Doha Al-Jazirah Satellite Channel Television in Arabic -- Independent Television station financed by the Qatari Government -- at 1835 GMT on 14 June carries a new live episode of the "Open Dialogue" talk show, moderated by anchorman Ghassan Bin-Jiddu, who hosts Dr. Abd-al-Aziz al-Rantisi, a HAMAS leader in Gaza; PA Minister of Information Nabil Amr in Ramallah; a crowd of Palestinian refugees in the Mar Ilyas refugee camp in Lebanon; and another crowd of Palestinians in Gaza. .
Paragraph-2 Contains
At 1915 GMT, PA Information Minister Nabil Amr joins the discussion via satellite from Ramallah.
Paragraph-3 Contains
. Asked about Mahmud Abbas´ speech in the Al-Aqabah summit, Amr says: "As regards the word terrorism, I do not know why when the Palestinians denounce the word terrorism, certain people think that this means resistance. There is no text anywhere that says that the Palestinian people´s resistance is terrorism, which we denounce. President Yasir Arafat said this in Geneva 15 years ago. This is part of our policy. Yes, we denounce terrorism. Anyone who says that denouncing terrorism means denouncing resistance is doing an injustice to legitimate resistance and is in effect labeling it with terrorism. Therefore, the statement that was read in Al-Aqabah is based on a commitment that the PLO made in Geneva, after which the Palestinian-US dialogue started in Tunis." . . . The episode concludes at 1957 GMT.
