Jenin


From AFP, via Little Green Footballs:



RAMALLAH, West Bank (AFP) - Followers of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades have ordered international observers overseeing this month’s Palestinian election to leave the Jenin area of the northern West Bank.

“We are sorry to tell you that you must leave Jenin as soon as possible,” said a statement Saturday from the Jenin branch of the Brigades received by AFP.

“We ask you to understand that this step is not against you. It is against the occupation and against the international community which has done nothing to stop the Israeli army’s escalations against our people.”


Is there any logic in that statement? Any at all?
