In response to recent terrorist attacks carried out by Palestinians against Israeli civilians, Hamas issued praise, while the Palestinian Authority called their occurrence an “Israeli fabrication.”

In the last few days, several terrorist attacks took place in the Jerusalem and Hebron areas. A border police officer was stabbed and moderately wounded in Hebron, a female police officer was almost stabbed at the Al-Za’im checkpoint in east Jerusalem, a firebomb attack was carried out on the Jerusalem-Modi’in road, and three police officers were injured in a car-ramming attack in Al-Tur in Jerusalem. Israeli security forces shot dead both Palestinians involved in the stabbing attacks.

In response, the Palestinian Authority issued condemnations of Israel. It claimed the stabbings were fabricated by Israel in order to “justify the racially motivated assassination” of the two Palestinians.

Netanyahu Lauds Trump for ‘Reassertion of American Leadership in the Middle East’

After their meeting in Jerusalem on Monday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu thanked US President Donald Trump for his “reassertion...

It called the “assassination” of the “martyr” Ali Abu Ghannam – a 17-year-old Palestinian who attempted to attack Israeli soldiers with a cleaver – an act of “organized terror” and a “crime against humanity,” saying it was was “an integral part of the roster of ongoing Israeli crimes against the Palestinian people, [crimes] which the PA intends to refer to the International Criminal Court.”

The Palestinian Authority president likewise issued a condemnation, saying it was a “crime” carried out by Israeli soldiers, “under the fabricated excuse of [thwarting] an attempted stabbing of an Israeli soldier at the Al-Za’im checkpoint.”

Hamas, on the other hand, did not deny that the attacks occurred, but instead lauded them. Hamas spokesman, Hussam Bardan, said, “Hamas welcomes all forms of resistance in the West Bank and East Jerusalem,” commenting that, “these operations were unique [acts of] heroism and courage that deserve everyone’s appreciation and respect.” He added that, “The occupation can expect further surprises in the future from the people and from the men of resistance.”

Hamas’ websites and Facebook pages also carried praises of the attacks, and called for an armed uprising – an Intifada – in response to the incidents.

  • “If we are serious about peace in the Middle East, then we need to stop pretending that the Israelis are dealing with a rational enemy they can negotiate with; because in doing that, we are helping to feed a massive political lie whose gravitational force has become so great, it has warped reality. It is Hamas who has turned Gaza into a ware-zone recently, not Israel…”

    “Is it racist to criticize the Palestinians as the world’s most tiresome cry-babies, with a bogus cause, and a plight that is entirely self-inflicted?

    …I see the Palestinian cause as a lie; a lie designed to exploit Western liberal guilt…”

    PAT CONDELL SAID:

    “Every concession Israel makes is met with more demands, and more excuses not to negotiate; they [the Palestinians] could have had peace ten times over if they wanted it, but they [the Palestinians] don’t want peace, they want victory, and they won’t be happy until Israel is wiped from the map.”

    “I no longer believe that the Israelis should give back Jerusalem…

    PAT CONDELL SAID:

    Experience has taught us that the Islamic mentality views ANY concession as weakness to be exploited further. And besides, too many so-called Palestinians seem less concerned with peace and freedom, than with driving Jews into the sea, so the bombings would not stop.”

    PAT CONDELL SAID:

    “The truth is that Jews have contributed more to humanity than any other group of people; way more than Muslims, vastly more than Muslims…”

  • The Muslim Colonists: Forgotten Facts about the Arab-Israeli Conflict (first published in Gatestone Institute) http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/4611/muslim-colonists by Ezequiel Doiny “…The Muslim rulers not only kept the number of Jews low through discriminatory taxes, they also increased the Muslim population by providing incentives for Muslim colonists to settle in the area. Incentives included free land, 12 years exemption from taxes and exemption from military service. …By the early 1800s the Arab population in Palestine was very little (just 246,000) it was in the late 1800s and early 1900s that most Muslim Colonists settled in Palestine because of incentives by the Ottoman Government to resettle displaced Muslim populations because of events such as the Austro-Hungarian Occupation of Bosnia-Herzegovina, the Crimean War and World War 1. Those events created a great quantity of Muslim Refugees that were resettled somewhere else in the Ottoman Empire… In 1878 an Ottoman law granted lands in Palestine to Muslim colonists. Muslim colonists from Crimea and the Balkans settled in Anatolia, Armenia, Lebanon, Syria and Palestine.” …there were about five million Muslims displaced due to the Austro-Hungarian occupation of Bosnia-Herzegovina, the Crimean War, Balkan wars, the Turkish war of independence and World War I. …estimates of the population of Palestine in different periods. As the demographic data below shows, most Muslims living in Palestine in 1948 when the State of Israel was created had been living there for fewer than 60 years: 1890: Arab Population 432,000 1947: Arab Population 1,181,000 Growth in Arab population from 1890 to 1947: 800,000″
