Pembersihan Aqidah Pemurnian Ibadah (PAPI) bersama Us TUAN MOHD SAPUAN TUAN ISMAIL.

US gagal hadapi Hamas melalui Fatah?

Kumpulan yang berpegang kepada ideologi sekularisma dan nasionalisma sama saja di mana-mana. Mereka memusuhi perjuangan Islam. Apabila mereka kuat dan berkuasa, mereka lakukan apa saja; pengumpulan harta secara rasuah, penipuan, penindasan, penangkapan tanpa pengadilan dan berbagai-bagai bentuk kezaliman lagi. Namun, perjuangan mereka rapuh. Dengan kesedaran dan kebangkitan rakyat, mereka pasti runtuh. Inilah yang diharapkan sedang berlaku terhadap Fatah di Palestin. Semoga Allah terus memelihara ummah yang membantu agamaNya.

Siapa pula di Malaysia yang berpegang dengan ideologi sekularisma dan nasionalisma? Keruntuhan mereka insyaAllah pasti tiba.

US millions fail to buy influence in deadly Gaza power play
Ed O'Loughlin, Gaza

TheAge.com.au - AFTER weeks of fraternal violence, many Palestinians accuse the US of stoking civil war in the occupied territories as part of a wider proxy struggle with Iran, Syria or the Islamic world in general. If so, the White House's strategy could be going badly wrong, just as it did in Iraq and Lebanon.

Locals say that after only a couple of hours of relatively minor clashes in northern Gaza last week, the entire area fell under the control of the Islamic ruling party Hamas, backed mainly by Iran and Syria.

Instead of fighting, thousands of Palestinian Authority security men supposedly loyal to the US-backed former ruling party, Fatah, melted quietly away. And this week in Gaza City morale among those PA security men still serving PA chairman and Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas seemed scarcely any higher.

Several senior Fatah leaders in Gaza and the West Bank are ostentatiously withholding their support from Mr Abbas and, more particularly, the powerful but controversial Mr Dahlan, a US favourite.

These signs of collapsing Fatah unity come despite - or perhaps because of - the White House's recent announcement that it will provide $US86 million ($A110 million) to strengthen Mr Abbas' Presidential Guard for any showdown with Hamas.

In the West Bank town of Jericho, American military personnel have been training new members of this revamped force, increased from 300 under Yasser Arafat to 4000 at present and climbing.

Israel has released to Mr Abbas $US100 million of the customs revenue it has been withholding from the Palestinian Government since Hamas, which refuses to recognise the Jewish state or renounce armed struggle, beat Fatah in elections last year.

Israel has also allowed weapons, ammunition and supplies sent to Mr Dahlan by US client regimes in Jordan and Egypt to pass through its tight cordon around the Gaza Strip.

Yet for all the money, guns and training there is reason to doubt whether the new Presidential Guards, any more than the other 60,000-odd members of the PA's ramshackle network of rival security forces, are really up for a showdown with Hamas' warriors.

It was the breakdown in law and order and the lack of progress towards independence from Israel that led many despairing Palestinians to turn on Fatah's corrupt and compromised leadership last year, voting instead for the hardline but disciplined Hamas.

"Abu al-Abd", a Hamas intelligence chief in northern Gaza's Jabaliya refugee camp, says that if the Mecca talks break down, Hamas, which claims to have 15,000 trained fighters in its armed wing, the Qassam Brigades, would have no difficulty in overrunning the remaining Fatah bases in Gaza, including Mr Abbas' presidential compound on the coast, known as the Muntada.

"I know these Presidential Guards," he said. "They are cowards. They won't fight. They depend on bhangu (hashish), whiskey, cigarettes and hair gel. They aren't fighting for any ideology. Who should they die for? Dahlan? When we come for them they will ask, what should I lose my life for?"

While the fighting qualities of the PA's security forces still remains open to doubt, Fatah's own armed militia, the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, would seem a hollow reed for Mr Abbas, Mr Dahlan and their foreign backers to lean on.

This week Baha Abu Jarad, 35, and his fellow al-Aqsa Brigades (and PA security force) commander "Abu Isam", 33, were holed up in a lone block of the Jabaliya refugee camp, scene of the worst of the recent clashes, unable to leave following repeated attacks by Hamas' Qassam Brigades.

As the commanders denounced Hamas to reporters in a bare fourth-storey room, their guards crowded around to listen. Brandishing loaded grenade launchers and unserviceable Soviet machine-guns, the guerilla fighters posed eagerly for photographs.

Then, after a brief huddle to consult, they posed again, this time with masks on.

When the reporters left, they found the street outside deserted; despite the genuine peril of the situation, all the sentries had abandoned their posts to go upstairs and join in the fun. Full report published on Feb. 9 by theage.com.au
