The terrorists who gunned down two off-duty soldiers hiking near Hebron on Friday are both Palestinian Authority workers, and one of them is even a member of the official PA security forces, the Shin Bet (Israel Security Service) revealed Tuesday night.Ahikam Amihai (left) and Yehuda Rubin, who were killed in Friday's terror attack near Kiryat Arba.
Since the attack on Friday, the PA has claimed that the murderers of David Rubin and Ahikam Amihai were unaffiliated terrorists. On Sunday, The Jerusalem Post reported that at least two of them were Fatah operatives.
According to details of the attack released Tuesday, the gunmen - Ali Dandis, 24, and Amar Taha, 26, both residents of Hebron - surrendered on the day of the attack to the Palestinian security forces in Hebron out of fear that they would be caught by the IDF. They also handed over the soldiers' weapons.
At first the PA said that this was a "criminal offense" - LIE.
Then the PA said that it was a "dispute" between arms dealers -LIE.
The PA broadly hinted that the victims were selling weapons to Israel's enemies - OUTRAGEOUS SLANDEROUS LIE.
The PA has claimed - even after the murders - that they have disarmed the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades in the West Bank and that there are no more Fatah terrorists - LAUGHABLE LIE.
The PA made all of these claims after the terrorists already turned themselves in last Friday - so there is no wiggle room to say that the PA was making guesses, or was misinformed. They knowingly, repeatedly lied to protect the terrorists and to avoid "looking bad" to the world.
The PA, at the very least, has proven that:
-It actively protects murderers.
-It conspires to cover up murders.
-It repeatedly, knowingly and publicly lies to the world.
Someone please explain the wisdom of negotiating with this terrorist organization called the Palestinian Authority. In what universe does it make sense to cut deals with people who support murderers and whose words cannot be believed - ever?
This is not spin on the part of the PA. This is not politics. This is not an amateurish attempt to deflect blame. This is the pre-planned decision, a clear choice between admitting that their people were involved or blaming the victims, between choosing the side of the terrorists or the "peace partners."
The PA terror organization, the clear heir of the PLO in every respect, made that choice crystal clear.
And these sickening liars, these people who continue support and pay terrorists, these subhuman scum whose heroes are mass murderers - these are the people that Olmert wants to entrust biblical Jerusalem to.
