Sharon’s reasoning should start to look a little clearer:
The Palestinians intend to oppose any move by Israel to have the UN Security Council declare its 38-year occupation of the Gaza Strip over following the withdrawal of all Jewish settlers.
Foreign minister Nasser al-Qidwa said Israel’s continued control of Gaza’s air space and territorial waters meant any such move would be premature and should await a comprehensive peace agreement.
“The international community must maintain the Palestinian territories’ current legal status after the unilateral Israeli withdrawal,” said Qidwa, who travelled to Moscow this week to put his case to one of the five permanent members with veto powers on the Security Council.
See, their brave martyrs drove the occupying zionists from their lands, but they’re still occupied.
