JNS.org – The Palestinian Authority (PA) on Wednesday blocked Palestinian protesters from marching towards the Beit El Junction, north of Ramallah.

The protest was organized by the Palestinian Fatah faction to celebrate the 51st anniversary of its first suicide car bomb attack against Israel, which occurred at that junction. PA President Mahmoud Abbas also heads Fatah.

Senior Fatah officials complained about the PA preventing them from protesting at the Beit El Junction, denouncing the PA leadership for “assaulting public freedoms, including the freedom of expression,” according to the Jerusalem Post.

    Freedom of expression doesn’t extend to causing civil unrest or inciting violence if they weren’t celebrating a car bomb would be better.
