The Palestinian Authority wrote the United Nations Tuesday of “ongoing escalated Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people” but did not even hint of any condemnation of the murder of kidnapped teenagers Naftali Frankel, Gilad Sha’ar and Eyal Yifrach.

The United States has made a big deal out of Mahmoud Abbas’ one-time condemnation of the abductions, but the only Palestinian Authority reaction since the discovery that the teenagers were murdered has been a condemnation of Israeli counter-terrorist maneuvers..

“Those who kidnapped the three Israeli teenagers want to destroy us,” Abbas said two weeks ago in Saudi Arabia.. “First and foremost [these teenagers] are human beings like us. It is our responsibility to search for them and to return them to their families. We will hold their kidnappers accountable, whoever they are.”

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu also has praised Abbas for helping in the search for the bodies, but the quantity and content of official Fatah and Palestinian Authority statements clearly show that the condemnations and assistance in the search were simply window dressing.

Following the discovery of the teenagers; bodies Monday night, Fatah posted pictures of “Israelis crying over killed soldiers,” Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) reported.

Despite the two-week-old condemnation from Abbas after the news of the abductions broke, Fatah celebrated by posting on its official Facebook page a “caricature showing the three kidnapped boys as mice caught on the hooks of a fishing rod,” PMW added.

The Permanent Observer of the State of Palestine to the United Nations, Ambassador Riyad Mansour, sent on Tuesday identical letters to the UN Secretary-General the, president of the UN Security Council and the president of the U.N. General Assembly “on the ongoing escalated Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people in West Bank and Gaza.”

The Palestinian Authority’s official WAFA news agency reported, “Mansour underscored that many Palestinians were either killed or injured during Israeli bombardment on Gaza in the past two weeks, stressing that the escalation of Israeli aggression threatens to further destabilize the already-fragile situation on the ground, pulling the region into more violence, which, he said, requires the attention of the international community, particularly the UN security council’s attention, whose mission is to preserve international peace and security.”

His only condemnation was not over the kidnap-murders but instead over the alleged  “collective punishment since the beginning of the Israeli military aggression in search of three allegedly abducted settlers.”

Yes, he actually said they were “allegedly” kidnapped,” just as Abbas stated two weeks ago, despite his “condemnation.”

Since the discovery of the three teenagers’ bodies Monday night, WAFA’s website made no mention of missile attacks on Israel and only reported on “settlers’ attacks,” that Israeli is planning to “seize Palestinian land… for settlement construction: and that a “settler” driver deliberately ran over an Arab near Hebron.

  5. Chaya Mindal says:

    Exactly! Netanyahu needs to stop the charade!

  6. The world should wake up to the truth NOW,

  7. They are in heaven with God!Israel will answer this horrour!

    I really want the Israel to pass the law to ban all the Islamic terrorism movements in all of these Israel lands.and starting to conitune wipe out all enclaves terrorists in Israel now and that will cause the terrorists movements collapse right there..

  13. and what about their (PA’s) own aggression?? Israel’s is retaliation in defense not aggression

  14. Kim Sloan says:

    The Hamas & Fatah are running like rats after they created this kidnapping and murder of the three boys, and now I heard one jewish girl was recovered that had also been kidnapped. The P.A. is never going to have a statehood when it allows this to happen! Israel is there only hope to show the world they want to have peace, live in harmony, but instead they thrive on violence, and hate! Sorry PA the ball was in your court, and you chose to use it as a weapon instead of an olive branch.

  15. Diane Hudson says:

    Israel Keep Defending you people! I sure wish USA would stand behind Israel! I will always stand with Israel.

  16. Despite the two-week-old condemnation from Abbas after the news of the abductions broke, Fatah celebrated by posting on its official Facebook page a “caricature showing the three kidnapped boys as mice caught on the hooks of a fishing rod,” Pretty close to Hitler’s depiction of Jews as sewer rats. Observing the success of Jihadist propaganda and outright lies over the years, even here in America among too many liberals yet, not hard to understand the Nazi’s success in vilifying Jews. Arabs sided with Hitler against Jews and the beat goes on.

  17. Boo Hoo you asked for it you should get it. Three innocent lives lost because of Murders. Palestine deserves to be destroyed. They are such cowards. GOD BLESS ISRAEL.

  18. Uzi Kattan says:

    It doesn’t matter what name the Arabs use, they’re the same parts of one terror organization. Fatah needs to be destroyed as well.

  19. wipe the murdering scum out of the land god himself gave you israel bomb them intill none of them is left. god bless israel.

  20. Susie Suzi G says:

If a dog is ssi k with a illness you put it out of its misery and hamas and all those sick childkillesr need to be put out of there’s

  22. David Elliot says:

    The hell with PLO,Hamas Hezbollah AND THE rats Ayatollahs

  23. Gary Myers says:

  24. Defense is not aggression! Annihilation of the Arab terrorists is defense!

  25. This is one of the most disgusting emblem I have ever seen. This tells a lot about these savages that have no mercy for anything. All they care about is self satisfaction of crimes they commit.

  26. Ina Ina says:

    death penalt5y
