I am posting it separately as well because of the importance of the way the Palestinian Minister excuses the murder of children:
Dr. Aaron Lerner, Director of IMRA, placed a phone call today to S'ad Nimr, Minister of PA Detainees, and asked about PA policy with regard to the current PA demand for the release of all "detainees" (which includes all Palestinian Arabs in Israeli prisons for terrorist acts).Yes, replied Nimr. Palestinians have "a right" and "an obligation" to "resist the occupation."
Asked Lerner, would the PA also demand the release of the two men just caught by Israeli authorities in connection with the murders in Itamar? Well, said Nimr, we don't know if the accusations are accurate. Assuming for the moment that they are, said Lerner, would the PA include these men in their demand that detainees be released?
Yes, replied Nimr. Palestinians have "a right" and "an obligation" to "resist the occupation."
Be very clear on this: a PA minister is justifying (as an "obligation") the brutal murder of children because of the "occupation."
This, of course, is no different from Hamas. Our "peace partners."
You can hear it all on Youtube. (Lerner's questions were not perfect in transmission, but the answers are quite clear.)
Kol hakavod (well done!) to Aaron Lerner on this.
No need to apologize, Nimr--just remember that when Israeli children are targeted by Palestinian terrorists, we have certain rights and obligations too.
