Abbas Rakes Obama over the Coals for Plan to Attack Syria

The closer the Palestinian Authority gets to become a country, the more it spits in the face of those who feed it. Abbas says Obama should stay out of Syria; PA media blame Obama for the civil war and 9/11.

The Palestinian Authority has a unique way of spitting in the face of those who feed it. Abbas says Obama should stay out of Syria; PA media blame Obama for the civil war. “The US also was behind 9/11.”

“We don’t accept for any Arabic country to be attacked and we condemn the use of chemical weapons by any group. The solution to the Syrian crisis must be political and there is no military solution,” Abbas said in speech to Fatah’s revolutionary council this weekend.

The closer Abbas succeeds to win all of his demands and conditions for creating the Palestinian Authority as an independent country, the more he betrays those who have kept in power, mainly the Obama administration.

Abbas has performed brilliantly to drum up worldwide support for his demands by building on nearly universal anti-Israel propaganda.

But one would think he has enough sense to keep his mouth shut and not pretend he is the president of Russia or China when the President of the United States says he wants to put a stop the war crimes in Syria. Abbas even said that his officials have drafted a paper to international bodies on how to end the civil war in Syria.

It does not take much imagination to figure that the first thing is for Israel to surrender the strategic Golan Heights.

Fortunately for Israel, Abbas does not have much commons sense when it comes to issue outside of his single-minded goal of creating a PA state inside Israel’s current borders.

And Palestinian Authority media have followed up with anti-American vile that is on par with that of the propaganda machine in Syria and Iran.

While Abbas was saying, in Arabic of course,  “We are against the attack on Syria and this is our position and policy, the Palestinian Media Watch was busy translating and posting reports  in PA media on Sunday, including its official newspaper.

Some choice headlines are:

  • US behind civil war in Syria and supports the killings
  • US seeks massacre of Syrian civilians
  • America uses “killing as a strategy to attain global domination”
  • “Assad was destroying Syria, and this is what they [US] had hoped for”
  • America attempting to divide and destroy Syria, as it destroyed Iraq
  • US policy is to help radical Muslims take over the Arab World
  • PA daily op-ed: America was behind the 9/11 attacks

Perhaps the most insulting statement was that of a PA legislator who had the gall to state, “Peace talks are intended to hide Israel’s involvement in attack on Syria.”

What is even more amazing is that the  U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and President Obama act out the “battered wife syndrome.” The more Abbas sticks his finger in America’s eye, the more Washington sees exactly what Abbas wants it to see.

One PA daily pronounced, according to PMW,  “Events of mass killings do not upset [America] because they themselves have used killing as a means and a strategy to attain global domination”

“The Americans knew that Assad was destroying Syria and this is what they had hoped for, so they worked to have the massacres and destruction continue,” stated another article.

Another article blames the United States and Israel for carrying out a policy “to re-divide the Arab people’s nations according to ethnic groups, religion and ethnicity.”

One Palestinian Authority daily, less than two weeks before the 12th anniversary of the Al Qaeda attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, ran an article that is a copycat of the one of the most vicious anti-American theories around.

“‘History is a great lie written by the victors’ – said Napoleon Bonaparte,” wrote columnist Hassan Ouda Abu Zaher.

“If so, is the history planted in us through TV and the standard educational curriculum indeed true? The source of this history is the West – the victor ever since the fall of Andalusia (Muslim Spain) …Our history is replete with lies, from lies about the corrupt [Caliph] Harun Al-Rashid,…to the lie about Al-Qaeda and the Sept. 11 events, which asserted that Muslim terrorists committed it, and that it was not an internal American action by the Freemasons, which was mentioned in the Illuminati game cards ten years before it took place, and in over 15 Zionist and Freemason Hollywood-produced films in the 1990s.”

All of this was written the past two days while the “peace talks” continue, and State Dept. spokeswomen Jan Psaki broke her own ground rules on a blackout of day-to-day details of the talks by revealing that Obama’s personal Middle East envoy Martin Indyk joined a recent session.

“As we have said in the past, we are not planning to read out the details of these meetings,” Psaki added.

So why did she take pains to make a special statement about Indyk.

Not by coincidence,  Abbas has been complaining that Israel pressured the United States to keep Indyk out of the talks.

