If you follow the mainstream media, you would think that only Hamas is shooting missiles, rockets and mortars at Israel. This is fairly remarkable considering there are hundreds of reporters in the area.

Over the past two days, however, other groups have taken credit for shooting rockets and mortars not only at Israeli towns (as it has done throughout the war) but also for shooting rockets at the Erez and Kerem Shalom crossings.

Erez, of course, is where injured Gazans exit the sector to go for medical treatment. And Kerem Shalom is where thousands of tons of food, fuel and other aid enters Gaza.

Who are these terror groups that target Gaza's lifeline? Why, they are members of Fatah - the political party that PA president Mahmoud Abbas leads!

You see, Fatah are the Moderate Terrorists.

A press release from the Nidal Al-Amoudi group of Fatah's Al Aqsa Martyr's Brigades claimed today to have shot 3 120mm mortars at Kerem Shalom at 11:07 AM today.

The Abdul-Qader al-Husseini Brigades, also part of Fatah, took credit for shooting a rocket at Kerem Shalom yesterday at 1:38 PM and also for shooting 120mm mortars at the Erez crossing at 7:55 PM and 9:29 PM.

These are besides the rockets being shot at Ashkelon and many Negev communities.

It is entirely possible that Fatah terror groups were responsible for the injuries at Erez a couple of days ago.

Pointing out that Fatah terror groups exist is apparently media kryptonite. Out of the thousands of dispatches from Gaza over the past fifty days, I am aware of only a single mention of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades in an international news article,  in the middle of a piece from the Globe and Mail. The Daily Beast listed the group as now being allied with Hezbollah in an analysis.

That's about it.

The idea that Mahmoud Abbas' "moderate" Fatah is shooting rockets just like Hamas and Islamic Jihad does not fit the lazy  narrative of Hamas being not so good but Fatah being wonderful peacemakers. This is why human rights groups and reporters are aghast at the idea of saying anything negative about this terror group, complete with masks and rockets and mortars, shooting rockets at Israeli civilians.

The truth is inconvenient so it must be suppressed.
