Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah is challenging those who try to minimize its leadership role in the Palestinian conflict with Israel by ignoring any actions that seek peace with Israel and instead promoting only actions of violence and terror.
It even made the fictitious claim that its attacks have killed 11,000 Israelis.
The faction head by Abbas, who has been crowned by the Obama administration as the best friend for Israel since Yasser Arafat, not only did not mention the Oslo Accords but also boasted that one of members of the Palestinian Authority security force, given weapons by Israel to fight terror, infiltrated into a Jewish community near Gaza.
One of the actions it bragged about was being the “first Palestinian faction to reach the [Israeli] nuclear reactor,” which is actually a reference to a bus hijacking and murder of three Israeli civilians on their way to work at the nuclear plant.
Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) has documented a post this week on Fatah’s Facebook page celebrating and bragging about Fatah’s murder of Israeli civilians:
“Listen well! To whoever does not know Fatah and argues with this giant movement: Fatah has killed 11,000 Israelis,” the Facebook post states in a translated version on PMW’s website.
“Fatah has sacrificed 170,000 Martyrs (Shahids).
“Fatah was the first to carry out operations [terror attacks] during the first Intifada, and it was the first Palestinian faction to reach the nuclear reactor in Dimona [sic].
“Fatah was the first to fight in the second Intifada [also known as the Oslo War]….
(Baha Al-Sa’id, an officer in the Preventive Security Forces, infiltrated an Israeli settlement on the border with Gaza) [parenthesis in source]…
“Fatah was the first to defeat the Zionist enemy (Battle of El-Karameh) [parenthesis in source]…
“Fatah led the Palestinian attack on Israel in the UN
“Fatah leads the peaceful popular resistance against Israel…
“Stop and think before you attack [Fatah].”
