More Peaceful Palestinian Intentions

[Abbas in front of picture of famous truth-teller, Yasser Arafat]
from Haaretz today -
Western-backed Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas says his people must not "mar their legitimate struggle with terror" and that while his government seeks peace with Israel, it reserves the right to resort to "resistance."

Abbas spoke Tuesday to about 2,200 Fatah delegates gathered in the West Bank. The meeting is the first first convention held by the movement in two decades.
Presumably he said this with a straight face.
