A senior official in the Islamic Jihad movement said the FBI‚Äôs decision to include the movement‚Äôs Secretary-General Ramadan Shalah‚Äôs name on its most wanted list ‚Äúwill not change the movement‚Äôs policy‚ÄĚ.
A member of the movement‚Äôs political bureau, Nafez Azzam, told Quds Press that his movement will continue its path in defending the Palestinian people‚Äôs rights.
‚ÄúThe FBI‚Äôs decision to include Shalah‚Äôs name on their list did not surprise us,‚ÄĚ he said, adding that the United States ‚Äúis completely biased against the Palestinian people and lacks ethics and objectivity.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúThe decision is a stark proof of the US‚Äô double standards which turn a blind eye to tyrants and crimes committed by Israel,‚ÄĚ he added.
The US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) released a list of 29 individuals from around the world whom it said are wanted for their involvement in operations that killed US citizens, Israeli daily Yedioth Ahronoth reported yesterday.
The FBI list included three others Palestinians: Abdel Aziz Odeh, 67 who lives in the Gaza Strip, freed Palestinian prisoner, Ahlam Al-Tamimi, 37, and Hussein Al-Amri, 71, an Afghan national born in the city of Jaffa in 1948.
