leave a comment »

That Abbas would make this statement before the election is good news. From the AP at Yahoo! News – Abbas Calls for End of Armed Uprising: “It is important to ‘keep the uprising away from arms because the uprising is a legitimate right of the people to express their rejection of the occupation by popular and social means,’ Abbas said.

‘Using the weapons was harmful and has got to stop,’ Abbas said, referring to shootings and bombings by Palestinian militants that have killed hundreds of Israelis since the outbreak of fighting in September 2000.”
