Posted text: "Headline: Al-Jaghoub: Israel is reaping the results of its choosing force against our Palestinian people"
     "The Fatah Movement stated in a notice from the Mobilization and Organization Commission" that the Tel Aviv operation (i.e., terror attack, 4 murdered) which occurred last night is a private and spontaneous natural response to Israel's choosing force...
Head of the Information Committee of the Fatah Mobilization and Organization Commission Munir Al-Jaghoub said: 'Israel needs to understand the results of its actions, [which are] a continuation of the promotion of the option of violence and the policy of demolishing homes and expelling residents of Jerusalem, and the ongoing invasions of the Al-Aqsa Mosque plaza by the herds of settlers... and the cold blooded murder of Palestinians at their checkpoints, which are spread through the territories occupied since 1967.'
He added in regard to the Tel Aviv operation, that it comes after all the Israeli voices silenced all the calls for peace, and the lack of the realization of any vision that guarantees the Palestinian people's rights. He emphasized the Israeli occupation's clear turn toward the option of disproportionate military force, which does not differentiate between a Palestinian old man, women, or child... Al-Jaghoub emphasized that Israel's refusal to obey all the international conventions and agreements which obligate it to cease the criminal settlement on our Palestinian land, and its last declared refusal of the French initiative, have strengthened its vision that leads it to its goals of expansion and the realization of its racist projects, against all the principles of recognition of the rights of the Palestinian people...
[He said that] Israel must end the occupation of our lands and leave them, and that to believe in a true peace - far from the daily violence and humiliation.
