"Two officers, one in critical and one in serious condition, were airlifted to Jerusalem's Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital and Soroka Hospital in Beersheva."
"Command Sgt. Maj. Yehoshua Sofer, 39, succumbed to his injuries at the hospital."
"Both officers were shot in the chest, according to Magen David Adom paramedics at the scene of the attack. A third officer sustained less serious gunshot wounds and a fourth was lightly injured by shrapnel."
"The al-Aksa Martyrs' Brigades, the "armed wing" of the Palestinian Authority's Fatah faction, claimed responsibility for the shooting attack."
Mahmoud Abbas's PLO Fatah, which runs the "Palestinian Authority", held a convention for it's members August '09.
Fatah and the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades are both the same organization.
U.S. funding of the Fatah Palestinian Authority is therefore the funding of a known terrorist organization, and is illegal according to U.S. law.
Misappropriation of taxpayer money by State Dept., Administration, or members of Congress are serious offenses.
It was Mahmoud Abbas, the so-called "moderate". who hand picked Mahmoud Damra, an Al-Aqsa brigades terror commander, to serve as head of his Force 17.
Aaron Klein of WND reported the following in 2007:
"The Brigades, together with Islamic Jihad, has taken responsibility for every suicide bombing in Israel the past two years, including an attack in Tel Aviv in April that killed American teenager Daniel Wultz and nine Israelis. The Brigades also has carried out scores of deadly shooting and rocket attacks against Israeli civilians in recent months. "
"All Brigades leaders are also members of Fatah. Abbas last June appointed senior Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades leader Mahmoud Damra as commander of Force 17. Damra, who was arrested by Israel in November, was on the Jewish state's most-wanted list of terrorists."
"Abu Yousuf said the American weapons shipments may be shared with other Palestinian terror groups. He said that during large confrontations with Israel, such as the Jewish state's 2002 anti-terror raid in Jenin, Fatah distributed weapons to Hamas and Islamic Jihad."
Call, write your congressmen.
Don't like your tax money being used to bail out banks that made bad financial decisions and made house-loans to folks who couldn't afford them?
Plenty mad about the bailouts?
How about the Hamas Gaza bailouts, or the Fatah bailouts?
The Obama Administration has just announced it will give $400 million in U.S. taxpayer money for the terrorist Hamas population in Gaza.
