In a crazed example of The-Jews-are-responsible-for-all-evil paranoia, according to Palestinian Media Watch (via IMRA), the Palestinian Authority is now blaming Jews for the attack on a Paris synagogue last summer:
“One of the common tactics of Palestinian Authority (PA) propaganda is to blame Israel for Palestinian and Arab terrorism. Now a prominent PA newspaper editor has come up with a new twist on this tactic.
“On June 13, 2003, a Belgian citizen tried to blow up a synagogue in Belgium, using two gas balloons hidden in his car. Two months ago (November 15, 2003), two cars exploded in front of a synagogue in Istanbul, causing the deaths of 23 people.
“Last week a new libel was invented by the editor of the PA official daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, in an interview on PA TV. The editor explained that because Israel suffers from low immigration, it was Israel who started last month’s fire in the Parisian Synagogue — to convince French Jews to immigrate to Israel.
“The following are the words of Hafez Barghouty on PA TV: ‘The Secret Zionists gangs have been trying, and are acting in France in the same way they used to act in Arab countries- Iraq, Egypt and Morocco, blowing up… Jewish synagogues in order to force them [the Jews] to immigrate [to Israel]. So after the attack on a synagogue, the Israeli ambassador in France called for all the Jews in France to immigrate [to Israel]…
“‘…There are Israeli or Zionist gangs that carry out terror attacks against Jews and force them to immigrate [to Israel], because Israel suffers from emigration.'”
