On the way to his Nobel Peace Prize
Not that Bush, Rice, or anyone else who have so much hope invested in this man will care to notice.
“Abbas: ‘Armed resistance not ruled out,'” from the Jerusalem Post (thanks to all who sent this in):
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 armed struggle because we cannot succeed in it, but maybe in the future things will be different,” he said.
The PA president also expressed pride both in himself and in his organization, Fatah, for trailblazing the path of resistance.
Ah, a real point of pride!
