This is in full accord with the intransigence and unwilligness to negotiate that is a hallmark of the jihad ideology. From the Sunday Times, :
PALESTINIAN fighters have revealed that Hezbollah, the militant Lebanese group backed by Iran, is offering to pay for attacks aimed at shattering the fragile truce with Israel. Ariel Sharon, the Israeli prime minister, has made it clear that one suicide bomber in Tel Aviv could prompt him to abandon negotiations with the Palestinian Authority, and may even delay Israel’s disengagement from Gaza, which is planned for July.
In the first concrete evidence of Iranian interference in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict the men, all on Israel’s most wanted list, said they had received payments of up to $9,000 (about Â£4,800) sent by Hezbollah to the West Bank for attacks against Israel during the past four years.
They said that most of the money from Hezbollah had been sent to Islamic Jihad, the militant fundamentalist group that has sent suicide bombers into Israeli cities. The men, members of the al Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades – the military wing of Fatah, the secular group founded by Yasser Arafat – knew of the payments because they liaised with Islamic Jihad in their area, near the West Bank city of Nablus.
“They would send Islamic Jihad money in amounts of something like $4,000,” said Ala’a Sanakreh, the 27-year-old leader of the group. “It’s easy – they just use Western Union.”…
Abbas solidified an agreement to keep the peace two weeks ago in Cairo by persuading 13 of the most radical Palestinian groups, including Hamas and Islamic Jihad, to co-operate….
The money from Hezbollah, which takes its orders from Tehran, appears to be evidence of Iran’s desire to stop a negotiated peace between Israel and the Palestinians.
