Fatah’s Nabil Shaath: Do We Have To Hijack Your Planes And Destroy Your Airports Again?

With thanks to Winds of Jihad and The Middle East Media Research Institute, here is Fatah Central Committee member Nabil Shaath wearing a nice suit and tie, interviewed on the Palestinian Awdha TV channel.  He doesn’t trust the United States to be involved in this decades-long (endless) negotiation process between Palestine and Israel over the “Occupied Territory” – which means Israel.  Which means that Fatah’s (and Hamas’) objective in the negotiations is to get rid of Israel.  Seriously.

The reasoning behind this line of thought is simply Muslim doctrine – which says that once Islam conquers a particular territory, it is eternally Muslim property.  Any such land subsequently lost in war to a non-Muslim adversary must ultimately be re-conquered and re-claimed for Islam.  Yes.  Indeed.

Further, since the real estate which is now Israel was once part of the Ottoman Turk Empire, the Israelis have to give it up and go somewhere else – to Europe, to the United States, to Antarctica, to the moon, into the sea, to Hell – anywhere but where they now live.  And damn the United Nations for setting aside the territory for the sovereign State of Israel.  Israel’s very existence is intolerable to the World of Islam.  It’s a cultural thing, you see.

And, to punctuate the message, Shaath reminds us of the Palestinian Yasser Arafat’s history of hijacking airliners and destroying airports, which could very well happen again if we don’t get serious about this occupied territory negotiation business.  He’s just trying to get our attention.

About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.
