Palestine Today lists the so-called "technocrats" who are proposed as ministers for the unified Fatah-Hamas terror government.

The person earmarked to be the Religious Affairs minister is Sheikh Yusuf Salama, a preacher at the Al Aqsa mosque.

Here is what he wrote about Jews in a 2010 article:
[We must] expose the Jews and their nature, and this is the duty of the nation's scholars and opinion leaders ...relying on the Holy Quran and the Sunnah, [which have the most] detailed description of the Jews, then the history books and the writings of contemporaries with them - Muslims and non-Muslims - written in Arabic or other languages ​​such as book by French Muslim philosopher Roger Garaudy [a well-known Holocaust denier - EoZ] It is contemporary reality, ...Their most prominent qualities are racist. They see themselves as God's chosen people, and their aspirations are for an expansionist Greater Israel from the Nile to the Euphrates are not limited to that, but they want to control the whole world.

There will of course be a global uproar at the very idea that the PA government would have such an antisemite as a minister. Jodi Rudoren will have an above-the-fold feature in the New York Times about this. President Obama, who recently received an award for his role in fighting antisemitism, will publicly call for Salama's removal. Ken Roth of Human Rights Watch will write an op-ed about how it is unacceptable for a government to incite such hate. Palestinian NGOs like Miftah will call for the PA to drop Salama immediately. Mondoweiss and Ali Abunimah and Max Blumenthal and Juan Cole will be writing outraged blog posts about this.

Because all of these people and organizations solemnly insist that antisemitism has no place in today's world, and they all claim that they are against wanton Jew-hatred.

Certainly if a Jewish minister in Israel would say such bigoted things about Arabs in private and it was leaked, all these people and organizations would make a huge deal over it and force him or her out of office in disgrace. The idea of a minister of a government publicly holding such views is certainly anathema and will cause a worldwide uproar.

It's not like all these people are hypocrites, right? It cannot be that they believe that some antisemitism, from, say, Arabs, is acceptable and no big deal. They are all people of principle, who publicly disavow any vestige of Jew-hatred.

All we have to do is sit back and wait for the avalanche of criticism to materialize. The upcoming uproar will make the Donald Sterling story seem like nothing in comparison, since - objectively speaking - Sheikh Salama is much, much worse.

The outrage will begin any minute now.
