Student Union opens ‘hasbara’ room in effort to fill public diplomacy vacuum.
Palestinian Authority TV, is ramping up incitement to kill Jews by re-broadcasting a year-old music video praising terrorists for murdering more than 100 Israeli civilians, with dubbing by PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas.
The terrorists are serving lengthy jail sentences, some of them multiple life terms. Abbas last year added the release of all Palestinian Authority prisoners, including heavy-duty terrorists, to his list of non-negotiable demands of Israel.
“We will not rest until all [prisoners] are freed, and the prisons are emptied,” Abbas said in a speech, part of which was included in the music video.
Less than six weeks before a visit from President Barack Obama, whose administration has praised Abbas for his supposed “efforts” to halt incitement, PA TV aired for the 12th and 13th time the video. It was translated and published by Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), which also reported that it was aired twice last Thursday.
Dedicated “to our brave prisoners,” it honors terrorists who are in Israeli jails for planning the murders of 30 Israelis at the Park Hotel during the Passover Seder in 2002.
Other attacks carried out by the terrorists include a suicide bombing at Hebrew University, where nine people were killed, three attacks in Jerusalem in which 30 people were murdered, and an attack at a Bar Mitzvah celebration.
The Obama administration’s view of the Palestinian Authority does not reach far beyond Foggy Bottom.
Hillary Clinton, when she still was U.S. Secretary of State, praised Abbas and PA Prime Minister Salam Fayyad in December for “their real achievements on the ground” citing the safe streets of the West Bank, the overhaul of government institutions and helping to enhance Israel’s security.
She told American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) two years ago, “We encourage them to redouble their efforts to put an end to incitement and violence, continue to ensure security and rule of law, and ingrain a culture of peace and tolerance among Palestinians.”
