Fatah Condones Terror Against Israeli Civillians

No sign of abatement of any sort
Israel's relentless fight against indiscriminate Palestinian terror was further justified after the Saudi daily " Ukaz" published on November 6, 2002 that the Fatah Central Committee headed by Yasser Arafat, has condoned suicide attacks against soldiers and Israeli civilians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

The Central Committee emphasized the continuation of the armed struggle, and the right of the Palestinians to pursue their struggle in the ' 67 territories.

This policy, accepting terror as a legitimate weapon, has been espoused recently by none other than the new Palestinian Interior Minister Hani Al - Hassan, who does not oppose suicide attacks against Israeli settlers. Moreover, Palestinian officials have stated that the minister supports the military wing of the Fatah- the Al - Aqsa Martyrs Brigades- and opposed their dismantling. One must be aware that the Al- Aqsa Martyrs Brigades appear on the European and U.S lists of terrorist organizations.
