PLO Official: Negotiations Will Fail, Time to Take Up Arms


Tawfiq Tirawi, who was found guilty as an accomplice in a 2002 Tel Aviv suicide attack that killed one Israeli woman and injured 29, wants to go back to the business of warfare. It's established, then: every single time Israel negotiates with the Palestinians, it ends in a bloodbath.

A Palestinian state in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip will not be established within the coming 20 years, a member of the Central Committee of the Palestinian Authority’s ruling party Fatah said on Saturday, according to Ma’an.

Tawfiq Tirawi told Beirut-based al-Mayadeen satellite channel on Friday that “It is not possible under any circumstances that a Palestinian state will be established in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip 20 years from now.”

“Those who believe a state can be established are misled, as negotiations will bring nothing,” he added.

Tirawi urged the Palestinians to resume resistance.

“We have to resume action, as action can change many things. I mean resistance in all its aspects, but under a united Palestinian plan agreed by all factions including PLO factions and factions outside the PLO.”

So we went and wikipeded (yes, to wikipede is a verb) Tawfiq Tirawi, just to find out what he means by “resistance.” Turns out he’s not talking peaceful sit-ins.

In 2005, Tirawi was accused of recruiting a Palestinian teenager, Salah al Jitan, to perform a suicide attack. The teenager told his Israeli interrogators that Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade leaders pressured him to carry out a suicide bombing. Tirawi disputed the Israeli account, saying that “the Israelis are liars,” and that the boy had actually come to the brigades volunteering to carry out an attack but they refused to use him since he was the only son in his family.

Humanitarians, every last one of them.

In May, 2007, Tirawi was arrested during an Israeli raid in Shchem, on charges of recruiting and supplying suicide bombers.

In August, 2007, Tirawi was found guilty as an accomplice in a 2002 suicide attack. In the attack, an al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade member left Tirawi’s home in Shchem, and carried out the attack inside Israel, blowing himself up in the Bialik Café in Tel Aviv. Rachel Tcherkhi HY”D was killed in the attack and 29 others were injured.

In other words, Tawfiq Tirawi is a really bad man, and, like Palestinian leaders over a century, is determined to drag his people into a river of blood.

He noted that his movement had not dropped resistance as a choice, including armed resistance. “That was reiterated in the movement’s sixth congress held in Bethlehem.”

The framework agreement which U.S. secretary of state John Kerry is promoting will be refused by the Palestinians, Tirawi promised.

  1. Why are you publishing this?

  2. Just what the Middle East is Missing “ANOTHER EXTREME ISLAMIST STATE”-that spends as much time-begging money from the west as it does killing inocent people

  3. They know that negotiations will fail because they NEVER want peace with Israel! It has been said over and over again that they will never recognize Israel! abbas said it again last week. Israel has been the only side making concessions. But, there the “palestinians” go again with their “Negotiations will fail because of the Israelis”
    It such nonsense as usual from the palestinian side!!!

  4. Cody Flecker says:

    You cannot trat half a cancer, or a quarter cancer. To defeat cancer in your body you need to eradicate all of the cancerous cells. The time has come when everyone in Israel must face the fact that their so called Palestinian Peace Partner is just another cancer that needs to be eradicated. It is time for Palestine to go the way of all cancers that occupied the Middle East. Once and for all, eradicated, and eliminated.

  5. Jill Beach says:

    as a citizen OF EARTH who has nothing to do with your problems, I RESENT THIS THREAT TO HUMANITY BROUGHT TO US!!!!

  6. AC Stubbs says:

    Sec Kerry will say he is misunderstood

  7. Yeah. It’s been a while since the Pals had their tushes handed to them. Every once in a while, they forget what it’s like to be beaten down… and need to be reminded.

  8. time to perhaps teach them who owns all the land once and for all…

  9. Right.. Or is that a command for their children..

  10. THESE ARABS SHOULD MOVE TO JORDAN, MAYBE SOME LIVE IN TERRITORIES IN THE WEST BANK, AND MANY ARE ACTUALLY SAUDI ARABIANS, AND EGYPTIANS ETC AND SHOULD GO BACK TO THEIR NATIVE COUNTRY.

  11. Don Sebold says:

    What have they ever given up….nothing….the Palestinians are a false created people….Kerry,obimbo have no clue with any kind of policy to unite people

  12. Lani Lowell says:

    Absolutely, one move in the take up arms direction and Israel brings in the big reminder. They are warning us, IDF get ready

  13. Lani Lowell says:

    Very good summation of the propaganda campaign the war as are currently peddling

  14. Lani Lowell says:

    It is part of islam they are required to tell the enemy they will attack. This is a formal posting of that warning

  15. abe zelcer says:

    Again i say, israel has to annex all land within 500 miles of its capital jerusalem.

  16. All the Pals should go to their native countries like the Jewish (Israelites, Hebrews) did, Kerry should stay home making "catch up".
