"Moderate" Fatah vows to attack Jews in Israel

More peaceful statements from the Palestinian "moderates."

From Now Lebanon:
The residents of the Ain al-Hiweh Palestinian camp in Lebanon went on strike Monday as they closed the camp’s entrances to protest Sunday’s killings of protestors on the Golan Heights border by Israeli gunfire.

NOW Lebanon’s correspondent reported that the protestors in Ain al-Hilweh blocked the camps entrances with flaming tires, and rallied in the area.

Fatah commander in Lebanon Mounir Maqdah, based in the camp, vowed to “retaliate from inside Israel,” after several protestors on the Golan borders were killed by Israeli gunfire on the anniversary of the 1967 Six-Day War.

I never could figure out how Palestinian Arabs in Lebanon think they are helping their cause by setting fires at the entrances to their own communities, or by going on strike where the only people they would hurt are themselves.

No doubt they are very proud at their ability to act in a self-defeating manner.
