Today Palestinian Preseident Blasted the homicide bombing in Eilat, which was claimed by Islamic Jihad and the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, a group that is part of Fatah, which is run by Abbas.
Are you following Me Here ? Its His Group !! The Guy orders a bombing and then condemns it !! This guy has all the skills of his predecessor Arafat, may his name be blotted out from memory. He says one thing for worldwide consumption so he appears to be a “moderate” and does just the opposite in private. He is worse than Hamas. At least Hamas doesn’t try to hide their true intentions.
YNET Palestinian president condemns suicide bombing Abbas says attack ‘does not benefit’ Palestinians, states he believes bombing will not impact ceasefire with Israel Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Tuesday condemned a suicide bombing by Palestinian terrorists that killed three people in the resort town of Eilat a day earlier. Abbas told reporters in Cairo after talks with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak that he did not expect the bombing to disrupt a shaky two-month-old ceasefire between Israel and Palestinians in Gaza. “My position regarding this operation is that I do not accept it and I reject and condemn it. There was no need at all, and it does not benefit us at all. I do not think that this operation in particular will impact the calm between us and the Israelis in the Gaza Strip,” Abbas said. Israeli Defense Minister Amir Peretz told parliament on Monday that Israel would protect its citizens while doing everything to maintain the ceasefire. Monday’s bombing was claimed by Islamic Jihad and the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, part of Abbas’ Fatah faction, which said in a statement the operation was a response to Israel’s “Attempts to defile al-Aqsa mosque” in Jerusalem, a reference to recent archaeological excavations.
