
Why, yes; yes, that's right. Hamas IS the duly elected Palestinian Authority.
Why do you ask?
