Abu Mazen: The Whole Intifada Was a Mistake (MEMRI)

Former PA Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) told the Jordanian daily Al-Rai on 27 Sep 04:

“I think now that that the intifada in its entirety was a mistake and it should not have continued, and in particular what is called ‘the militarization of the intifada.'”

It was thought “that after the killing of 1,000 Israelis in the intifada, Israel would collapse, as would Sharon….[But] Sharon did not fall. On the contrary, he has become the most popular [leader] in the history of Israel…[and] we damaged our relations with the Americans and with Israeli public opinion.”
