Fatah Brags That Abbas Started Current Wave of Palestinian Terror
The official Fatah Facebook page published “an important announcement” heaping praise on the current wave of attacks on Jews.
It is couched in religious terms, starting off with “In the name of Allah the Merciful: The Almighty said: ‘And We desired to show favor unto those who were oppressed in the earth, and to make them examples and to make them the inheritors.'”
The article then goes on to praise Mahmoud Abbas for his speech on September 30 at the UN General Assembly, which was, in their words, “the launch of a new phase is in the development of the decisions of the [Fatah] Central Council into action, activating the popular resistance on the ground, in conjunction with the diplomatic offensive and political fights in all arenas of the United Nations and international organizations.”
The historic speech of the President in the UN constituted a turning point and a new dawn which manifested itself in the popular uprising, “The Rage of Jerusalem”, that started in the capital Jerusalem and expanded to Hebron and (to the other) the provinces of the homeland, in a heroic and spectacular implementation which restored to the national cause its radiance and status, as all the crimes of the occupation failed to hurt it and deter it, and the popular uprising even succeeded in spreading terror and bringing about a lack of personal security for the colonists, and the streets of Jerusalem and the Palestinian (West) Bank became places of constant friction and clashes…

The Fatah announcement ends with “It’s a revolution until victory … until victory … until victory.”
And it then shows this photo of a young woman wearing a headband for a youth organization in Fatah called “The Sisters of Dalal,” referring to terrorist Dalal Mughrabi, who was responsible for murdering 38 Israelis, including 13 children.
The choice of Abbas’ September 30 speech as the launching point of the murder spree is significant. The very next day was the day that Eitam and Na’ama Henkin were murdered.
Palestinian newspapers are quoting this statement.
At the same time that the media is claiming that Abbas is condemning violence, the organization that he leads is bragging that he is inspiring the murders of Jews.
