PA PO’d: No Flow on Iranian Dough

Sunday, February 28th, 2016

Palestinian Authority officials are livid over an announcement by Iran that money promised to the families of “martyrs” will not flow through the Ramallah government coffers.

It seems Iran doesn’t trust the PA government’s sticky fingers – and perhaps Tehran also wants to stir the pot between Fatah and its proxy, Hamas a bit also. Hamas as a group is more Islamist and radical in its observance than the PA government’s ruling Fatah faction; moreover, Hamas is nearly entirely under Iran’s control whereas Fatah has many backers.

The International Affairs Adviser to the Iranian Parliament Speaker and Shura Council, Hossein Sheikh al-Islam, said Saturday that Tehran will not send the financial aid to the families who have lost their members in attacks on Israelis via the Ramallah-based Palestinian Authority (PA) government.

“Tehran will not send its aid package to the families of those killed … through the PA as it cannot be trusted,” Sheikh al-Islam told al-Resalah news website on Sunday, the semi-official Iranian FARS news agency reported.

Noting that Iran will dispatch its aid through a special channel, he added, “The financial aid package will be sent at the earliest; Iran doesn’t spare any efforts to support the resistance.”

Nabil Abu Rudeinah, spokesperson for PA leader Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen), called the Iranian move a “flagrant intrusion into internal Palestinian and Arab affairs.”

Rudeinah said “It would have been better if Iran would send its funds to the Palestinian institution responsible for Palestine’s heroes and their families, rather than resorting to crooked ways and illegal means,” according to the PA’s official WAFA news agency.

He added that al-Islam’s remarks are “unacceptable, not just [as] an overriding of the Palestinian legitimacy but a violation of all laws,” the Xinhua news agency reported.

Al-Islam’s interview with Alresalah was not spontaneous by any means: the online news site has a close link with the Hamas terror organization which controls Gaza. Hamas has become an Iranian proxy since seizing the region from the Palestinian Authority in 2007.

Iranian Ambassador to Lebanon Mohammed Fath’ali announced last Wednesday that Iran would pay Arab families $7,000 for each “martyr” who died attacking Israelis in Jerusalem. In addition, Iran promised to pay $30,000 to each Arab family whose home was demolished by Israel after one of its occupants murdered Israelis in a terror attack.

Although the funds are expected to be channeled through an Iranian charity it is not yet clear which one, nor how the money is to be distributed.

PA Groups Laud Tel Aviv Terrorist as a Martyr Ahead of Funeral

Sunday, January 10th, 2016

By Alexander J. Apfel/TPS

The Fatah movement has officially proclaimed the terrorist responsible for the death of two Israelis and an Arab father of 11 from Lod on January 1st, Nashat Melhem, a martyr on its Facebook page after he was killed by Israeli security forces on Friday, January 8. The post included an uncensored photograph of Melhem’s dead body, the result of a brief shootout with Israeli security officers.

The caption on the Fatah Facebook page reads, “Nashat Melhem died as a Martyr after an armed confrontation in the courtyard of a mosque in Umm Al-Fahm. Congratulations and may Allah receive you in heaven.”

The PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, further praised Melhem for what it described as “the Tel Aviv operation” and went on to describe his fate as an “execution.”

Moreover, a Hamas spokesman, Husam Badran, described Melhem as a “hero.” “Nashaat [sic] is an example of the free Palestinian who sacrifices himself in the defense of his own people and in support of their cause. The blood of the martyrs will remain a beacon for the [Palestinian] generations who will tread the same path,” he is quoted as saying by Ma’an News Agency.

Milhelm, 30, a resident of Arara in northern Israel was killed in a shootout with Israeli police on Friday when they discovered that he had been hiding in a mosque in his hometown. He had evaded capture in a week-long manhunt after he opened fire on Tel Aviv’s popular Dizengoff street.

His funeral was set to take place on Sunday January 10. However, Public Security Minister, Gilad Erdan delayed handing over his remains amid ongoing investigations of possible accomplices.

No Joy in Mudville: PA Bans Checkpoint Riot in Ramallah, Hamas Bans New Year’s Celebrations

Wednesday, December 30th, 2015

(JNi.media) On Wednesday afternoon, Palestinian Authority security forces prevented hundreds of protesters from continuing their march to the IDF checkpoint in Ramallah’s al-Bireh neighborhood, near the Jewish town of Beit El in Samaria, Ma’an reported.

