PLO Tehran Envoy: Stabbings, Vehicular Attacks, Rockets…It’s All Good

I guess the fact they have an envoy to Tehran alone should tell you the PLO still very much wants Israel’s destruction. But it’s great that big mouths like Salah al-Zawawi make the job easier.

All tactics to combat Israel are justifiable, the Palestine Liberation Organization’s Tehran envoy declared this week.

In a interview published by Lebanon’s Al-Akhbar newspaper on Wednesday — excerpts of which were translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute — Salah al-Zawawi said, “Everyone should fight in their own way, from carrying out stabbing and vehicular attacks to launching rockets. That is how we will liberate Palestine from the river to the sea.”

“Everyone should contribute from where they are, using the means at their disposal and in accordance with their various situations,” he continued. “All means of combat are legitimate in order to realize Allah’s promise for liberation: From [the traditional dance] Dabke to armed struggle.”

Reminder: The PLO supposedly recognized Israel’s right to exist in peace and rejected “violence and terrorism” during Oslo, and our “peace partner” Mahmoud Abbas was until recently (2015) its chairman.

Not surprisingly, this story has not made it into the mainstream media, at least as of the time of this post.

But if it does, I can imagine the headlines.
