Hamas Official: Arafat Gave Us Arms for Second Intifada Attacks – Elhanan Miller
(dailyalert.org, Dec. 17, 2014)

Mahmoud al-Zahar, a co-founder of Hamas and its former foreign minister, told Al-Aqsa TV on Sunday that Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat allowed Hamas to carry out terror attacks against Israel following the failure of the Camp David peace talks in July 2000, and transferred weapons to the Islamic terror group.

Al-Zahar’s comments give further credence to the claim that the Second Intifada – which began in September 2000 – was less a spontaneous Palestinian uprising than a premeditated top-down effort by Arafat. Many Israeli officials have argued that Arafat instigated the Second Intifada. (Times of Israel)
