How Abbas Views Terrorist Murder

We have never understood how Abbas continues to be called 'moderate.'

The tragic death of Evyatar Borowski, an Israeli father of five young children, murdered yesterday by a knife-wielding Palestinian Arab at a hitch-hiking post at Tapuah Junction in the Shomron, attracted media attention in the Arab world.

Fatah party representatives praised as a hero a Palestinian attacker who stabbed an Israeli to death at a West Bank junction on Tuesday. The organization posted pictures from the scene of the attack on its official Facebook page, accompanying each image with a caption boasting of the stabber’s “success.” Officials also expressed hope that he would be quickly released from prison. [Times of Israel]

The Los Angeles Times went a step further, connecting the head of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, to the killing. It reminds readers that credit for the terror attack was claimed by the notorious Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades which styles itself as “the military wing” of the Fatah Party whose head is Mahmoud Abbas. Al Aqsa’s post-stabbing announcement takes proud responsibility

…calling it revenge for Israel’s treatment of Palestinian prisoners, including two who recently died while in custody. The group called the killing a “gift” to Palestinian prisoners and promised more operations in the future. Abbas, who has repeatedly condemned the use of violence and vowed to prevent another uprising as long as he is in power, did not immediately comment on the attack… [LA Times]

We have never understood – and still don’t – how Abbas continues to be called ‘moderate’ in many of the news reports about events in this neighborhood. He is the leader of a violent terrorist undertaking, encourages terror, praises terrorists while sanctimoniously almost-condemning it, and yet continues to be received in world capitals as if he were a regular political leader.

The Facebook page of Fatah, which he heads, carries a heroic portrait today of the stabber, Salaam (“peace”) Zaghal, an AK-47 rifle positioned beneath his head. The caption addresses the killer with these words:

“Peace be with you the day of your birth, on the day of your imprisonment and on the day of your freedom…” [source]

Zaghal served a three-year prison term for offences involving the hurling of stones and of firebombs (“Molotov cocktails”) and other criminal offenses, and was released from his Israeli cell just a month ago. It’s reported in the Israeli media that the murder he carried out yesterday was a kind of family-honour act, coming just a day after his brother was put before a Palestinian Authority court on charges of collaborating with Israel.

Moral contortions of that kind are unfortunately a big part of today’s Palestinian Arab social mores. In that sense, Abbas is a well-chosen and highly appropriate figurehead.

    As I have been saying for years, the Liberals and Islamists are the same ideology, a continuation of the Nazi and Mufti of Jerusalem collaborating to exterminate the JudeoChristian world view. Someday soon, G-d forbid, the liberal Jews will be in shock when Homeland Security comes for them just as the German Jews were on Kristallnacht.

    Golda Meir 50 years ago talked about Palestinian child abuse by Pal leaders. Sadly nothing has changed.

    But the truth is that Israeli-Palestinian peace will never be made until Palestinian leaders do two things: stop teaching their children that killing Israelis is life’s greatest glory, and start providing their people with a decent life instead.

    It’s no wonder that, according to a new Pew poll, Palestinians are the biggest supporters of suicide bombings against civilians in the Islamic world.

    The Palestinians are known for supporting murder, so their's no possibility of peace with these racist Arabs. Its worth noting 85 percent of Palestinians supported the close up shooting execution murders of 7 Israeli boys in the Mercaz Harav Yeshiva massacre in 08 in Jerusalem. And that 75 percent of Palestinians supported the Palestinian Homicide bombing of the Maxim restaurant in Haifa back in 2003, which murdered 21 civilians, including 2 families and left an 8 year old child blinded and orphaned and that in similar polls they supported mass murder against Israeli civilians.

    Arab Lawyers Union Honors Terrorist who Killed 21 Israelis in Haifa
    October 18, 2012

    The Palestine Committee of the Arab Lawyers Union recently bestowed its “highest honor” on female suicide bomber Hanadi Jaradat, who killed 21 Israelis in a 2003 attack on Maxim’s restaurant in Haifa, Palestinian Media Watch reported on its website here.

    Jaradat, who worked as a lawyer, also injured 51 Israelis in her bombing of Maxim’s. The lawyers union “created the ‘Martyr Hanadi Jaradat plaque of honor’” for her, according to an Oct 14 report in the Palestinian daily publication Al-Ayyam.

    A delegation “conveyed to the family of Martyr Jaradat the good wishes of the head of the Union, Mr. Omar Al-Zayn… and also emphasized the pride of the Arab Lawyers Union for what their daughter had done in defense of Palestine and the nation.”
