RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- President Mahmoud Abbas held a meeting of security chiefs on Thursday after gunmen held protests in West Bank refugee camps over the past week.

The president said that no one is above the law, stressing that the government has a monopoly on the use of force, in comments carried by the official Wafa news agency.

Abbas issued instructions to the security services to intensify their efforts to maintain security in accordance with the law, Wafa said.

Over the past week, gunmen claiming affiliation to Fatah's military wing held protests in Nablus' Balata refugee camp and the Jenin camp.

They say they are protesting confiscation of their weapons by Palestinian Authority security forces and detention of group members.

The protesters call themselves resistance fighters who support the president, targeting blame for the security crackdown on PA security officials. Fatah's military wing officially disbanded in the aftermath of the second intifada.

Alternatively arm every Palestinian, teach them how to defend themselves, and make each a soldier for Palestine. Palestinians have real enemies who shoot them. Has the President decided how many more of his citizens must die by the foreign invaders hands? Will he allow his people to defend themselves? You have legal borders: you know where they are. Create the disciplined force you need to defend them.

Where is Charelston Heston and the NRA when needed. Am I allowed to print his name here. After all he was Moses in the Ten Commandments and Yehudah Ben-Hur in the movie of the same name.

'Abbas stresses govt has monopoly on force.' Given that Israel has it, that's a mildly absurd statement.

Probably you dont know why these guys protest ... they protest the intelligence and police forces that are directed directly by the CIA like "preemptive Security" and "Intelligence" forces that a CIA officer said once: "they are our property" .. these police forces have the upper hand to ensure security for the zionists and they are notorious for torture and even killing Palestinian fighters ... as I said ages ago (You will never be able to control a whole ocupied people fighting for freedom)

But Abbas forgot to mention that his government has also monopoly to use aid money. I bet Abbas & Sons like that monopoly a lot. They know how to use it very well - they accumulated a lot of money in Swiss, Dubai and Qatar bank accounts using those both monopolies.
