Abbas' advisor sends Hezbollah "our best wishes for its ‎Martyrs"‎

On Jan. 18, 2015, Hezbollah commander Jihad Mughniyeh was killed in an Israeli ‎airstrike. Following Mughniyeh’s death, Abbas' advisor and Fatah Central Committee ‎member Sultan Abu Al-Einein posted this text on his official Facebook page:‎
     ‎"While Hezbollah escorts this group of Martyrs (Shahids) [to Paradise], it is fully aware ‎that Israel is afraid and waiting [for its reaction]...‎ We convey to Hezbollah our best wishes for its Martyrs, and are certain that its ‎reaction is inevitable, and that it will not pass over this crime in silence... And if we go ‎back and quickly analyze the words of Secretary-General of Hezbollah Hassan ‎Nasrallah, [we will see] that he has many options at his disposal, and Israel ‎understands that all these options are now on the table.‎ This brings us to the inescapable conclusion that Israel, which opened a door without ‎knowing what would come through it, gambled with the lives and security of millions of ‎settlers and soldiers when it assassinated members and commanders of Hezbollah. ‎Moreover, this shows that Israel is unaware of what the price would be of this gamble, ‎which the prime minister of Tel Aviv (i.e., Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu) ‎believed would tip the votes in his favor...‎ No one in the entire world would want to be in Israel's prime minister Benjamin ‎Netanyahu's shoes right now, after his face was wallowed in the dust of Paris, the ‎Hague and New York, and after it will wallow [in the dust] under the weight of Beirut, ‎Jerusalem, Ramallah, Hebron, Jenin, Gaza, Tel Aviv, Haifa, Jaffa, Rahat and the ‎Negev.‎ In conclusion, if he has even a drop of dignity left, and if he wishes to keep it, he must ‎make the decision himself to leave politics, after having heightened Israel's isolation, ‎dragged it to the International Criminal Court, and inflamed its northern front - for he ‎will surely be dismissed, and ultimately imprisoned in Israel or by the international ‎community, which has had enough of him."‎
