Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said Thursday that he does not completely rule out the possibility of resuming the armed conflict with Israel.Nice of Abbas to highlight the fact that the creation of Fatah had nothing to do with land captured by Israel in the Six Day War. Maybe someone should ask Abu Mazen just how he defines occupation.
In an interview to the Jordanian newspaper al-Dustur, Abbas said that he is against an armed conflict at this time, but things may differ in the future.
Abbas, a leading figure of the Palestine Liberation organization, was quoted as boasting about the fact that he was the one to "fire the first bullet of the resistance" back in 1965, adding it was the PLO that taught many around the world "how to resist, when resistance is most effective and when it is not."
"I had the honor to lead… we taught everyone, including the Hizbullah, the ways of resistance. They were all educated in our training camps." [emphasis added]
