Turning a Peace Accord Into a Blood Libel

"The Palestinian Authority continues to incite, continues with its blood libels. The entire world saw Abu Mazen’s lies about how Israel allegedly killed that 13-year-old Palestinian boy terrorist. And yet, no one is pounding on the table saying to Abu Mazen ‘stop it.’ The Palestinians continue with their terrible incitement on TV and on social networks and in classrooms. Until that stops, until they cleanse their educational system and their media of this terrible anti-Semitic incitement against Israelis and Jews, nothing will happen."
"I would say that 'the Middle East is having some profound changes during the last years.' The entire region is shifting, and the nation states all collapse. It’s a tribal landscape now, and every bit of territory abandoned by the West is seized by radical Islam. So we really have no other choice than to continue and manage the conflict."
Ayalet Shaked, Israeli Minister of Justice

"When Israeli Arabs complain about Israel, I tell them, 'So move to Syria, go to Yemen…' And they can, but it’ll be worse for them there."
"When I watch TV and see a Palestinian youth — 13, 14 or 15 years old — holding a knife in his hand, running in the street and wanting to stab and kill, I think it’s the most barbaric thing I’ve ever seen. Will stabbing Jews solve my problems? Will killing a Jew solve my problems? Look at Hamas — in the past nine years they’ve been shooting rockets. What have we, as Palestinians, achieved? Let us be a little bit realistic."
"I [as a Palestinian] don’t want to be a victim anymore… I want to be considered as a human being who has full control of my own future and my children’s future."
"Let us [Palestinians] tell the world what we are really suffering from. [The press is] full of anti-semitism [and hatred], much more interested infighting against Israel [than knowing the truth]."
"[Palestinians are] fed up and hopeless [have lost trust in the Palestinian Authority]."

Mr. Eid, a Jerusalemite, states without equivocation that Palestinians are safest living in Israel than anywhere else in the Middle East. He, along with other courageous Palestinian journalists whose voices are drowned out by those of Fatah supporters, denounce the Palestinian Authority for its gross mismanagement of opportunities to make peace with  Israel. They deplore the fact that rather than denounce the terror attacks, Mahmoud Abbas encourages knifing of Israelis.

His libelous accusations against Israel, his incitements toward young Palestinians to do their duty in support of the Palestinian 'cause', creating the terrorist attacks of the past month are seen by them as one of the main causes of the current distemper in Israel. Mr. Abbas claims that Israel is guilty of "summary executions" of "innocent" Palestinian men and women, portraying them as simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time rather than identifying them as being caught while stabbing people to death.

Any responsible leader whose first concern is the well-being of his people would appeal to them to stop carrying out those murderous attacks. He has instead chosen along with the PLO and Fatah leaders to "voice appreciation for the heroic steadfastness" of the Palestinians "defending their holy sites and the national project". They have their president's word that if they attack Israeli military forces and die in the effort, Paradise will welcome them.

The chaos and bloodshed caused by knife attacks and vehicle run-overs, were blessed by the Palestinian Authority President. His role in inciting suggestible young people through enraging them with hatred against Jews has succeeded in driving a further wedge between the two isolated peoples. The official sanctions of violent attacks resulting in the death of innocent people is considered a victory for the Palestinian "cause".

What cause could ever exist that grows in strength and pride on the murder of others? Exhorted to grab a knife and stab Jews, young men and women do just that to "defend" their holy sites.

Terrorists? Those are the Jews living on Arab land, where they don't belong. Elderly Jewish women and young Jewish boys deserve to be stabbed, for they have no business living out their lives on Palestinian land, land that never existed other than for the worship of Islam. The lies of Jewish heritage and ancient lineage on the land are simply that.

Deserving of scorn and derision, for even Jesus was an Arab who died so that his brethren would one day dominate and secure the land in his memory and for the cause that they all espouse.

The innocent victims that Israel executes while portraying them as attackers whom Israeli police and soldiers have implicated in crimes by placing knives on their dead bodies, cry out to be heard. In defiance of the words of rejection as fiction and challenges to humanity that the Palestinian journalists who deplore the victimhood-hatred generated in the minds of young Palestinians by their leadership.
"I want to say to you, Chairman Arafat, the leader of the Palestinians: together, we should not let the land flowing with milk and honey become a land flowing with blood and tears. Don't let it happen. If all the partners to the peacemaking do not unite against the evil angels of death by terrorism, all that will remain of this ceremony are colour snapshots empty mementos. Rivers of hatred will overflow again and swamp the Middle East."
"We, gentlemen, will not permit terrorism to defeat peace. We will not allow it. If we do not have partners in this bitter, difficult war, we will fight it alone. We know how to fight and we know how to win."
Yitzhak Rabin, then Prime Minister of Israel, Oslo 1995 Mideast Peace Accords
