Mahmoud Abbas has made many trips around the world over the years. I have never seen a crowd greet him upon his return, let alone with the enthusiasm that he received upon returning from his trip to Germany on Thursday.

What makes this trip different? 

It was Abbas' antisemitic statement that Palestinians have gone through "50 holocausts" from Israel. The rally was to show support as the world condemned him.

The official Palestinian Wafa news agency reports (Arabic version only):

Our Palestinian people received President Mahmoud Abbas, this evening, Thursday, with a huge and solemn reception, as the Palestinian masses turned around on the outskirts of the road the president passed through near the northern entrance to the city of Al-Bireh, returning from an official visit to Germany, to confirm his positions which was confirmed on his trip, which reflects the aspirations and dreams of our people .

This reception came after popular public calls to receive the president, and the emphasis on our people's support for his statements and political stances .

Those lining the road carried pictures of the president with the words, "You are not alone, Mr. President."

The Secretary of the Revolutionary Council of the Fatah movement, Majid Al-Fatiani, said that this reception is a stand of loyalty to Abu  Mazen, who carried the message of the Palestinian people, their concerns and history with all boldness and courage, armed with the will of the people and the Palestinian national memory, which is still full of Zionist criminality.

He continued, "Why are the Israelis angry? Were we accomplices in their massacres? Rather, they were the ones who drowned us in our blood in dozens of massacres over 74 years."

He added, "The president told the truth and confronted the world with it..."

In turn, the Secretary of the Fatah movement in Ramallah, Muwaffaq Sahweil, said that the rally came to confirm that everything the president stated in his speech, statements and positions represent the Palestinian people.

This was no spontaneous demonstration, but one organized by Mahmoud Abbas' own Fatah party, as every speaker was from Fatah. 

Which shows that his "apology" wasn't an apology. Abbas is a wily politician and he knows that his antisemitism is a political asset among his people.

What he said in Germany wasn't a dog whistle to extremist Palestinians - it was a bullhorn to mainstream Palestinians, who have the highest rate of antisemitism in the world. His political party isn't even pretending that his words were embarrassing or offensive. Jew-hate is a feature, not a bug, of the "moderate" Palestinians.

That is a much bigger story than Abbas' repeated and consistent antisemitism over the decades. Even when Abbas leaves the scene, the Jew-hate of the Palestinians will remain, and no one is doing anything about it.  

This is the most under-reported story in the Middle East.
