Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas paid tribute to World War II era Hitler-supporting Mufti Haj Amin al-Husseini as well as several known terror leaders responsible for the deaths of Israelis at a rally in Gaza City Friday that marked the 48th anniversary of Fatah’s first armed attack on Israel which took place on January 1st 1965.

During the televised speech, made to a crowd of hundreds of thousands, Abbas made mention of, among others,  Abdel Aziz Rantisi, Sheik Ahmed Yassin–both former leaders of Hamas assassinated by Israel for their role in terrorizing the Jewish state-and Marwan Bargouti, who is currently serving time in an Israeli prison for his role in the deaths of five Israelis.

This was Fatah’s first such rally in the territory since a 2007 coup by Hamas ousted the party from power. In his speech Abbas addressed the division, saying that reunification was near. “Soon we will regain our unity,” he said of the two sides, which have drawn closer since the end of the eight-day November conflict, Operation Pillar of Defense, that pitted Israel against Hamas.

“The success of the rally is a success for Fatah, and for Hamas too,” said Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri. “The positive atmosphere is a step on the way to regain national unity.”

Abbas, who is not allowed to enter Gaza, but who was given permission by Hamas to stage the rally and address the crowd, said he would soon return to Gaza and that unification with Hamas would be  “a step on the way to ending the (Israeli) occupation.”

A number of Fatah activists and officials did make the trip to Gaza for the rally, including Jibril Rajoub, who formerly headed the Palestinian security forces in the West Bank, Fatah cofounder Abdul Aziz Shaheen and Fadwa Barghouti, the wife of jailed terrorist Marwan Barghouti.

In the West Bank Thursday, Abbas signed a presidential decree changing the name of the Palestinian Authority to the “State of Palestine,” following the Palestinians’ upgraded status at the United Nations to a non-member observer state.

According to the decree, reported by the official Palestinian news agency Wafa, all stamps, signs, and official letterhead will be changed to bear the new name.

  • . I recently bowed out of the interfaith Holocaust service, because it was a custom to include Hatikvah at the end, but now some Christian groups object as they support the Palestinians and the Muslim Imams would either sit or leave during the Hatikvah. Perhaps interfaith Holocaust programs no longer make sense, at least to me. I do not need the stress of seeing disrespect being afforded to Israel and nor do I wish to compromise by leaving Hatikvah out. The interfaith Holocaust memorials started as well intentioned way for the Jewish people and other groups to pause and reflect on man’s capacity to perpetuate unbelievable cruelty against his fellow and to commiserate as a group and others, with the Jews and hopefully prevent this nightmare from reoccurring. Over the years it was understandably modified to include other victims of genocidal mass killings, though these mass killings were not really analogous, as the Nazis were obsessed at not just killing Jews as a competing group, but Hitler desired to eliminate our creed and it’s pervasive influence on humanity, particularly Christian doxy. As a result of Muslim participation and twisted liberalism, this is morphing into a twisted canard where Israel is being blamed for perpetuating ethnic killings against the Palestinians as the Jews were slaughtered by the Nazis. One can understand the Islamo-Nazis belief system with a quote from the Talmud. We do not see things as they are. We see them as we are. RABBI DR.

    • Eugenics: the movement that gave birth to German Nazism was born in the USA, Obama is a partner in our destruction, when is the world going to open their eyes and stop listening to the media. Yes EUGENICS, it is no secret start to learn abuot it or wait for the next holocaust to come.

  • What is the response of the gov’t of Israel to the Abbas embrace of the Mufti?

    Will the Israeli gov’t issue a condemnation? rabbi dr. bernhard rosenberg

  • As the child of parents who survived the concentration camps I have dedicated a my academic career and my clerical calling to educate the next generation to learn the lessons of the Nazi horrors. The first lesson of the holocaust is that the murder of6 million Jews in 21 nations did not begin with an edict to cast the Jews into the ovens. It began with a policy of demonizing the Jews as if they were less than human. Throughout WWII, the exiled Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin Al Husseini, operated out of Hitler’s bunker and broadcast and rantings that called for the murder of the Jews on Nazi radio, in the Arabic language, a daily radio message that was beamed to the middle east, while the Mufti actively recruited Arabs to join SS units that systematically rounded up and executed thousands of Jewish families in the Balkans.

