You mean the Hamas, terrorist organization itself. LOL! Isn't that like the pot calling the kettle black? They're just playing chicken-little now because they know the gunsights will be on them next.
Palestinian terror groups decry US attacks
By Steve Weizman, The Associated Press September, 12 2001
JERUSALEM, (AP) Palestinian groups which have admitted past attacks on Israeli civilians were at pains today to distance themselves from the devastating events in New York and Washington.
Abdel Aziz al-Rantissi, a spokesman for Hamas, said the radical Islamic organization had no involvement with yesterday's suicide attacks in the United States. Hamas has repeatedly trained and equipped suicide bombers for missions into Israeli cities that have killed hundreds of people over the years.
"Our jihad (holy war) is against the Zionist enemy and not against American civilians, or American targets," he said. "We are against the policy of the United States but we are not against the American people."
Islamic Jihad leader Nafez Azzam took an identical line, but added the charge that Israel was exploiting the airborne attacks in the United States to distract attention from its own actions against the Palestinians.
"The Islamic Jihad war will continue against the Zionist enemy because they are our enemy, no one else," he said.
Israel has said its strikes against Palestinian targets are aimed at stopping terror attacks in Israel.
Another radical Palestinian group, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, also denied it was connected in any way to yesterday's carnage. A PFLP spokesman, who only identified himself as Jibril, said he thought the attacks were too complex and demanding to be the work of a single group.
"I think its something bigger, it's not us and I don't think it's an Islamic group," he said.
Yet the tightly coordinated hijacking of four aircraft yesterday sounded echoes of an operation in September 1970, when PFLP members seized three planes, flew them to Jordan and blew them up after releasing the passengers.
Palestinian political analyst Ghassan a-Khatib agreed that the scale of yesterday's assault was too large to have been the work of known Palestinian groups.
"This is extremely sophisticated, bigger than any of the groups we already know," he said. "Something like this takes a very big, very strong, very sophisticated group, one which is well integrated into US society."
Khatib did not, however, believe that a hostile government was behind the attacks. "I don't think there is a state which would dare to launch a war against the United States," he said.
US authorities are focusing their suspicions on Osama bin Laden, a Saudi Arabian millionaire and terror mastermind.
In my book, the terrorist acts yesterday started WWIII, which is a war between us and our allies, AGAINST THE ISLAMIC JIHAD. That is the bottom line.
If any nation or faction anywhere supports Islamic Jihad, they are our enemy.
