US Condones Israeli Masssacre of Palestinians---Again
Palestinians angry at U.S. veto of U.N. resolution condemning Israel - iht,africa,Palestinians US - Africa & Middle East - International Herald Tribune:
'The Palestinian government strongly condemns the American veto. This decision by the U.S. government gives unlimited cover to commit more massacres of innocent Palestinians,' said Ghazi Hamad, a spokesman for the Hamas-led government. 'This is a shame on the American administration, which says it is trying to promote human rights and democracy in the Middle East.'
The Popular Resistance Committees, a Hamas-linked militant group, made vague threats of violence against America, accusing it of backing the killings on Wednesday.
'The Zionist aggression on Beit Hanoun was supported by American officers who were supervising the killing of our children, women and elderly,' said PRC spokesman Abu Mujahed. 'Therefore America and the Zionist entity are two faces of the same cause and they are going to be treated the same way, as the occupiers of our land. And they have to be held responsible for the consequences of this.'
