I don't even need to add comments...

From the JP...

PA President Mahmoud Abbas on Thursday said that he does not rule out returning to the path of armed "resistance" against Israel and took pride in the fact that he had been the first to fire on Israel and that his organization had trained Hizbullah.

In an interview with the Jordanian daily al-Dustur, Abbas said that he was opposed to an armed struggle against Israel - for the time being.

"At this present juncture, I am opposed to the armed struggle because we can't succeed in it, but maybe in the future things will be different," he said.

The PA president also expressed pride both in himself and his organization, Fatah, for trailblazing the path of resistance.


"I had the honor of firing the first shot in 1965 and of being the one who taught resistance to many in the region and around the world; what it's like; when it is effective and when it isn't effective; its uses, and what serious, authentic and influential resistance is," Abbas said.

"It is common knowledge when and how resistance is detrimental and when it is well timed," he addad. "We (Fatah) had the honor of leading the resistance and we taught resistance to everyone, including Hizbullah, who trained in our military camps."

I posted about this as well Abbas reveals his true face

The most amazing this is that YNet posted this as well (in Hebrew) אבו מאזן: לא שולל חזרה למאבק מזוין בישראל

and just about every talkback (over 200 of them) basically said that the peace process is over, there is no chance etc.

As the old saying goes, fool me once shame on you fool me twice shame on me.

"I had the honor of firing the first shot in 1965..."


But - but - in 1965, there was no Israeli "occupation" of the West Bank, Gaza Strip, or East Jerusalem!

So then, against whom did Abu Mazen initiate this "resistance" in 1965? Who was he shooting when he "fired the first shot"?

Help, I'm so confused...
