What’s that? You thought that after the Gaza withdrawal we would have Peace In Our Time?
From Israel National News, with thanks to Sr. Soph:
Palestinian Authority official Nasser Al-Kidwa told an Arabic-language London newspaper, “There is no such thing as ‘disarming’, nor will there be.”
Repeating the position expressed in many variations by PA officials in recent months, Al-Kidwa, responsible for the foreign relations of the PA, told Al-Hayat this week that the only step that would be taken is an “organization of arms” by agreement among all PA terrorist groups. The PA position on the matter would not change, Al-Kidwa declared, until “the Palestinian situation changes entirely.”
In that regard, Al-Kidwa blamed Israel [you don’t say! — RS] for the security situation in the PA, saying, “The Palestinians are still under Israeli occupation.” The PA militias and police, he claimed, are in disarray and short of basic military supplies and training facilities due to Israeli policies.
