A Visit to Fatah’s Torture Chamber
By Ulrike Putz in the Gaza Strip

The headquarters of the Fatah-controlled security force in Gaza have been open to the public since last Thursday. Every day is open house now.

For years the complex was a symbol of the horror disseminated by the security forces that reported directly to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. This is where Hamas men were taken after Fatah had arrested them. Some of those lucky enough to be eventually released reported that they had been tortured. Others disappeared forever.

If you are keeping score Fatah is the moderate one we (the US and Israel) are now supporting. How long will we continue to prop up amoral regimes because they are slightly less amoral that the other fascists? The victims of our puppets become tomorrow’s anti American terrorists.

Our demands on Fatah and Hamas must be clear and strong. Recognition of Israel, and renounce and ELIMINATE terrorism from your territories.

The only difference between Fatah and Hamas is Hamas wants Israel destroyed now; Fatah is willing to wait a few years to accomplish the same end goal.
