Palestinians To Israel: We Have WMDs And Will Use Them! (Updated)Topics: Middle East News and Perspectives
Remember those WMD stockpiles of Saddam, the ones that he didn't have after the American invasion but have long been rumored to have ended up in Syria? And where are Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and other terrorist groups based? Interesting coincidence that the Aksa Martyrs' Brigades announced today that its members have succeeded in developing chemical and biological weapons to be used against Israel (via Captain's Quarters).
The Aksa Martyrs Brigades announced on Sunday that its members have succeeded in manufacturing chemical and biological weapons.As Captain's Quarters point out, if they're bluffing, they're making a very big mistake, if they're not bluffing, then they've just signed the death warrants of both Hamas and Fatah, and very likely, the Palestinian Authority. The IDF is not going to sit back and let Palestinian terrorists target Israel with WMDs - and if the Israelis can confirm the Palestinians have WMDs, the terrorists are going to be turned into chopped liver. (Did I really say that? How politically incorrect of me!)
In a leaflet distributed in the Gaza Strip, the group, which belongs to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah Party, said the weapons were the result of a three-year effort.
According to the statement, the first of its kind, the group has managed to manufacture and develop at least 20 different types of biological and chemical weapons.
And if the Palestinians in fact do have WMDs, you can safely bet your last dime that they got them from somewhere else, and that place is likely Syria, who got them from .....
Partisan Times has more commentary and additional updates/links...
James Joyner at Outside The Beltway is skeptical of the Palestinians having WMDs, but says either way, it's likely not going to turn out well for them.
