MUSLIM GUERRILLAS SAY ATTACKS ON ISRAELIS WILL CONTINUE

THE MADRID PEACE TALKS

Jordan's fundamentalist Muslim Brotherhood movement said yesterday that attacks on Israelis would never stop even if a Middle East peace deal were to be struck in Madrid.Muslim fundamentalist guerrillas killed three Israeli soldiers and wounded six others in two ambushes in south Lebanon Tuesday aimed at thwarting the unprecedented Arab-Israeli conference. Two Arab gunmen also died. The pro-Iranian Hizbullah (Party of God) claimed responsibility for the attacks. "We believe these [attacks] are the natural response of the Arab and Muslim nations and we believe this will not halt even if agreements are reached," said Deputy Ahmed al-Azaideh, spokesman for the 22-member Brotherhood bloc in Jordan's parliament. "The Muslim umma [nation] will continue to reject the Zionist presence and will continue to resist it even if diplomatic ties are established [between Israel and Arabs]." The Brotherhood, the single largest bloc in parliament, like many other Muslim political movements, opposes peace talks with Israel and advocates Islamic jihad (holy war) as the only way to liberate all of Palestine, including Israel.
