PA official: Israel trying to create 'chaos' in Palestinian territory

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli authorities have been trying to create a state of chaos in the Palestinian territories by claiming that the increasing number of attacks recently indicates that a "Third Intifada" is underway, a Palestinian security official said on Monday.

Adnan Dmeiri, a spokesperson for all Palestinian security services, told Ma'an that the Israelis are trying to create "guided violence" in the region while "trying by all means to evade their political duties."

"They are using confrontations with the Palestinians as a pretext to quit negotiations and to solve their political and factional disputes," he explained.

"The Israelis are interested in creating chaos while they continue to murder Palestinians as they did in Qalqiliya and Jenin, and to protect settlers who assault Palestinian citizens," he added, referring to two incidents last week where Israeli forces shot Palestinians dead during raids in the West Bank.

"Nevertheless, the Palestinians are wise enough to distinguish between resistance against occupation and destructive chaos," he said.

Dmeiri highlighted that the Israeli occupation took advantage of the state of chaos between the years 2000 and 2002 at the beginning of the First Intifada to destroy offices of Palestinian security services.

The comments come after chairman of Israel's Kadima party Shaul Mofaz told Israeli radio that the explosion in Israeli bus in Bat Yam near Tel Aviv Sunday was "an introduction to a new wave of escalation and a new Intifada."

Similarly, a former commander of Israel's Central Command told right-wing Israeli news site Arutz Sheva that "Hamas is trying to ignite an Intifada in the West Bank to thwart the ongoing peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians."

"Security chaos," Adnan Dmeiri said, "means that the PA loses control on the ground, and this is completely different from incidents carried out individually which happen in any country in the world."

Security services, he added, are still investigating a shooting near Bethlehem that killed a Palestinian police officer two weeks ago, as well as a shooting directed against PA minister of endowment Mahmoud al-Habbash.

He asserted that Palestinian security would eventually reach the fugitives in their hideouts.

The Palestinian security forces are the paramilitary force of the Palestinian National Authority.

Misery amongst Arabs is never, never their fault. Israel must survive in order to provide a convenient excuse.

"PA official: Israel trying to create 'chaos' in Palestinian territory" What is the PA going to do against this?

If PA officials spent as much time and effort on peace negotiations with as they do on pronouncements, peace would long since have been achieved.

But who planted the bomb on the bus? It would not be the first - or the last - time that Israeli undercover agents have planted bombs to frighten Jews and make it seem they are under attack. Look at what happened in Iraq.

Using the old technique of "divide to conquer"

That's right, John, #4, not the first nor the last time that Israeli undercover agents have planted bombs to frighten Jews. Can you provide the records of when and where this has occurred on so many occasions because I can't though I'm sure, no, positive, it has happened but just can't get at the records/research. Well, you know, these zionists are capable of anything no matter how low so providing proof is really an unnecessary step. Whatever one imagines in terms of evil must be zionist.
