Palestinian Barbarism

Via Instapundit comes this enlightening story about how Palestinians are being treated by Palestinians:

The report, partly funded by the Finnish government,claims Palestinian cities are in a state of near anarchy, with people on the payroll of Yasser Arafat's Palestinian Authority (PA) blamed for 90 per cent of gangland violence.

It highlights numerous incidents of torture of prisoners and refers to the killing of civilians in gunbattles between Palestinian factions.

It is another blow for Mr Arafat's organisation, which was recently accused of misusing 134 million (pounds) of European Union funds. Mr Arafat was accused of signing cheques to people linked with terrorist activity.

Yes, but you see, the Europeans don't care to see these problems because in their narrow Jew hating worldview all of the trouble is the fault of the "evil Zionists:"

The organisation behind the latest report, the Palestinian Human Rights Monitoring Group (PHRMG), has won few friends for its work documenting human rights violations against Palestinians in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem.

Although it has been strongly critical of Israeli treatment of Palestinians, its criticism of the PA has seen its funding by European governments slashed.

Of course, there had to be this added as well:

The report does lay some of the blame for the violence at the feet of Israel. It says that the failure to reach a substantive and acceptable peace agreement has led Palestinians to vent their feelings of futility against Palestinians.

Well yes, the Palestinians are brutalizing and murdering the Palestinians in Palestinian controlled territory, but it's only because they are frustrated with Israel. I see, their point is that the "Zionists" are making them do it! And the neo-Chamberlain Jew hating Arab apologist bobbleheads in the EU nod in agreement. Pathetic.

Do read the whole thing as I seriously doubt that the American media will give this much coverage.
