"Are you aware that that is the position of the Palestinian Authority?" Yes, I am. All terrorists that murder Israeli citizens are labeled "heroes" and "martyrs". The PA pays the families of suicide bombers and terrorists. A few years ago, when some Palestinian Christians petitioned to run own tv station to disassociate themselves from the hate tv regualarly demonstrated by the Palestinian media and clerics, they were refused. Arafat rejected numerous commerce opportunities with the Palestinian areas which would have built up a business infrastructure and prepared the Palestinians for their own state. Who can forget Arafat waving his arms up in the air, impassioned with hatred, shouting jihad! Jihad! Jihad! Jihad! Jihad! Jihad! Jihad! Etc. So vile!! Never has the PA prepared themselves or their people for peace or their own state.
