PA Ambassador’s Death Reveals Armed Wing of ‘Palestine’s’ Diplomatic Corps
An explosion on the premises of the future Palestinian embassy in Prague-Suchdol killed Palestinian ambassador to the Czech Republic Jamal Al Jamal, 56, but Poice President Martin ÄŒervíÄek said this was not an act of terrorism.
Prague Police spokeswoman Andrea Zoulová said a security system may have exploded on the safe.
A large, illegal weapons stockpile was found Thursday at the home of the Palestinian ambassador in Prague, Jamel al-Jamal, Czech media reported, a day after al-Jamal was killed in an explosion there
Respekt, a Czech weekly newspaper, reported that the arsenal was enough to arm a unit of ten men.
Czech police spokeswoman Andrea Zoulova confirmed that arms had been found in the ambassador’s residence, which is located within a newly constructed Palestinian diplomatic mission in the city.
Channel 2 News reported that the stockpile included heavy firearms, that it was held illegally, and that its existence had not been previously known to the Czech authorities.
Assuming that Jamal was not the one responsible for the explosives and arsenal of weapons, who was?
It seems likely to be this guy:
The first ambassador of the State of Palestine to Prague was Samih Abd al-Fatah, known as Abu Hisham, a veteran of the Palestinian movement who was close to Yasser Arafat. He was Jamal’s superior and diplomacy teacher. As a result, Jamal, too, was Arafat’s man to an extent, a source from the Arab community in Prague told LN.
A State Department cable revealed on Wikileaks describes Abu Hisham as “a close advisor on security affairs to PA President Mahmoud Abbas.”
Is it conceivable that a cache of weapons and explosives could have been hidden at the PLO’s Czech mission without Abu Hisham’s knowledge? And is it conceivable that the decision to have such a weapons cache didn’t come from Ramallah?
The PLO is a Soviet-style top-down organization where very few people are allowed to act or think independently. There is no way that this is peculiar to the Czech mission.
I hope that every PLO office worldwide is being searched now.
All of this makes the EU’s insistence that terror groups can have “political wings” seem rather quaint. Along with the idea that Fatah and the PLO are peace-seeking organizations.
