Notable Quotes:
"Hamas has violated all the laws and regulations. It is using the logic of domination and is trying to stage a coup against Abbas."
-Central Chronicle, March 2006
"The Koran and the Sharia mention the referendum and shura [consultation of the people in the management of religious and worldly affairs]. President Abbas's decision to hold a referendum islegal and is aimed at strengthening the status of the people."
-- Associated Press, June 12, 2006
"The Palestinians have the right to exchange the soldier for their prisoners… This is an act of self-defense…Why are we reluctant to talk openly about the need for a prisoner swap? Does the soldier have a mother while our prisoners don't? Is his mother the only one crying? What about
our mothers, aren't they also crying for their beloved ones?"
--The Jerusalem Post, July 3, 2006