Leading members of the Fatah movement were present at the march, including committee member Sultan Abu al-Einein, as well as PLO executive committee members Wassel Abu Youssef and Jamil Shihadeh. The secretary general of the Arab Liberation Front, Rakad Salem, and the secretary-general of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, Qais Abd al-Karim, were also in attendance. The Ma’an report presented this as a peaceful march, which it could have been — at the start. But the same story reported that once they realized they weren’t going to be allowed near the soldiers, dozens of youth left the march and instead headed to an area in al-Bireh where they clashed with Israeli forces.

So they had their riot after all. Amira Hass, an Ha’aretz reporter and columnist [JP: and Israeli settler living in Ramallah], wrote on Wednesday that the PA security forces have been engaged for some time in physically preventing demonstrations that inevitably blossom into riots and clashes. The Palestinian leadership is finally getting sick and tired of losing their children to suicidal stupidity.

According to Hass, many Judea and Samaria Arabs believe the knives intifada only hurt the cause of a 2-state solution. But they can’t say it out of respect for the families of the dead terrorists.

There’s definitely a permeating sense of despair in the Palestinian territories. Perhaps a realization that the murderous fantasy is over, and all it got them is about a billion dollars deeper in debt, and several hundred crazed kids dead.

In Gaza, Hamas put the icing on the cake by announcing a ban on New Year celebrations. The decree forbids restaurants and hotels to host celebrations on the occasion of New Year’s Day, Ma’am reported. A spokesman for the police in Gaza said, “The decision to ban restaurants and hotels from celebrating New Year’s Eve came as it is incompatible with the teachings of our religion, and its being primarily a Western tradition.”

He explained that “the suffering of the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip due to the siege imposed on them requires respect for the sufferings and sacrifices.”

Fatah Facebook Inciting Murder of Gershon Mesika

Sunday, November 22nd, 2015

(JNi.media) On Sunday morning, a female terrorist was attempting to stab a girl in the bus station at the junction of the Samaria Regional Brigade, when former Samaria Regional Council head Gershon Mesika noticed the incident and drove his car in her direction to try and stop her. Mesika’s car ran into a ditch after hitting the terrorist. At that point, according to Elyakim Gross from Itamar, he, Gross, shot two bullets into the terrorist’s body, and a soldier who had rushed over also shot her twice.

The “official Fatah” Facebook page offered an entirely different narrative:

“What happened at Hawara checkpoint. A witness said that Ashraqat Taha, 16-years-old, she wanted to cross the street near the barrier as a BMW vehicle run over her and then a settler got out from his car, his name is Mesika, the Chairman of the Council of Jewish settlements in the northern West Bank ,and he opened fire directly on the girl and then the Israeli soldiers came to the scene of the shooting and fired 10 bullets on the girl, Later they found that the girl was carrying a bag with her own laptop and then throw the knife next to her.”

Two radically different narratives, except the first one is supported by at least four eyewitness reports cited widely in Israeli media, and the second one cites an anonymous witness. And there’s the terrorist’s father, Taha Qatanani, who told a Palestinian news agency (see Google-translated page):

“Thank God my daughter has done what needs to be done … I am proud of every one of [my children].”

He also said his daughter constantly asked about current events, and was always asking her mother for “the best knives in the house.” (H/T Elder of Zion).

Not enough, apparently, to convince the official Fatah Facebook page, which published a picture of Gershon Mesika with crosshairs, urging people to assassinate him.

JNi.media complained to Facebook about the offending image, which was accompanied by the caption: “Killer of 16-year-old Girl at the checkpoint.”

Meanwhile, the same Fatah official Facebook page announced that “The Ministry of Health officially announces the martyrdom of the girl Ashraqat Taha, 16, years of Nablus (Shechem) near the Hawara checkpoint.”

JNi.media Received this response from Facebook to our complaint:

“We reviewed your report of ‎حركة التحرير الوطني الفلسطيني ” فتح “/الصفحة الرسمية‎’s photo.

