PLO's Fatah threatens attacks on America

From the Counterterrorism Blog:
In a credible communique posted this morning along with other mujahideen press releases, the Palestinian Fatah faction and its affiliate the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade have signed a joint statement with other Palestinian militants threatening to launch terrorist attacks on America in response to the mistaken killing of 20 Palestinians in Beit Hanoun earlier this week by the Israeli army. According to the statement, "America's support for the [Israeli] aggression prompted us to seriously consider it as a legitimate target for us... The American people are responsible for the consequences of their continued support for Israel." Referring to Americans as "Cowboys", the statement went on to denounce "powerful and merciless American strikes on Palestine, Iraq and Afghanistan" and the "fraud" of the United Nations Security Council "which protects and safeguards the security of the Zionists at the expense of the blood of the Palestinians." Finally, the joint statement concluded: "Enough is enough... the Americans only understand the language of blood and broken bones."
This is one of their ways of attempting to make Israel the scapegoat for acting in justice. But they're also doing it because the US vetoed the UN's umpteenth desire to condemn Israel for combatting crime. From Little Green Footballs (via FPM's war blog), here's an article from the AFP, that is unsurprisingly one-sided:
GAZA CITY (AFP) - The Palestinian government has denounced the US veto of a UN Security Council resolution condemning an Israeli artillery barrage that killed 19 people in the Gaza Strip Wednesday.

“This decision by the American administration clearly means the granting of absolute legitimacy to the massacre and slaughter committed by the occupation forces against the Palestinian people,” Ghazi Hamad, the spokesman for the Hamas-led government, said in a statement Sunday.

“This decision means granting the occupation government continuing protection and cover with no limit for its crimes that they commit against innocent civilians in Palestine.”

Palestinian militants, meanwhile, vowed to deal with the US as an enemy after the veto.
Now isn't this another reason why the US shouldn't be funding them anymore?
