Fatah synonymous with violence

I already mentioned how PA president Abbas celebrated the this weekend the 45th anniversary of Fatah's first terror attack, not the 45th anniversary of Fatah, proving that for Palestinian Arabs, Fatah is synonymous with terrorism - and celebrating one is to celebrate the other.

More evidence for the tautology between Fatah and violence can be seen in this Reuters picture showing a woman celebrating the same anniversary:
A Palestinian woman (L) holds a rifle during a rally marking the anniversary of the founding of the Fatah movement, in the West Bank city of Hebron January 3, 2010.

Remember when Abbas told the world back in 2005 that he had made the public display of weapons illegal?
