The Moderate Palestinian Authority/Mahmoud Abbas

"We have documented how he and his leadership have continually called for violence and turned killers into heroes – all the while professing Palestinian victimhood. His role in perpetrating the slaughter of innocent people is no different from that of dispatchers on the ground, who physically supply terrorists with weapons and drive them to the scenes of their crimes."
"[Mahmoud Abbas] should be imprisoned for murder."

The October 3 murder of Rabbi Nehemiah Lavi and Aharon Bennett, that took place in the Old City of Jerusalem, serves as an illustration where stabbing attacks are encouraged and glorified by the Palestinian Authority. The perpetrator of the attack, Muhannad Halabi was urged by Arab passers-by and local shopkeepers to attack anyone he could identify as a Jew. After the attack, when the wife of Mr. Bennett pleaded for help as she stumbled about, a knife stuck in her back, she was mocked by those same passers-by and shopkeepers.

Muhannad Halabi was shot dead by Israeli security forces, as he continued his lethal rampage. But the Palestinian Authority saw to it that he had his martyrdom reward. His posthumous award was to be honoured by having a street named after him. The Palestinian Law Society granted him an honourary law degree, as a law student who hadn't completed his studies, and "holy soil" from the area of the Al-Aqsa Mosque was provided for the burial site of the "heroic martyr".

Richard Lakin, 76, a former American school principal who was shot in the head and stabbed in the chest during the terrorist attack that occurred two weeks ago, underwent several surgeries that saw his condition temporarily stabilized. Doctors pronounced him dead, however, on Monday, the third victim of the attack to die of his wounds. This man, formerly a resident of Connecticut, arrived in Israel with his family 32 years ago. The family settled in Jerusalem, where they opened a business to teach English.

Among their varied and many students were area Palestinian children. He remained a teacher to the end of his life. He was also a writer, authoring two books, one of which was titled "Teaching as an Act of Love". That love was not reciprocated by all, needless to say. A year ago, a Canadian-Israeli rabbi was horribly wounded in a terrorist attack in Jerusalem while he was praying at the Kehilat Bnei Torah synagogue.

The synagogue was full of worshippers early on the morning of November 18, 2014. Two Palestinian terrorists stormed into the building with guns, knives and meat cleavers to attack those immersed in prayer. Four men were killed outright, along with an off-duty Israeli Druze policeman. Seven additional men had been injured, and Rabbi Howie (Chaim) Rothman was the most seriously wounded among them.

The 55-year-old man was kept in a medically induced coma. He had been struck with a meat cleaver to the right side of his head, causing him to lose an eye. "He had an arm severed and they had to re-attach that", his brother explained at his funeral. "But the thing that really did the damage to him was the brain damage, the hits to his head". The attackers were two men from East Jerusalem, related to one another as cousins. The multiple surgeries that Rabbi Rothman underwent on his brain, eyes and arm failed to sustain his life.

He was maintained in long-term care hospitals in Jerusalem but recently he developed pneumonia, placed on a respirator where his blood pressure plummeted, and he died.

This is the savagery carried out by Palestinian 'resisters'. They 'resist' the 'occupation', put into effect as a protective device by Israeli authorities tasked to protect their citizens. The Palestinian Authority exhorts its population to exert themselves on behalf of the Palestinian dream the PA keeps alive, of a vanished Israel, leaving the Palestinians free to claim the entire geography they have so long been unwilling to share with Jews, starting with the United Nations' partition plan and extending to all offers since then by Israel to satisfy the demands of the Palestinians without causing the demise of Israel.
