Fayyad lectures Israel about the path to peace
Posted by Viv on October 8, 2010
Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salem Fayyad responded harshly to the IDF’s killing of two Hamas terrorists on Friday.
“The path to peace does come by way of killing our citizens, harming them, establishing settlements or the terror of settlers,” said Fayyad.
[NOTE: I’m sure the writer from the JP meant to quote him saying peace does NOT come by way of killing]
He’s right about part of that – the part about killing citizens doesn’t lead to peace. What he fails to mention, conveniently of course, is that the IDF attacked Hamas terrorists who were responsible for the prior murder of four innocent Israeli citizens.
The suspects were members of Hamas’s Izzadine al-Kassam terror brigades and both of those killed were said by the IDF to have been involved in the terror attack on Route that killed four Israelis.
Here is more about the four Israeli citizens and Israel’s initial reaction.
The four were two couples – one aged 25 and the other 40. One of the woman was pregnant. According to eyewitness reports, the terrorists succeeded in hitting the passengers in their initial fire but then approached the car and shot them occupants at close range.
“This is very grave incident,” Barak said. “The IDF and Israeli security forces will do everything they can to capture the murderers. Israel will not allow terrorists to lift their heads and will exact a price from the murderers and those who sent them. This is likely an attempt by the low-life terrorists to prevent the diplomatic process and to hurt the chances of the talks opening in Washington.”
Unless Fayyad and the Palestinian citizens reign in the Hamas terrorists who have already sworn vengeance AGAIN, they are complicit in destroying the path to peace. Fayyad’s finger-pointing at Israel only makes him a hypocrite.
The bleeding heart liberals are probably already shrieking in outrage about this “unwarranted” attack on “innocent” civilians. Or worse, they will justify the deaths of the Israelis because the terrorists were jailed in Israel and then released last year. They had a right to be angry about their imprisonment and kill that pregnant woman, after all. Naturally they are the only ones to understand the true path to peace. What could Israel possibly know about that? [eye roll]
