TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma'an) -- Senior Israeli army officials say the Israeli government should strengthen the Fatah-led Palestinian Authority to avoid Hamas gains in elections next year, the Hebrew-language newspaper Maariv reported Thursday.

Israeli officers advocate giving more permits for Palestinians in the West Bank to work in Israel, approving job creation programs and opening more roads between cities in the West Bank, the report says.

Coordination between PA security forces and Israel must be preserved, army officers told Maariv, adding that PA forces contributed to the "war on terror" in addition to maintaining law and order.

But officers say Israel should focus on civil programs in the West Bank in order to stop Hamas, which rules the Gaza Strip, gaining a foothold in the West Bank in elections next year, the report said.

Yes, Israeli Army Officers, breeding and bribing more collaborators suits your style doesn't it? Is it that a few too many of the IDF are now crazy loons from illegal settlements, versus your precious middle class young, ever more reluctant to perpetuate the tyranny and brutality of an illegal occupation?

If the Israeli officers in the army are the ones who are advocating this, then Netanyahu better get his butt in gear and do it. The best thing in the world for peace is for Israeli and Palestinian forces to cooperate with each other to make sure that would be terrorists and only the trouble making settlers (some of them are real jerks) others just want to live on the land and would galdly cooperate with Palestinians. Both people sharing the land, it could work, I really hope that one day it wil
