Bahar: Bush's visit might herald large-scale IOF invasion of Gaza
Bahar: Bush's visit might herald large-scale IOF invasion of Gaza
[ 10/01/2008 - 04:08 PM ]

GAZA, (PIC)-- Dr. Ahmed Bahar, the acting speaker of the PLC, on Thursday expressed fears that the current visit of American president George Bush to the region would be followed by a large-scale IOF invasion of the Gaza Strip.

Bahar said in a press release that following the Annapolis conference IOF murders and incursions increased in all Palestinian lands.

He said that the visit by the "criminal" Bush to the region was only meant to display absolute backing to the "oppressive entity (Israel)" and to blackmail PA leadership.

"We should not welcome the man who spread murder, destruction and occupation in Palestine, Iraq, Lebanon and Afghanistan and still promises more destruction in what is left of his term in office," Bahar elaborated.

He hoped that Bush would face an international trial as a "war criminal" along with Israeli premier Ehud Olmert, war minister Ehud Barak and foreign minister Tzipi Livni and other "killers and criminals".

The PLC acting speaker welcomed any American delegation supporting the Palestinian cause and people's rights. He expressed respect and appreciation to all Americans and American organizations that reject war and destruction pursued by the current American administration against peoples of the world especially the Arab and Islamic peoples.
