Can one dare to imagine a Westerner boasting that he killed 11,000 Muslims or 11,000 of any visible minority group? There would be an outcry published in every single media outlet, and there should be; but in the case of Fatah bragging about murdering 11,000 Israelis, it is not a “legitimate” news item deemed worthy of widespread mass media publication. We already see the media brouhaha when Palestinians get killed in defensive strikes by Israelis.
This consistency in covering up Muslim crimes for fear of reprisals or of being called “Islamophobic” or racist, is outrageously damaging to Israel and to Western homeland security.
Fatah, meanwhile, is controlled by Mahmoud Abbas, who is reputedly a “moderate,” and who has vowed that not one Jew would live in a Palestinian state.
“Fatah brags it killed 11,000 Israelis”, by Itamar Marcus, Palestinian Media Watch, August 3, 2016:
Fatah yesterday posted a list of Fatah’s achievements on behalf of Palestinians. Significantly, Fatah did not cite even one peace-seeking or peace-promoting achievement, but only listed Fatah acts of violence and terror. Fatah even boasted that its attacks have killed 11,000 Israelis. While Fatah and the PLO have been killing Israelis since 1965, this number is a gross exaggeration.
One of the acts it bragged about was being the “first Palestinian faction to reach the [Israeli] nuclear reactor.” This is a reference to Fatah’s bus hijacking and murder of three Israeli civilians on their way to work at the Dimona nuclear plant in 1988.
Throughout the recent terror wave, Palestinian Media Watch has documented that the PA and Fatah have promoted violence and terror against Israelis, both in Israel and in the West Bank.
The following is yesterday’s Fatah post celebrating and bragging about Fatah’s murder of Israeli civilians:
“To those who argue [with Fatah], to the boors, and to those who do not know history:
Fatah has killed 11,000 Israelis
Fatah has sacrificed 170,000 Martyrs (Shahids)…
Fatah was the first to carry out operations (i.e., terror attacks) during the first Intifada (i.e., Palestinian violence and terror against Israel, 1988-1993), and it was the first Palestinian faction to reach the nuclear reactor in Dimona (i.e., 1988 murder of 3 working mothers on way to the Dimona plant)
Fatah was the first to fight in the second Intifada (i.e., PA terror campaign 2000-2005) (Baha Al-Sa’id, an officer in the Preventive Security Forces, infiltrated an Israeli settlement on the border with Gaza) [parenthesis in source]…
Fatah was the first to defeat the Zionist enemy (Battle of El-Karameh) [parenthesis in source]…
Fatah led the Palestinian attack on Israel in the UN.”
