Elliot Abrams, a long-standing neoconservative, well-known Greater Israel Zionist and currently Deputy National Security Advisor, is reportedly behind not only the current violence between Hamas and Fatah, particularly the fighting in the Gaza, but also the violence in Lebanon.
To most people who are familiar with Abrams history this assertion will not come as any surprise; his role in the notorious Iran-Contra affair of the 1980s is well known. Abrams is well versed in the art of playing off one set of peoples against another in order to achieve an outcome that ultimately is not in the interests of either but only in the interests of the US and/or Israel. This current situation among Palestinians is no exception.
...AND FOLLOWING UP ON THIS IS THE INEVITABLE AL QAEDA CONNECTION – NEVER FAR AWAY FROM ANYTHING ABRAMS GETS INVOLVED IN!!
The Israeli and US propaganda machine is waking up to the fact that the peoples of the world are themselves waking up to the fact that most of the stuff that comes out of the right-wing mainstream media of Israel and the US is, indeed, just propaganda.
The Fatah al-Islam mob in Lebanon that have been covertly financed and supplied by the US for example are only being touted as ‘al Qaeda inspired’ rather than ‘al Qaeda in Lebanon’ or some other such nonsense. (They are actually ‘Elliot Abrams inspired’.)
It is also becoming quite clear that al Qaeda has nothing to do with any of the violence that is currently going in Iraq, and that it never has had, despite Bush’s recent announcement releasing ‘evidence’ to show bin Laden had started up al Qaeda in Iraq using the ‘late Abu Musab al-Zarqawi’ to set up the Iraqi branch office of al Qaeda in Iraq.
There is, of course, no actual ‘evidence’ shown. There’s just Bush reading his notes telling the world another load of garbage and then expecting this to be accepted as ‘evidence’. He hasn’t quite woken up yet to the fact that most people on this planet simply don’t believe him or anything his administration says anymore.
Meanwhile the warmongers are upping the ante off Iran today with the arrival of some 17,000 marines on the USS Bonhomme Richard assault ship that has recently arrived in the Gulf for ‘exercises’.
