  • Description

    1.
    CU Mayor of Halhoul, Muhammed Hassan Milhem, speaking in English.
    1.14


    MILHEM: "It's the Israeli authorities, because they give the backing. And as for the Gush Emunim, where do they gain their support? They are a bunch of extremists. They say it, and they do it, but where do they get their support, machine guns and all their backing? They get it from the Israeli Government. This is the Israeli policy, to scare the people, to demolish their houses, and to force them to flee from them."



    DARBY: "What will happen now?"



    MILHEM: "Now? Well, I think the situation is deteriorating. And the people in the occupied territories and outside have no choice but to resist and spare no means to struggle for their rights, and I hope that all public opinion, the Europeans, the Americans, East and West, will come to understand us and do something before it is too late."



    DARBY: "Do you expect there will be more bomb attacks of this sort on you colleagues?"



    MILHEM: "I don't rule that out...I don't rule that out. This is an escalation that will never stop unless the demands of the Palestinians are met, or some kind of catastrophe happens, and I hope that they won't."
