  • Elder of Ziyon

Yesterday, Mahmoud Abbas marked Armenian Christmas yesterday with another speech that, if delivered by any other prominent leader, would be mercilessly denounced by the media and world governments.

From the official translation by Wafa news agency:
We, Palestinians, have gone through similar experiences with the Armenians; both of us have been repressed, terrorized and banished. As the Armenian people emigrated from their country to ours and then to another place, we are experiencing the same struggle; we emigrated in the 1948 and the refugees in Syria are migrating to the sea, into exile and to places only God knows about.

...We continue to suffer a lot because of the daily killing and slaughter; we are against murder and spelling the blood of any human being, regardless of the gender, race or religion. We value every drop of blood that comes out of any human being.

Therefore we tell our brothers and our families that we are in a state of despair and hopelessness. We realize the doors remain unlocked and the Israeli leadership is trying to shut open doors, but our resistance shall always remain peaceful and we shall not call for anything other than that. Every day we lose three or four martyrs without a single reason or justification, but we will remain patient and stand fast on our land.

Well, he has one thing right: Palestinians do value every drop of blood that comes out of Jews who are murdered - as this poster celebrating the murder of Dafna Meir shows.

Abbas definitely values Palestinian blood as well. After all, he is the one who said in September, “We welcome every drop of blood spilled in Jerusalem. This is pure blood, clean blood, blood on its way to Allah. With the help of Allah, every martyr will be in heaven, and every wounded will get his reward.”
This is how much Abbas values blood.

Moreover, to compare Palestinian suffering to the Armenian genocide is reprehensible.

Here was another section of Abbas' speech that shows hypocrisy of the highest order:

When some individuals say it is imperative to get rid of the Christians and especially Armenians, we tell them to eat their hearts out, because Armenians will always remain in Jerusalem, Ramallah and Bethlehem. Christians will always be the salt of this earth and will remain on their land and in their country. Whoever wants them to leave must do that instead.
Does that same logic apply to those who say it is imperative to get rid of the Jews?

Bizarrely, The Jerusalem Post and i24News reported on this speech as if the main point was that Abbas was condemning the murder of Dafna Meir. He didn't mention her and didn't reference the attack. Apparently, even the Israeli media is so beholden to the idea of Abbas as a "moderate" that they hear what they want to hear and become deaf to anything that shows the opposite.

What will it take for the world to wake up to Abbas' outrageous immorality? His words are clear, but no one wants to listen.

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
