Isba was one of 12 terrorists who snuck into Israel from Lebanon, hijacked 2 buses, killed 38 Israelis, including 13 children, and wounding another 71 passengers. These are the people Rachel Corrie got turned into a dirt latke for...no wonder her mother is so proud. Of the 12, Isba was one of two that survived. He was released from prison after only seven years in jail as part of a prisoner exchange.
Surprised at being allowed back in the country, Isba says he's not going to leave, and is going to bring his family to live with him. Why so surprised Khalid? You're making it a lot easier for Israel to follow you.
Other Fatah leaders plan to urge forging an alliance with Iran.
From all reports, Fatah seems very pumped up about voting to continue to reject recognizing Israel, and for renewing violence against Jews. I have a feeling that Israelis as just as pumped at the thought of the convention site being sucked into a black hole, or that all the attendees stepped on a giant land mine.
Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz considers Fatah's rejection of Israel's existence a declaration of war."The refusal to acknowledge Israel as a Jewish state, the demand for a withdrawal to the 1967 lines and for the full right of return for Palestinian refugees - this means wiping Israel out of existence. We must adopt a clear stance in the face of these positions."
