I followed up that article with a series on the KGB, their tactics, and their past and current activities (see May, 2015, ff). Somewhere in there I posted multiple links where I obtained the information about Abu Mazen.
For a year-and-a-half I have been assaulted on social media relentlessly, being called a relic from the Cold War, a fear-monger, a conspiracy theorist and, my personal favorite, a “paid Zionist troll” because, didn't I know that Mossad is the world sponsor of terrorism? In fact, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is really a Mossad agent. Just ask YouTube.
So I was amused yesterday when I saw the “breaking news” on Twitter that Mahmoud Abbas had been trained by the KGB. Really? We had no idea, did we? This news was “broken” by reporter Oren Nahari of Channel 1 news in Israel, followed closely by Barak Ravid of Haaretz, as well as an astonished tweet by Knesset reporter Lahav Harkov. I just had to laugh.
But the real question is, why is this news “breaking” now? The answer is clear: The “Palestinians” are having an election to determine who will be the next president of the Palestinian Authority. After all, Abu Mazen is now twelve years into his two-year term. Does anyone else smell Eau de Mossad?
You see, while the Arabs have worked with the Russians for many decades, neither one likes nor trusts the other. And while allegations are undoubtedly being hurled that this is yet another “Zionist conspiracy”, the charge alone is enough to make the “Palestinians” squeamish. To what end? Well, personally I see a decided advantage here for Israel, because people are under the insane impression that Fatah is the “peaceful” arm of the PLO (which is a crock). If the “Palestinians” decide Mazen is no longer trustworthy, and choose to elect a Khaled Mashaal or an Ismael Haniyeh to office, no one can doubt that either one is Hamas (the “violent” wing of the PLO), which will then put countries like the United States into one heck of a bind.
It is one thing for us to send “aid” to the Palestinian Authority and then express “outrage” when the money reaches the hands of terrorists. But if a known terrorist is running the PA, then America (and other idiots who cannot see their hands in front of their eyes) can no longer feign ignorance. Not only that, but the United Nations and those members who play “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil” will no longer be able to deny that organizations like UNRWA are not donating to the poor, pitiful “Palestinians” but are in fact aiding and abetting a known terrorist organization.
But there is another possible, more dire, consequence to this “news”; it could put a price on Abbas' head. Remember that Russia, while “fighting” the Islamic State, has also been bombing “rebel” positions in Syria. Some of those “rebels” are “Palestinians”and/or Hamas. What will be the reaction to the news that their leader has been consorting with their enemy?
The next few weeks are going to be extremely entertaining, and I will be posting more articles as new information comes to light.
