    Amira is so poor at setting the foundation for her positions and then there is all kinds of mock amazement at the response she gets. Fatah is fighting hamas as Israel expects....hmmmm as opposed to the fighting and struggle that has gone on between them until now. The corruption of fatah is Israel's fault, a result of being "bought" off....as opposed to the corruption in the surrounding arab countries. Fatah fights Hamas because of a power struggle to see who rules the roost and are settling it the Arab way....might makes right, and when it doesn't suck up to whomever you need to. Fatah is as corrupt as any other arab group in the region who has power. A fatah supporter would write the same article in reverse if Israel dealt with hamas. Amira has once again removed arab responsibility and accountability and whimpers instead. The concept that arabs are responsible for their own actions is foreign to Amira, how condescending to posit Israel's hand and control over everything.
