From the Stop the Presses Department, via Israel National News, with thanks to Kemaste:
Despite Abbas’ well-polished image as a moderate, his administration has been presiding over an incessant campaign of incitement against Israel that spans the media and university centers.
Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah controlled press has been at the forefront of incitement against Israel. At the same time, PA universities, where tomorrow’s PA leaders are getting their education, are becoming more radicalized and opened about recruiting suicide bombers directly from the student body.
The PA’s state television has been accusing Israel of poisoning Palestinians with radiation. Gaza TV reported on Saturday, April 30, that Israeli machines killed a 55-year-old Palestinian woman who apparently died of a heart attack after being searched with an American-made device.
That story was depicted in the print media with a cartoon that in western countries would be condemned as anti-Semitic propaganda: A hand with a Star of David on its sleeve holds up a red colored machine called “Rafah crossing”, emitting waves that are called “death and illness”.
The cartoon appeared in a newspaper, Al-Hayat-Al-Jadeeda, a paper owned and controlled by the Fatah faction of the PLO, headed by Mahmoud Abbas.
Moreover, the official news agency of the PA, claimed on Thursday that Israel deliberately killed “an aged woman” with an American made “radiation machine”. The Palestinian Authority itself, announced last Tuesday that it was closing the Rafah (Rafiah) crossing to protect Palestinians against “Israeli use of a radiation device for searching Palestinian travelers.”
And a related story, “IDF Kills Islamic Jihad Terrorist Who “Escaped” PA Prison” here:
Battle with terrorists: The IDF killed a top Islamic Jihad terrorist who supposedly escaped from a Palestinian Authority prison last week. Another one was caught, and an Israeli soldier was killed.
The operation took place Monday morning in the Arab-populated village of Tzieda, west of Netanyah. Tzieda is one of the villages the PA demanded be included in the Israeli handover of Tul Karem six weeks ago. Israel refused, citing knowledge that many terrorists, including those responsible for the recent lethal bombing of a Tel Aviv nightclub, were hiding out there.
Palestinian Media Watch issued a report pointing out that Rani’s “escape” indicates that PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) is using the same “strategies of duplicity that were used by the Arafat regime – arresting terrorists immediately after bombings, only to quietly report their ‘escape’ after the bombing was no longer a news item.”
