This ought to make you feel good...
Four terror groups, including the Palestinian Authority's Fatah party have announce that they will officially target America for "attacking Muslim land" in Israel, Iraq and Afghanistan, and for providing support to their avowed enemies, the Israeli Defense Forces.
"We call upon all mujahedeen in Palestine and around the world to start hitting Americans without mercy. The Americans are destroying Palestine, Iraq and Afghanistan and are bombarding our Muslim land," read a statement signed by Fatah's Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, the Popular Resistance Committees, the Fatah-affiliated Abu Rish Brigades, and a new group calling itself the Brigades of the Believers.
Uh-oh... It must be about time to cut off all of that foreign aid money. Maybe not being able to pay their bills with our money will dissuade them from this latest round of threats.
"The Americans seem not to understand any language but that of blood and violence. We say the Americans have an artificial culture. It is a country that doesn't respect the blood of innocents. Americans only take into consideration the blood of the Jews,"
Well there's a sterling example of hypocrisy, wouldn't you say? It would be laughable if it weren't serious!
Meanwhile, last week Palestinian terrorists fired Qassam rockets into Jewish neighborhoods, and when the IDF responded to the missile fire in turn, one of their rockets misfired into a Palestinian population a mere third of a mile from the firing zone, killing 19.
Did Ehud Olmert say, (As I would've.) "too bad. Stop using civilian areas as staging zones, and stop attacking us if you don't like it!"?
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert apologized for the Palestinian deaths and called for immediate peace talks with Abbas, stating the Palestinian leader "will be surprised at how far I am willing to go."
Olmert said he is willing to free "many, many Palestinian prisoners."
More capitulation, huh? Hey, keep it up, it's BOUND to work sooner or later... *cough*
But hey, Israel didn't do it alone, apparently:
Abu Abir's comments followed a statement last week by Hamas also blaming the U.S. for Palestinian deaths. The statement warned of upcoming Hamas attacks against the U.S. and urged Arabs and Muslims to "teach the American enemy merciless lessons they will not forget."
Aren't you glad that Pelosi is going to be the new Speaker?