“Thank you for taking the time to report something that you feel may violate our Community Standards. Reports like yours are an important part of making Facebook a safe and welcoming environment. We reviewed the photo you reported for containing graphic violence and found it doesn’t violate our Community Standards.”

Update: The incitement to murder post has now been removed.

Official PA Daily Links Mossad with Paris Massacres

Sunday, November 15th, 2015

The official Palestinian Authority daily published on Sunday an op-ed that stated that the Mossad was behind the bloody Islamic State (ISIS) murders in Paris Friday night and also ran Fatah party propaganda equating the ISIS with Israel.

The Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) translated and published the inciting material Sunday.

PMW published the image below, posted by Fatah, showing the Palestinian Authority flag along side of those of France, Russia and Lebanon, referring to ISIS attacks that blew up a Russian airplane in Egypt, the double suicide bombing in Lebanon last week and the attacks in Paris.

The op-ed on Sunday in the official Al-Hayat Al-Jadida daily stated:

It is not a coincidence that human blood was exploded in Paris at the same time that certain European sanctions are beginning to be implemented against settlement products, and while France leads Europe in advising the security council that will implement the two-state solution, Palestine and Israel – which the Israelis see as a warning of sudden danger coming from the direction of Europe, where the Zionist, occupying, settling endeavor was born…

The wise and correct thing is to look for who benefits. In short: They need to search the last place reached by the octopus arms of the Mossad… It is clear that its ‘Mossad’ will burn Beirut and Paris in order to achieve Netanyahu’s goals. He, who challenged the master of the White House, hides in his soul enough evil to burn the world.

PMW added, “The official PA daily pronounced the libel that Israel is like ISIS in the cartoon below, which shows an Israeli decapitating the Al-Aqsa Mosque next to an ISIS terrorist beheading a hostage, simultaneously and with the same sword, declaring that Israel and ISIS are the same.”

incitement-cutting-off-mosque-pmw

In case you missed it, the same Palestinian Authority daily last week ran another op-ed that blamed “Western and Israeli security services” for the explosions on the Russian airplane. The writer claimed:

The explosion of the Russian plane 23 minutes after its takeoff from Sharm el-Sheikh airport in the end of October, was not an ISIS operation but a terror operation orchestrated by international and regional security services….

If the rational estimations point to [the presence of] fingerprints of Western and Israeli security services, that leaves much room for questions… I must stress once again, that ISIS was not the one behind the destruction of the Russian plane on Oct. 31 above Sinai… this operation was beyond their capabilities, because of its meticulous implementation…. The operation was carried out by regional and international security services.”

IDF Shuts Down Hebron Radio Station for Incitement to Violence

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015

IDF soldiers shut down a Palestinian Authority radio station run by the PA’s leading Fatah faction in Hebron late Monday night in a joint IDF and Civil Administration operation in what the IDF called “part of the ongoing battle against incitement.”

Israeli military forces confiscated broadcasting equipment at the Al Hurriya radio station “in order to prevent the incitement which has caused a flare of violence in the region over recent weeks,” the IDF Spokesperson’s office said Tuesday morning.

“Incitement has been core in aggravating, encouraging and celebrating the recent wave of terror,” said the IDF. “In the past month Palestinians have executed 29 attacks (22 stabbings, four run-over attacks and three shooting attacks) against Israeli civilians and security forces in Hebron.”

The Al Hurriya radio station was formed in 2002 in Gaza by the Fatah faction’s “Palestinian National Liberation Movement” and was transferred to Hebron after the Hamas seized control over Gaza in 2007.
The station has been shut down twice, once in 2002 and again in 2008.

Arab Baby Named “Knife of Jerusalem”

Monday, October 26th, 2015

A baby girl born to Palestinian Arab parents living in the southern Gaza Strip was named “Knife of Jerusalem,” according to the official Fatah Facebook page, as explained by Palestinian Media Watch.

The birth certificate and a picture of baby Knife of Jerusalem was posted on the Fatah Facebook page on Oct. 23, 2015.

Fatah is the party of acting Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas.

AS PMW also noted, a Gazan family named their baby after the murdering terrorist Muhannad Halabi, who stabbed to death two Israelis in Jerusalem’s Old City on Oct. 3.
