October 2, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – Hat tip to the Investigative Project on Terrorism...today Binyamin Netanyahu demanded that the PA leadership condemn the Arab terrorists who killed an Israeli couple as they were driving their four children home.
In his most recent public appearance, Mahmoud Abbas, leader of the PA, failed to even refer to the incident while its controlling faction, HAMAS praised the killing.
The Investigative Project on Terrorism posted an excerpt from a speech by Abbas made on PA television which clearly demonstrates his stoking of the worsening jihad taking place in Israel.
"The Al-Aqsa [Mosque] is ours... and they have no right to defile it with their filthy feet. We will not allow them to, and we will do everything in our power to protect Jerusalem... We bless every drop of blood that has been spilled for Jerusalem, which is clean and pure blood, blood spilled for Allah, Allah willing. Every martyr (Shahid) will reach Paradise, and everyone wounded will be rewarded by Allah," Palestinian Authority (PA) President Abbas said in a speech, segments of which were aired on official PA TV and posted on his website."
About the incident Palestinian Media Watch has this to say:
“Palestinian Media Watch has documented that the Palestinian Authority has led a vicious incitement campaign against Israel calling for violence in recent weeks. Palestinians are fed a steady diet of statements by senior PA and Fatah leaders, claiming that the Al-Aqsa Mosque is "in danger," and that Palestinians must defend it through Ribat, a religious war to liberate or defend what is claimed to be Islamic land. PA Chairman Abbas chose to open his speech Wednesday at the UN with this PA libel. Specifically, he stated that Israel is scheming to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque.”
U.S. Secretary of State Kerry, in the standard boilerplate statement, said the “world community” must act to stop the violence.
Fatah, Abbas’ political party claimed responsibility for the murder, as the Western Journalism news website notes “Senior Fatah official Mahmoud Al-Aloul, who is a member of the Fatah Central Committee, was revealed by Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) as having announcing responsibility on Facebook for the murder of Rabbi Eitam and Naama Henkin outside Itamar in Samaria,” Arutz Sheva in Israel reported.