    Last Friday, on January 4th, 2013, Mahmood Abbas, the leader of what the UN has defined as the State of Palestine, issued a speech in which he praised the legacy of the Mufti of Jerusalem and of slew of Arabs who have murdered Jews over the past generation. To ignore Abbas’s message is ignore the first lesson of the holocaust, which is that anyone who glorifies hose who murder Jews is to be held culpable in the advocacy of mass murder/

    It is therefore incumbent on every person of conscience to condemn Abbas and to break off all relations with him and the entity that he represents.

    I await a response from the representatives of every Jewish organization and from every responsible cleric.

    There is a adage in the Talmud which is that SILENCE IS AGREEMENT. RABBI DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG 5 FAIRHILL RD. EDISON N.J. 08817

  • This is political correctness gone berserk. An intellectual fabrication based on subjective analyses. Caricatured by none other than the UN itself. Walt Disney along with some of his cartoon characters must be rolling in their collective enclaves holding their sides, laughing maniacally, doing imitations of Mel Blanc. This audience is laughing to but for different reasons. This worse than a sin, it is a stupidity.

    This is life-imitating art in the heady stratosphere of Looney Tunes. The who, what, where, when,- the facts preceding the Why and How don’t exist except in the ideological mindsets of ‘State of Palestine” supporters. This really would be Lewis Carroll’s Alice, the Mad Hatter, and the Queen if reality’s consequences weren’t so palpable. The Rothschild, The Protocols… and Holocaust Denial. Did somebody say anti-Semitic soap operas on PATV? Did somebody say Apocalyptic Shia Iran?

    As the truth- it isn’t. As propaganda probably many in the BDS movement will see it for what it is, appeasement. The rest of us in the harsh wilderness of the totality of experience and existence know that what happens on the ground is what happens. Perception may be the perceived reality but that can change in an instant, aggressively and oh, what a revelation!

  • According to Wikipedia: The first official meeting of Fatah took place on October 10,1959, whereas the first Fatah terror attack (against the Israeli National Water Carrier) took place on January 1, 1965. Ergo, the Fatah rally in Gaza on Friday didn’t mark the 48th anniversary of the founding of Fatah, but rather it marked the 48th anniversary of Fatah’s first terrorist attack.

  • BS”D
    I doubt Mr. Abbas would had in mind the relation between the Mufti and the dictator. It seems he had in mind the relation of the Mufti with the Muslim community of Palestine (Israel) and the Arabic speaking population of the region. I hope that this is the case.
    Shabbath shalom!

  • You describe Marwan Barghouti as a “jailed activist.”
    Yes; he was so active that he’s serving 5 life sentences for murdering Israelis.

  • No big surprise. Abbas wrote a Holocaust revisionist book.

  • as a typical muslim the only Jews that Abbas supports are dead Jews ..He loves the
    Mufti and Hitler because of the Final Solution which replicated Muhammad’s genocide of the Jews of Quarayza…an event that 99.9% of muslims celebrate…This is simply a matter of one sociopath celebrating another sociopath…

    Hamas Commander Reportedly Urges Hezbollah to Join Forces Against Israel

    JNS.org – Five months after Israeli forces tried to assassinate Hamas military commander Mohammed Deif in Gaza, Deif appears to have signed a letter that the terrorist group claims he wrote in hiding. The letter, addressed to Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah, expressed Deif’s condolences for the death of Hezbollah terrorists during Sunday’s reported Israeli airstrike in Syria. Deif is said to have survived multiple assassination attempts, but he has not been seen in public for years. According to the Hezbollah-linked Al-Manar [...]

The cracks receded from view over time, as other news obscured them. Then came the evening of Aug. 9, 2014, [...]

In the season 4 finale episode, which aired on Dec. 21, CIA black ops director Dar Adal, played by F. Murray Abraham, justifies a deal he made with a Taliban leader by referencing Begin.

It’s important to ground our Torah-based thoughts into real-life activism. To view our act [...]

    JNS.org – The story of the Exodus from Egypt is a tale as old as time itself, to borrow a turn of phrase. It’s retold every Passover, both at the seder table and whenever “The Ten Commandments” is aired on television. But the latest adaptation—Ridley Scott’s epic film, “Exodus: Gods and Kings”—fails to meet expectations. Scott’s “Exodus” alters the source material to service the story and ground the tale, but the attempt to reinvent the biblical narrative becomes laughable. Moses [...]
