Hamas parliament member Dr. Salah Bredvil during a Hamas-affiliated website interview stated the atmosphere for PA (Palestinian Authority) residents throughout Yehuda and Shomron is similar to the situation prior to the outbreak of the Intifada in 1987. He warned that the situation will not be tolerated and a powder keg is about to erupt.
“The first Intifada erupted as a result of the crimes of a Kahane gang, and the Palestinians decided to restore their honor.” The Hamas parliament member added that “today, there is an effort to eliminate the Palestine issue with Annapolis and the Roadmap Plan.” He stated as a result, he believes another Intifada is on the horizon and emphasized PA residents are no longer afraid, and they will restore their honor and change realities forever.
Responding to the comments, Itamar Ben-Gavir stated, “Today, the Arabs claim an Intifada will begin as a result of events in Chevron. In the case of the previous Intifada they blamed it on the occupation. In 1967 it was because Israel is a state and exists. In 1948 it was because we are Jews. The Arabs are always looking for a reason. We aren’t afraid and we are not deterred.”
