Palestinian TV broadcasts a speech given by a Fatah leader in which he discusses how ‘throwing a grenade’ is like ‘building a school’. He equates violent activity with construction of an educational facility insisting that both are for the ‘victory’ of his cause.
Deputy Secretary of the Fatah Central Committee and former PA senior official, Jibril Rajoub:
“Building a school and throwing a hand grenade, in my opinion, are resistance. I build the school in order to strengthen the reasons for my people’s resolve, as one of several aspects of the resistance, and when there is a need to throw a grenade [or launch] a rocket, I’ll do that as well out of my belief in the inevitable victory of my cause and its justness.”
In Nederland is Likoed geen politieke partij maar een vereniging.
Voorlopers van Likoed Nederland maakten sinds 1930 onderdeel uit van de Nederlandse Zionistenbond. Die is in 1899 opgericht om het zionisme in Nederland te bevorderen. In 1992 is die omgevormd naar de Federatie Nederlandse Zionisten en is Likoed Nederland een zelfstandige vereniging geworden.
