Fatah's al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades threaten US and EU

Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen's Fatah's armed wing - the al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades have threatened the US and the EU with terror attacks in response to sanctions against the 'Palestinian Authority.'

A leaflet issued by the Aksa Martyrs Brigades in the Gaza Strip said "We won't remain idle in the face of the siege imposed on the Palestinian people by Israel, the US and other countries. We will strike at the economic and civilian interests of these countries, here and abroad."

The leaflet added: "Let the entire world know that we won't succumb in the face of the policy of blackmail, siege and starvation. In the past we did not capitulate in the face of the policy of assassinations, detentions and air raids."

Another armed group affiliated with Fatah, the 'Abu Rish Brigades' (add that one to your scorecards folks!) threatened a new intifadeh. According to its spokesman, one Abu Haroon:

"This will be a merciless intifada that will destroy everything. We will plan and carry out more martyrdom attacks inside the Green Line regardless of the price and effort. Those who are imposing the sanctions on the Palestinians will soon regret their decision."

For an organization that is supposedly making peace with Israel, Fatah sure has a lot of armed wings....
