The Palestinian Authority has added a new definition to its revised dictionary, and “red line” now refers to “borders drawn in blood.”
While Israeli and Palestinian Authority negotiators are staging direct talks over a future PA state and under the thumb and eyes of the Obama administration, the Fatah movement that Abbas heads stated on Facebook last month, “My homeland taught me that it is the blood of Martyrs (Shahids) that draws the borders of the homeland.” So much for the Green Line.
The Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), which translated and posted the latest incitement, noted that there is an accompanying picture of a terrorist – or maybe he is a “militant” or just an ordinary Arab man on the street – holding a rifle.
Nothing really has changed since the days of Yasser Arafat prancing around with a holster on his hip. Abbas wears a suit and tie and lets his political movement’s Facebook page talk “peace” in its own unique fashion.
The new definition of “red lines” follows other newly-defined terms in the Palestinian Authority dictionary.
“Peace Process” years ago became the term for “piece process,” whereby Israel loses peace piece by piece.
“Negotiations” means accepting all Palestinian Authority demands without compromise.
“Right of Return” means giving Arabs who never have lived in Israel the freedom to “return” where they never were.
This is based on the United Nations’ two-headed definition of “refugee,” a status that throughout the world applies to those who flee or are expelled from a country – except for Arabs who lived in Israel decades ago. The United Nations redefined” refugees” for them so that it includes their children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great great-grandchildren ad nauseum
Another interesting term in the Palestinian Authority dictionary is “democracy.” That now means a PA chairman –Abbas – who nine years was elected for four years but who continues in power without a free vote.
Another facet of the Palestinian Authority’s newly defined democracy is that Arabs can live wherever they want in Israel, which it refuses to define as a Jewish state, but Jews cannot live anywhere in a future PA country.
