Masked Arab youths throwing stones from a roof in the Old City of Jerusalem

Palestinian Authority diplomat ‘Abdullah Abu Shawish recently led a tour of the UN headquarters in New York with Canadian youths, members of the International Relations Students’ Association of McGill University (IRSAM), where he boasted of how proud he was to have been a stone thrower himself and to be teaching his own children to throw stones at Israelis.

Listen to the recording (some browsers may not show it), published on Tuesday by Ynet, where Abu Shawish says (verbatim):


“We are very clever and very expert with throwing the stones. We are very proud to do that. We will not stop to learn our kids to do this, we are very proud to say that. Every catching a Palestinian who stone, we go to the jail. We are very proud that we are stone throwers. I’m one of them. Now I became a little bit older, but I still resist and my kids.”

To Remind you, on the Eve of Rosh Hashanah in September 2015, Alexander Levlovitz, 64, was killed when his car came under attack by Arab assailants who were hurling stones, forcing him off the road and into a ditch where he hit a pole and died.

Israel’s ambassador to the UN, Danny Danon, responded harshly in a statement saying, “The Palestinians are no longer trying to hide the truth: the Palestinian leadership and its representatives incite against Israel and openly encourage terrorism, and the international community must not allow this.”

Danon added: “It is inconceivable that within the UN, which is supposed to establish peace and protect human rights, a diplomat would incite to violence and terrorism that injure and even kill innocent Israelis.”

Or, as the IRSAM website so clearly states: “As a federally incorporated, not-for-profit corporation with special consultative status to the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations, IRSAM has something to offer to everyone within and outside the McGill community.”

And by “everyone” they likely mean to include homicidal sociopaths such as ‘Abdullah Abu Shawish.
