The following are excerpts from an interview with Lebanese MP Zaher Al-Khatib:

Interviewer: How do you see the future of the settlement process and the Palestinian-Israeli conflict?

Al-Khatib: Rosy - like blood. When I say rosy I mean the flowers will sprout from the Palestinian people's blood.

Interviewer: The Intifada will continue?

Al-Khatib: Of course.

Interviewer: And it will grow stronger?

Al-Khatib: It will escalate and develop technologically. The martyrdom operations are no longer the only kind of operations in Palestine. The martyrdom operations have become a strategy. A strategy doesn't mean that we carry out these operations whenever possible; it means (real) military operations... There is an infrastructure of resistance that wages battles, enters Ashdod, crosses borders, penetrates military zones, conducts operations as in Ashdod, and so on.
