The Twisted Logic of Mohammed Daod

The beginning of the article (Reuters: "Munich mastermind spurns Spielberg's peace appeal") as a contextualizer:

Mohammed Daoud planned the Munich attack on behalf of PLO splinter group Black September, but did not take part and does not feature in the film.

He voiced outrage at not being consulted for the thriller and accused Spielberg of pandering to the Jewish state.

Now Daoud's wonderfully contradictory explanation for the Black September terrorist action political statement:
"We did not target Israeli civilians," he said.

"Some of them (the athletes) had taken part in wars and killed many Palestinians. Whether a pianist or an athlete, any Israeli is a soldier."

Um...anyone else catch the subtlety here?