One of the unwritten ground rules of the talks of the “peace process” for more than 20 years has been to soothe the feathers of the Palestinian Authority.

If Abbas is unhappy, he might turn his back on the United States,  which certainly does not want that to happen.

If Psaki could get Abbas’ finger out of her eye, maybe she could see straight and realize that is exactly what is happening.

But Abbas digs his finger deeper and deeper in the collective eyes of the State Dept.

“In his speech to Fatah officials Saturday, he reiterated that the term “negotiations” means “no compromise.”

“Our positions are the same as previous ones,” he said. “This means Jerusalem is at the top of our list of priorities. A Palestinian state with east Jerusalem as its capital. Without that there will be no solution. There will be no state without Jerusalem, which is a red line for us.”

And, of course, “We don’t accept striking an Arab country [Syria] from outside.”

    The propaganda  blitz vomited from the political  leadership of the PA as well as its press represents a mendacious message of vitriol not intended to create peace between Israel and the PA.Whole generations of Palestinian Arabs continue to be subjected in newspapers, books and educational institutions to vicious attacks on the character, faith and endeavors by Israel to promote peace and terminate the protracted conflict.

  2. Those damn Freemasons.
    We see right through their clown outfits and little go-carts.

  3. Edward Lobel says:

    No sane rational person cares what Abbas has to say about this matter!

  4. The fact that Abbas is against it is the only reason I can think of to be in favor of U.S. military action in Syria.

    However, even as a very staunch supporter of Israel and a positive international role for the U.S., I don't agree with military action, either, or even supporting the rebels.

    Maybe as late as a year and a half ago, there were western-oriented democratic secular factions we could have successfully supported against Assad. But now, the rebel factions with the guns, money, and organization to replace Assad are either Al Queda or Moslem Brotherhood. Do we want someone like Morsi leading Syria…with Syria's huge stock of chemical weapons? I don't think so.

    Assad is evil, but he is rational. What replaces him will likely be evil…and not rational, either.

    At any rate, this is not the first time some ogre of a leader has gassed his own people. Assad's dad did it in the early 80s, and Saddam did it to the Kurds in the 90s. No one said at that time that we had to attack them for this; when we finally did invade Iraq, it was for entirely different reasons.

    If we really want to do some good now via military force, we need to enforce the NPT by destroying Iran's nuclear weapons program. Or at least, we should support an Israeli operation to do so. A defanged Iranian regime will cut the legs out from under Assad in terms of his biggest supporter, and perhaps might lead to a negotiated settlement. And maintaining the viability of the NPT is far more important than punishing Assad for using chemical WMDs inside his country, as terrible as that is.

    I can't help but think that the only reason Obama really wants to hit Assad, is he sees an opportunity to install the Moslem Brotherhood somewhere else, now that they have been driven out of power in Egypt. That is manifestly not worth the use of U.S. military muscle.

  5. AND HE IS RIGHT THEY DON’T NEED THIS NOW

  6. Lloyd Bergner says:

    Obama will learn, hopefully, but don't hold your breath, that his leading from behind and lack of experience has severe unintended consequences.

  7. Ch Hoffman says:

    when Senator Rand Paul and Mr Abbas are in agreement on an issue, it's good to be on the other side.

  8. truthseekr says:

    This whole faux peace process with a faux people is such an insane waste of time. Anyone who believes giving land to a false people – created to steal Israel’s land – will bring peace is in delusion. Insisting on East Jerusalem as their capital they know will never happen. Jews cannot give up the Temple Mount and G0d will not allow it. If it wasn’t for Him, Jews would have committed suicide long ago by giving away everything. We’re our own worst enemy because we have no leadership who can look at our history and know what G0d put us here to do. Our mission is inextricably tied to our Land; it’s impossible to cede it to enemies of G0d. We need to deport all Arabs who won’t swear allegiance to Israel as Jewish led, annex Judea and Samaria. The IDF with G0d’s help, will keep the peace after that’s done.

  9. Yechiel Baum says:

    It is not spitting in the face of the USA but rather, it is COLLUSION, not collision. Arabs like Abas and Obama stik together – playing games while duping the world for being so naïve and / or stupid!

  10. The truth is coming out about PA and US. Keep focusing on Him.
