Message from DAVID BEDEIN, CENTER FOR NEAR EAST POLICY RESEARCHIn the event a Palestinian state is created, should we expect similar murders of Israelis every time Palestinian Arabs feel the need to protest some action of their Israeli neighbors?
Help us publicize these basic facts for the American and Israeli public to know whom they are dealing with…before, during and after the Annapolis summitWANTED FOR MURDER OF IDO ZOLDAN: MACHMUD ABBAS, A.K.A. ABU MAZEN
The Al Aksa Brigades of the Fatah, commanded by Machmud Abbas, aka Abu Mazen, proudly took immediate credit for the drive by murder of Ido Zoldan, age 29, father of two little children, on Monday night.
Meanwhile, Abbas refuses to disarm or disband the Al Aksa Brigades of the Fatah which operate under his direct command.
Even worse: Neither the Israel nor the American government demand that Abbas disarm or disband the Al Aksa Brigades, even though the Al Aksa Brigades has been defined as an illegal terrorist organization by both the US and Israeli governments.
Even worse: both the US and Israel offer arms and ammunition to Abbas.
Do the American and Israeli people know this?
Help us publicize these basic facts for the American and Israeli public to know whom they are dealing with…before, during and after the Annapolis summit.

About Ido Zildan z"l
On Nov 19, 2007 - Ido Zoldan, 29, of Shavei Shomron was killed in a shooting attack near Kedumim in the northern West Bank, when terrorists opened fire from a passing car at around 11:30 pm.
A terrorist cell was waiting in ambush near Kedumim, in Samaria, for Israeli vehicles. When Ido, who was riding alone, came into range, the enemy attackers sprayed the vehicle with gunfire. Ido was mortally wounded. Paramedics who arrived at the scene were unable to save his life. The Fatah Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades claimed responsibility for the terror attack as "an act of protest against the Annapolis conference."
Ido was born and raised in Kedumim, where he met his wife, Tehila. They had also "adopted" a group of Ethiopian children, helping them integrate into Israeli life.
Ido Zoldan was buried in Kedumim. He is survived by his wife Tehila and his two small children, three-year-old Aharon and one-year-old Rachel.
