Following are excerpts from a speech by Abu Adham Abu Hilal, spokesman for Fatah's Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades. Al-Jazeera TV aired this speech on November 17, 2005.
Abu Adham Abu Hilal: If our sacrifice and our resistance to the occupation are considered to be terrorism by the US, Israel, and some of their collaborators, then we are the leading terrorists on this planet. If our resistance constitutes terrorism, then terrorists we are.
All the brigades of the Jihad and the resistance will remain in the homeland in of spite all the enemies, with their weapons in their hand. We repeat: We will chop off any hand that tries (to collect) the weapons of the resistance - whoever the hand belongs to - and we will chop off any tongue that speaks with insolence about the plans of the resistance. (The resistance) will continue to be a deeply rooted and strategic right of our struggling people. And we will chop off the head... And we will cut off any head that even thinks about collecting the weapons of the resistance.
