    PA Communications Minister Imad Faluji addressing a rally at the Ein Hilwe refugee camp in South Lebanon, stated that the new intifada had been in the planning for months. Palestinian leader Marwan Barghouti told an interviewer that: The explosion would have happened anyway. It was necessary in order to protect Palestinian rights. But Sharon provided a good excuse.
