Haaretz has reported of the support which the PA has received from Israel. Abbas and Fatah, received money, weapons and training. In exchange, they have become lackeys of Israel. This is a common strategy for conquering nations. In WW2 France, the French authorities were among the best at discovering Jews and shipping them off to concentration camps. This was especially true in Vichy France, which did not even contain German troops. The difference in modern day Israel is the ever-present PR and spin element, interacting with the Fatah mercenaries activities. The Israeli leadership can script anything they like in this situation, since they control "both sides". Sometimes they just get carried away with their own cleverness.
