  • Elder of Ziyon


When is any reporter (besides Khaled Abu Toameh) going to mention that Mahmoud Abbas is delusional?

Here is the English press release from the Palestinian Authority news agency on Abbas' speech last night. It is simply insane.

President Mahmoud Abbas accused Hamas at the start of the leadership meeting in Ramallah on Monday of being responsible for the assassination attempt against Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah and chief of intelligence Majid Faraj in Gaza last week, saying that he decided to take national, legal and financial measures to punish Hamas for its act.
Hamas has nothing at all to gain from assassinating Hamdallah. Almost certainly it was one of the other terror groups responsible for the attack.
President Abbas said he does not want to punish the Palestinian people, but he has to take action against Hamas, which rules Gaza and refuses to allow the Palestinian government to rule there.
"I have decided to take national, legal and financial measures to protect out national project," said the president. "We never thought of punishing any Palestinian citizen, not in the West Bank or Gaza. But we have to say where the wrong is and where the crime is. This situation is not acceptable."
When Abbas threatens to punish Hamas, he means to punish Gaza. Which means he is threatening to accelerate the inhumane things he did to Gazans over the past year - reduce electricity, food, fuel, medicine, salaries, social services. Hey, no "human rights" NGOs criticized him for what he did so far, and everyone blames Israel anyway, so there is no downside.
He accused Hamas of sabotaging all efforts for reconciliation, saying that either the Palestinian government takes full charge of everything in Gaza, or the de facto authority remains fully responsible for it.

He said he will not wait for Hamas' investigation into the assassination attempt "because we know that they, Hamas, are behind it," adding that assassinations are not new to Hamas, whose history is full of similar acts, warning that the attempt will not go without reaction.
Interestingly, Abbas brought down examples from Islamist Palestinian arabs in the 1930s and 1940s who killed other Arabs as proof.
Abbas said Hamas and US President Donald Trump are cooperating in destroying the Palestinian national project of independence because they want a state in Gaza.
Ah, yes, that pro-Hamas President Trump.

The funny thing is that J-Street and the loony Left will probably agree with this, since any accusation against Trump is assumed to be true.

He said the US supports the separation between the West Bank and Gaza because it does not want a Palestinian state. He said Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital and cut aid to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees, UNRWA, aim at destroying Palestinian aspirations for independence and statehood.
Obviously. Because a strong, independent state must allow many of its citizens to be in a separate social service program, have their kids educated in a separate school system, and allow them to live in separate areas with different rules and the inability to fully participate in national politics.

Abbas is delusional. He always has been. The amount of criticism of him in the West is minuscule compared to how insane his words are. And the only explanation for this is because the West is committed to the meme of blaming Israel for everything, first and foremost, in any story.
