Palestinian Incitement/Conspiracies Continue – Blame Israel For Paris Massacre
By Kade Hawkins
It should come as no surprise that Palestinian groups that formerly blamed the Jews for the attacks of 9/11 and the Charlie Hebdo attacks earlier this year in France are now suggesting Israel is also responsible for the Paris massacre.
The official PA daily al-Hayat al-Jadida published an op-ed blaming Israel’s Mossad intelligence service, and its “octopus arms,” for the six coordinated attacks in Paris that killed at least 129 people and injured over 352.
The story suggests that it’s no coincidence that “human blood was exploded in Paris” at the same time that “certain European sanctions” are being implemented.” Referring to the European Union’s decision to approve guidelines that require member states to stop carrying the “Made in Israel” label for products made in the “occupied territories”
The PA government is attempting falsely to compare Israel’s actions of self-defense against terrorism as, ironically, terrorism itself. The PA’s twitter account tweeted the following, “Terror is terror and we condemn all terror. Be it destroying houses in Nablus and killing our children by Israel or hitting a Russian plane over Egypt. The Paris attacks are criminal acts done by coward terrorists.”
The daily also compared Israel to ISIS by publishing a cartoon showing an Israeli decapitating the Al-Aqsa Mosque alongside an ISIS terrorist beheading a hostage.
According to the Algemeiner Journal, Palestinian National Council member Bassam Abu Sharif also blamed Israel for the attacks in Paris. He criticized US and Western leaders for not taking a stand against Israel and the “Zionists,” and implied that the West had a hand in the attacks, because it has “used terror organizations before” to carry out Israel’s and their own “schemes” in the Middle East.
This conspiracy rhetoric comes on the heels of more terror attacks in Israel which saw a Rabbi and his son murdered while on their way to a wedding celebration on Friday. A Red Crescent ambulance passed by the site of the deadly terrorist attack and ignored the victims as they lay dying. The Israeli government will be launching an international campaign against the organization, which in principle does not treat Jews – despite being bound to treat all casualties regardless off their identity. Netanyahu noted that “no such thing” had ever occurred with Israeli emergency services “who provide aid without distinction to Jews, to Arabs, to everyone.”
While Israelis may not currently be experiencing mass casualty attacks like France they have endured weeks of constant attacks which have seen many Israeli’s lose their lives and their entire population set on edge.
Despite the PA’s attempts to convince people it is on the side of those fighting terror, the wave of incitement by Palestinians on social media and by Government representatives continues unabated.
A few recent examples:
Songs about stabbing Jews to death — including one by the winner of the Arab equivalent of “American Idol” — are all the rage on West Bank airwaves, a year after the twisted hit parade featured calls for running down Israelis with cars.
A store in Gaza named “Hitler” has armed its display mannequins with knives. (All Pro-Palestinian supporters should take note. You are supporting neo-Nazis)
The Palestinian Authority’s UN representative claimed Israel is harvesting the organs of dead Palestinians.
Both the PA and Fatah continue to encourage rock-throwing against Israelis. Recent cartoons in the official PA daily states that the rock is the “best friend ever” of Palestinians.
Palestinian terrorist Muhannad Halabi, who murdered two Israelis and wounded two others last month, had a football (soccer) tournament named after him by the Yasser Arafat Youth Center in Jenin. Deemed a martyr for his murder of Israeli civilians, the 19-year-old Halabi has also been honored in other ways, including the Palestinian Authority (PA) naming street after him, Abbas’s Fatah movement bringing soil from the Al-Asqa mosque to Halabi’s grave (so he could “hug the soil for which he died”), and the PA Bar Association awarding him an honorary law degree.
It’s no wonder a full 369 members of the House of Representatives issued a stern letter to Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas demanding that he stop inciting terrorism.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday called on world leaders to show the same level of indignation over terror against Israelis as they do over terror attacks around the world.
“The time has come for countries to condemn terrorism against us to the same degree that they condemn terrorism everywhere else in the world,” Netanyahu said. “It would be proper for Abu Mazen [Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas], who condemned the attack in France yesterday, to condemn ruthless terrorism against innocent people in Israel and fight the incitement that motivates it.”
