Following are excerpts from an interview with Daoud Shihab, spokesman for the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, which aired on Mayadeen TV on July 23, 2014:
Daoud Shihab: The Israeli war against the Palestinians is nothing new. This is merely a link in a long chain of wars and aggressions that have been going on even before 1948. The Palestinian people has been subjected to slaughter and massacres. What makes this war special is the legendary Palestinian heroism and steadfastness, which is unprecedented in the history of this struggle. This could be what makes this war special.
Israel is targeting the Palestinians… I would just like to remind you of the ruling by the Israeli rabbis, who have instructed the soldiers to knead the [dough for] the bread that the Jews eat with the blood of Arab and Palestinian children.
