Interview with a Terrorist
I just saw radio talk show host Rusty Humphries being interviewed on FOX News' Hannity & Colmes show. The guy interviewed members of Fatah in Israel. His summary was that they were nice (and he didn't offer any follow up to their lying rhetoric). They served him tea, they were cordial. Of course, when he describes what he went through to have it, it sounds scarily similar to what Daniel Pearl went through. The guy knows Aaron Klein from World Net Daily, who also wrote about it, so he obviously knows the score but still... Anyway, here's the gist of what he said on their show (it's only a small portion of his interview). You can find out more from that link above.
What do you want to accomplish?
Should we be afraid of you?
You're here safe and calm. We are defending our rights. We want our land occupied since 1948 [note that he didn't say since 1967; he means with the creation of Israel, again making clear they don't want a state next to Israel but in place of it.]. We are fighting back for our rights.
Suicide terrorism scares people. Ever think of stopping it?
We wanted to. We declared a cease fire. But Israelis don't help us to maintain it. They daily kill Palestinians. They come into our villages. They came a few hours ago. We had clashes and blood. We don't go to their camps. Koran says use violence against those who use violence against you.
How does it stop?
Let them stop. Who comes to who? It's the Israelis who come to our cities. Or am I the one who goes? not us going into theirs.
How did Arafat die? Naturally or poison?
Poison. Everyone knows that.
What about the rumors that he died of AIDS?
Cut off head to anyone who says that to my face.
72 Virgins? Is it true?
Yes, it's in the Koran. (He asked to see the verse. They could never find the verse. A little embarrassing for them, he said.)
Monica was sent to the White House so Jews could control the country. Everyone knows that.
Said nothing is their fault. It's Israel's, America's, George Bush's.
