The Palestinian Authority’s ambassador to Libya said the majority of attacks carried out during the Second Intifada were done so by members of the Palestinian Security Forces, The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) reported on Monday.

MEMRI published a recording of Mutawakkil Tahah on Al-Jazeera saying, “When the 2000-2001 Intifada broke out, it turned out that 70% of the martyrs, and of the people who carried out attacks against the occupation, were members of the Palestinian security forces,” adding, “even when [Israel] establishes [our] security forces, these security forces remain patriotic and continue to fight the occupation.”

The Second Intifada was launched in 2000 and lasted nearly five years. Roughly 3,000 Palestinian Arabs and 1,000 Israelis died during the conflict.

The video, captured by MEMRI, can be viewed below:

    I still don’t understand why the media doesn’t get it. Surely the truth would sell just as well as lies and propaganda.

    Is there anything worse than Al-Jazeera taking the most abysmal hate from the Mideast and bringing it to the West?

    This is as patriotic as the Nazis killing Jews for their homeland.

    These are true partners for peace! NOT. When will the world believe their own words?

  • Straightshooter

    Typical! Does this surprise anyone? Who says the PA wants peace? They should be judged by their actions, not their words.

      So true. Tell me again why Israel is releasing all of those murderers?
