Obama is due to visit Israeli officials in Jerusalem and leaders of the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank city of Ramallah as part of a wider Middle Eastern and European tour that includes Jordan, France and Germany.

According to security officials coordinating deployments of forces with the PA for Obama's Ramallah visit, members of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, Fatah's declared military wing, have been called upon by the PA to participate in the protection of Obama, particularly in securing the perimeter during a scheduled meeting with PA President Mahmoud Abbas.

The Brigades is listed as a terror organization by the U.S. State Department. The group took credit along with the Islamic Jihad terror organization for every suicide bombing in Israel between 2005 and 2006 and is responsible for thousands of shootings and rocket firings. Statistically, the Al Aqsa Brigades perpetuated more terrorism from the West Bank than Hamas, according to the Israeli Defense Forces.

Brigades leaders, speaking to WND on condition of anonymity, confirmed they will participate in protecting Obama as official members of the PA's security forces.

If you would read the article, you see it was the Palestinian Authority who recruited them, not Obama. From the article:


have been called upon by the PA to participate in the protection of Obama


Plus, these groups already serve within the PA security forces. Again, from the article:


Many Brigades members, including the group's chiefs, serve openly in Fatah's Force 17 presidential guard units and the Palestinian Preventative Security Services; hundreds of Force 17 and Preventative officers are slated to secure Ramallah during Obama's visit there.


Nor is the PA using AAMB for security during Obama's visit anything beyond the pale. Once more, from the article:



Al Aqsa Brigades members doubling as PA security officers previously participated in security for other visiting U.S. officials without incident.


How is any of this a reflection of Obama's patriotism? The PA is in charge of security in the West Bank; the Isreali security forces cannot operate there, and the Secret Service alone would not be adequate security without the PA's assistance. Who do you expect to protect Obama during a West Bank visit?

Wait a second! Who in the Hell starred the opening post? Neither they or the OP have been able to tell us how the Palestinian Authority's security supposedly reflects on Obama's patriotism.

Does it reflect on Condoleeza Rice or President Bush's patriotism as well? They have both visited the West Bank, and extrapolating data from the article the OP sited but apparently didn't read, they were undoubtedly protected by PA security forces that included members of the Al'Aqsa Martyr's Brigade.

I couldnt have said it better.

How about the pictures of Rumsfeld shaking hands with Saddam after they helped him take control of Iraq...

How about the Bush admin who gave all that training and weapons to Osama Bin Laden?


That must be Jetxnet's version of patriotism.

How pathetic.

Don't get too high on that horse, Andrew; it's a very long way down. "Liberals" engage and wallow in it every bit as much as "conservatives" do.

More BS, the headline is targeting the brain dead gullables of society..
seeing those words together, in a solid sentance puts the idea that Obama is some how favoured and in good terms with terrorists.
