The following are excerpts from an interview with Fatah leader Faruq Qaddumi:
Faruq Qaddumi: Our brother Nabil Shaath is not a minister for foreign affairs. The PA does not have [international] recognition and so it does have "foreign affairs." Therefore, he doesn't speak on behalf of the Palestinian revolution, the resistance, or the PLO. He is not a member of the Executive Committee. We just called him "minister" in violation [of the Oslo Accord].
That's why this man should shut up, because he is not representing [anyone]. Unfortunately, he doesn't know everything.
