Jordan envoy: Palestinians are resistance fighters

Jordanian MP, Wafa Bani Mustafa []

Palestinians held by Israeli occupation forces in detention centres are resistance fighters who are defending their children and their land and are not terrorists, a Jordanian MP told the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) conference in Russia yesterday.

Wafa Bani Mustafa said:

These honourable Palestinians are defending their country and their children and are using the simplest means against the occupying state, which uses all means of force and oppression against them.

Mustafa was speaking at the 137th session of the international organisation in St Petersburg during discussions on a report on human rights.

“I am not being emotional,” she added, “These are not my words but the words of international humanitarian law which says that the Palestinians are the last people who are suffering under occupation.”

“I hope dust will stop being thrown into people’s eyes, because the truth is clear to all who are honourable.”

During the same session, the Speaker of Kuwait’s National Assembly Marzouq Al-Ghanim called on the Israeli delegation to “get out”, adding that he “represents the most dangerous form of terrorism; state terrorism”.

    Did they resist when Jordan illegally annexed Judea and Samaria?

    • Lion Heart

      Does Jordan demolish homes of Palestinians on regular basis?
      Israel demolished homes in Al Aqrib 116 times….a world record of home demolition
      Even Hitler was more humane, Hitler did not demolish Jewish homes at least not 116 times.

    “Resistance fighters” target the Military and the Government. “Palestinians” target CIVILIANS and ate therefore not “Resistance fighters” but terrorists

    • Lion Heart

      Very correct. I agree that those who target civilians should be called as terrorists.

      Now I will call upon all Jews to call their following “heros” as “terrorists”:

      1. Menachem Begin

      2. Yitzhak Shamir

      3. Eitan Livni

      Now please also repeat with me “I condemn brutal murder of CIVILIANS Wilhelm Gustloff and Earnst Vom Roth by Jewish terrorists David Frankfurter and Herschel Grynszpan respectively”

      • charliematerne

        Show me how, starting with with Abbas, Arafat and Bargouti

      The white man simply is clinging to stolen land due to greed because he could very easy return back home to Lithuania Hungary, Germany and so on, can’t he?
