Abu Mazen's security adviser calls for 'armed resistance'

Former 'Palestinian' intelligence chief Tawfik Tirawai, who is currently 'moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen's security adviser, has issued a call for 'armed resistance' in light of the fact that the 'Palestinians' are not being offered everything they want in the current 'negotiations.'

"As things stand, we won't have a Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza Strip even 20 years from now. Therefore, we should consider resuming the path of armed resistance. Maybe that will bring about change," Tirawi told the Lebanese news channel Al-Mayadeen.

Tirawi, the PA's former intelligence chief, stressed that the Palestinian will not agree to the outline currently promoted by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and warned that both the Palestinians and Israel should prepare for the security escalation that is sure to follow.

"All Palestinian factions agree that we must reject Kerry's plan. We cannot accept any of the principles detailed in it … We have to work towards an agreement that would include all of the [Palestinian] factions -- those under the PLO's leadership and those external to it," he said, referring to Hamas and the Islamic Jihad.

Asked whether resuming violence does not counter the principles set by Abbas himself following the Second Intifada, Tirawi noted that the Palestinians "have never forsaken the path of diplomacy, just like we have never forsaken the path of armed resistance, which is an inseparable part of how we work."

Fatah, he noted, "does not dismiss any path that may help us realize the Palestinian vision of having an independent state with Jerusalem as its capital."
A new violent intifada is probably the inevitable result of the inevitable failure of the current 'negotiations.' But at least John FN Kerry got to spend some time in the limelight.

What could go wrong?
