In case you are wondering why I get sick to my stomach whenever I read that mahmoud abbas, the dictator* running Palestinian Arab-controlled Judea and Samaria (also known as the west bank), and his “fatah” party, referred to as moderate, here\’s one of the reasons.
abbas\’s just released message to the “Shabiba” (the Palestinian Arab youth movement):
“Teach your children to love the land; Teach them that we live a life of suffering; Teach them that there is a seed in the ground; If they water it with blood, a revolution will flower; Teach them that Fatah is the eternal revolution; That the \’Storm\’; Is the blade of the intifada; And that the Shabiba are the knights of the rocks”. reads the message.
Water it with blood? Fatah is the eternal revolution? The storm\’ is the blade of the intifada (violent uprising)?
How moderate does that seem to you?
But, we are told by international media – including a good many of our own in the United States, that abbas and fatah are “moderate”.
These are the people the world demands that Israel make peace with.
* mahmoud abbas was elected as President of the so-called “Palestinian Territories” in 2005 – to a four year term. ending in January, 2009. When the term was up, no elections were allowed, and none have been allowed since. Therefore, since 2009 he has been an unelected dictator.
