Fascism in Ramallah


By Khalid Amayreh

"The American-backed, Israeli-tolerated Palestinian Authority has been unmasking its ugly face. In recent days and weeks, ruthless and undisciplined Security forces have been suppressing public dissent, especially opposition to futile talks with Israel. Such talks are looked upon by most Palestinians as a clear surrender to Israeli whims and dictates.....

There are those who argue that savaging the Palestinians is a sin-qua-non for the PA. This argument shouldn't be dismissed easily. There are real fears among Palestinians that the PA security forces would be eventually used to suppress any opposition to any unacceptable deal with Israel [ Comment: I fully agree that this is likely to happen and I have repeatedly expressed this fear.], a deal that would liquidate the Palestinian cause. Some say this is the raison d'etre of the PA security forces.

This is the real looming danger that all free and dignified Palestinians must be vigilant about."
