The Definitive Proof # 3897

Israel's supporters (which, by definition, excludes the various peaceniks) have contended for years that the PA, the PLO and the other variations on the theme have but one objective: the destruction of Israel. To the many proofs offered to substantiate this statement, today's Jerusalem Post brings yet another proof.
In an interview to a Nazareth weekly, Farouk Kaddoumi (described as "the only senior PLO leader to remain in Tunis following the signing of the Oslo Accords") stated the following:
Asked if there was any difference between his positions and those of Hamas, which calls for the elimination of Israel and the establishment of an Islamic state in all of Palestine, the veteran PLO official said: "We were never different from Hamas. Hamas is a national movement. Strategically, there is no difference between us."
Not that this latest, unequivocal statement will change the mind of Powell, Blair and other appeasers...
