Israel, via their Defense Forces, working in conjunction with U.S. Security coordinators, will protect the main West Bank highway that Obama will be traveling on to approach Ramallah, then his security will be turned over to the Palestinians with security being planned with the U.S. security forces.
According to security officials coordinating deployments of forces with the PA for Obama's Ramallah visit, members of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, Fatah's declared military wing, have been called upon by the PA to participate in the protection of Obama, particularly in securing the perimeter during a scheduled meeting with PA President Mahmoud Abbas.
The Brigades is listed as a terror organization by the U.S. State Department. The group took credit along with the Islamic Jihad terror organization for every suicide bombing in Israel between 2005 and 2006 and is responsible for thousands of shootings and rocket firings. Statistically, the Al Aqsa Brigades perpetuated more terrorism from the West Bank than Hamas, according to the Israeli Defense Forces.
Brigades leaders, speaking to WND on condition of anonymity, confirmed they will participate in protecting Obama as official members of the PA's security forces.
I wonder if standing side by side with members of al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades will be included in the "photo ops" that the media has been publishing about Obama's trip.
Terrorists guarding the Democratic presumptive nominee.... now that is change I can believe in.
