Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah movement justified stabbing attacks against Israelis this week, the research institute Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) reported on Monday.

On Sunday, Fatah uploaded a photo to its official Twitter account of the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, with a “window” cut-out in the shape of a knife, accompanied by the Arabic caption: “Israel is forcing the young Palestinians to follow this path to Jerusalem. Leave our land, you, your occupation, and your soldiers, and let us live in peace.”

PMW’s Nan Jacques Zilberdik wrote, “Throughout the current wave of terror attacks, the Palestinian Authority and Fatah leaders have claimed complete innocence, accusing Israel of provoking Palestinians to attack in ‘self-defense.’”

Taking issue with this assertion, she said that the PA and Fatah have incessantly promoted and supported the terrorist attacks in various outlets, key among them Facebook and Twitter – which reach the greatest amount of young Palestinians, who are big social-media users.

As Palestinian affairs expert and analyst at the Gatestone Institute Khaled Abu Toameh told The Algemeiner in October – about a month into the current terror wave in Israel, “All the rioters and rock-throwers we are seeing have smartphones, computers, websites and Facebook and Twitter accounts.”

    There is no sanction for bigotry! The Fatah, Hamas, and islamic Jihad leaderships in both the Gaza Strip and the Palestinian Authority have incessantly promoted wanton stabbings, car-rammings, stoning, shootings, and petrol bombings of innocent Israeli men, women, and children since September 2015. Such incitement in the social media is responsible for the deaths and maiming of hundreds of innocent Israelis victims and incited, violent Palestinian perpetrators. No one has benefited from such mayhem, and it continues to no apparent end.

    President Obama continues to support abbas and encourage abbas/pa/plo incitement. A Jewish home or even an extra bedroom is an impediment to peace but killing Jews, glorifying murder, sponsoring murder of Jews is Okay according to Obama/Kerry/Hillary. Remember Hillary has NOT condemned the incitement or the murders

    This is a war and as such it is time to shut down the enemies means of communication,cut out phones, radio,media,and Internet,if the enemy wishes to communicate via carrier pigeon shoot the birds out of the sky. Do it before it becomes an absolute matter of do or die.Whoever complains about the Arab Worlds lack of a free press,If the Arabs were to win this war there will be no freedom of the press,no freedom of religion,no freedom of speech. Those lucky enough to not be slaughtered or sold.intl slavery wod be lucky to escape with there lives.

  • Once again, we see the fallout from social media, which are of no redeeming social value.
