The peace of Hudaibiyeh: Aqsa Martyrs Brigades: Truce over

Headline: Aksa Martyrs Brigades: Truce over. Did anyone notice a truce? Did the rockets and mortars from Gaza stop falling in Sderot for even a few days? But aside from that, there is a very discouraging lesson to be learned here, for those who want their history to be edifying.

What it is all about:


The group said the decision was made after the IDF arrested two Fatah gunmen who had been given amnesty by Israel in line with understandings reached between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

Israel agreed last month to stop pursuing some 270 Fatah fugitives on condition that they surrender their weapons and sign a pledge to refrain from terrorist activities.

Earlier this week, the PA said Israel had "pardoned" another 110 Fatah fugitives in the West Bank - a claim that Israel denied.

The latest leaflet is seen as a challenge to PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas's efforts to dismantle the Aksa Martyrs Brigades and other Fatah-linked armed groups in the West Bank.

According to the group, Israel on Monday night arrested Iyad Bisharat and Ahmed Abu Jalboush, two Fatah gunmen whose names had appeared on the first list of pardoned fugitives.


The basic idea is that there is no rule of law. Groups like Al-Aqsa brigades make their own laws, interpret agreements as they wish and try to become, in effect, the government. A peace agreement signed with the Palestinian authority, will always be at the mercy of these groups, as long as they exist.  

All agreements will always be torn up, as soon as the slightest excuse can be found. Since only they interpret the agreements and the evidence, they can always find an excuse. This is a very old technique, which Muhamad used to break the Hudna (truce) of Hudaibiyeh. It is a very bad omen for the future, and a very poor model for building trust.
