Op-ed in official PA daily supports suicide attacks against Israelis

Article by Mahmoud Al-Habbash in his regular column

Headline: "Fiction falls, and long live the truth"
"The truth can be told here, that it is not surprising that the Israelis carry out these massacres, for that is what they are like, as the Quran said: 'You will surely find the most intense of the people in animosity toward the believers [to be] the Jews and those who associate others with Allah.' (Sura 5:82)
But what is strange – and distasteful in light of all the criminal deeds [committed by] Israelis – is the sluggish Arab position and the international conspiracy that encourages and entices the criminals in Olmert's Nazi government to follow the footsteps of their predecessors, i.e. aggression against our people… This new Israeli criminal deed in Gaza will be – and moreover should be – the basis for natural Palestinian reactions whatever form and dimension they may take, because for every action there is a reaction. Daily Israeli attacks and crimes like these – must be met by Palestinian resistance in every manner presently possible, including suicide attacks, as is to be expected. That will require… informational and political stimuli… through a realistic informational campaign that will explain to the world that all Palestinian responses to Israeli aggression are no more than legitimate self-defense… so that Palestinian truth will vanquish Israeli fiction."
