'Moderate' Abu Mazen doesn't rule out return to 'armed resistance'

George Bush, Condi Rice and Ehud K. Olmert's favorite 'moderate' terrorist - Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen Bluff - told a Jordanian newspaper that he's proud of having been the first to shoot at Israel (in 1965 - before there was an 'occupation'), and of his organization having trained Hezbullah, and that he does not rule out a return to the path of 'armed resistance.'
In an interview with the Jordanian daily al-Dustur, Abbas said that he was opposed to an armed struggle against Israel - for the time being.

"At this present juncture, I am opposed to the armed struggle because we can't succeed in it, but maybe in the future things will be different," he said.

The PA president also expressed pride both in himself and his organization, Fatah, for trailblazing the path of resistance.

"I had the honor of firing the first shot in 1965 and of being the one who taught resistance to many in the region and around the world; what it's like; when it is effective and when it isn't effective; its uses, and what serious, authentic and influential resistance is," Abbas said.

"It is common knowledge when and how resistance is detrimental and when it is well timed," he addad. "We (Fatah) had the honor of leading the resistance and we taught resistance to everyone, including Hizbullah, who trained in our military camps."
Could someone please remind me why this guy is any different than Arafat, who also kept the terror option in his back pocket when he was 'making peace.' But give them a state reichlet in Judea, Samaria and Gaza, with 'free passage' between them, and they'll be happy and let us be a 'normal country.' Right Ehud?

Difference from Arafat--Abu Mazen wears a suit and not a keffiyeh, plus he has a Ph.D.--even if it is in Holocaust denial. Oh, yeah, Arafat's likely in hell already.
