The PA (again) orchestrates terrorism and then blames Israel and the US

The formerly Palestinian Post continues its blatant disinformation campaign of months by now claiming that violent responses to Trump’s peace plan should have been expected. It further rationalized that a muted Palestinian response to it “paved way for lone-wolf attacks” and that “the writing was on the wall.” Yeah, on the Facebook wall, that is.

Do they really want anyone to believe that these terrorist attacks, one after the other, all within 24 hours, were coincidental and spontaneous?

Of course not. In an official statement, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas blamed the U.S.’s “Deal of the Century” peace plan for being “a source of tension” and for “the ongoing escalation in the West Bank and the two terrorist attacks that took place in Jerusalem.”

He clarified that he had warned about this. “We have made it clear that [this] will lead in the end to the escalation we see today.”

Truth is that tensions, escalations, and attacks didn’t occur in a vacuum, spontaneously at all. Abbas did not warn nor did he predict. Rather, he notified the public that terrorist attacks would be welcome (acceptable, understandable, justified) now. He gave the green light to it.

In fact, Fatah official Tawfiq Tirawi, former head of the Palestinian Authority’s security services, also called on Palestinian police not to notify Israel about any terrorists or planned terror acts, just three days ago. This all in broad daylight.

Bassam Abu Sharif, who served as an adviser to Yasser Arafat, said Palestinians should carry out “defensive attacks” in Tel Aviv and Sderot in a February 2 interview on Al-Manar TV.

Furthermore, an animated video portraying several real-life Palestinian terror attacks against Israelis was found TikTok, the video-sharing social networking app popular with children. It seems to glorify the murder of Jews (viewer discretion is advised).

Instead of condemning this bloodlust, Abbas called for and justified it.

Kushner says so. I just gave the proofs.

And now, former PM Ehud Olmert wants to meet with Abbas to jointly condemn Israel and the US. What a self-hatred, to overlook antisemitic terrorism. Throw him in jail and throw away the key. How much should a Jewish democracy overlook treason and abetting antisemitism?

About the Author
MM is a prolific and creative writer and thinker, a daily blog contributor to the TOI. He is a fetal survivor of the pharmaceutical industry (, born in 1953 to two Dutch survivors who met in the largest concentration camp in the Netherlands, Westerbork, and holds a BA in medicine (University of Amsterdam). He taught Re-evaluation Co-counseling, became a social activist, became religious, made Aliyah, and raised three wonderful kids. He wrote an unpublished tome about Jewish Free Will. He's a strict vegan since 2008. He's an Orthodox Jew but not a rabbi. * His most influential teachers (chronologically) are: his parents, Nico (natan) van Zuiden and Betty (beisye) Nieweg, Wim Kan, Mozart, Harvey Jackins, Marshal Rosenberg, Reb Shlomo Carlebach and lehavdiel bein chayim lechayim: Rabbi Dr. Natan Lopes Cardozo, Rav Zev Leff and Rav Meir Lubin. * Previously, for decades, he was known to the Jerusalem Post readers as a frequent letter writer. For a couple of years he wrote hasbara for the Dutch public. His fields of attention now are varied: Psychology (including Sexuality and Abuse), Medicine (including physical immortality), Science (statistics), Politics (Israel, the US and the Netherlands, Activism - more than leftwing or rightwing, he hopes to highlight Truth), Oppression and Liberation (intersectionally, for young people, the elderly, non-Whites, women, workers, Jews, GLBTQAI, foreigners and anyone else who's dehumanized or exploited), Integrity, Philosophy, Jews (Judaism, Zionism, Holocaust and Jewish Liberation), Ecology and Veganism. Sometimes he's misunderstood because he has such a wide vision that never fits any specialist's box. But that's exactly what many love about him. Many of his posts relate to affairs from the news or the Torah Portion of the Week or are new insights that suddenly befell him. * He hopes that his words will inspire and inform, reassure the doubters but make the self-assured doubt more. He strives to bring a fresh perspective rather than bore you with the obvious. He doesn't expect his readers to agree. Rather, original minds must be disputed. In short, his main political positions are: anti-Trumpism, for Zionism, Intersectionality, non-violence, democracy, anti the fake peace process, for original-Orthodoxy, Science, Free Will, anti blaming-the-victim and for down-to-earth optimism. Read his blog how he attempts to bridge any discrepancies. He admits sometimes exaggerating to make a point, which could have him come across as nasty, while in actuality, he's quit a lovely person to interact with. He holds - how Dutch - that a strong opinion doesn't imply intolerance of other views. * His writing has been made possible by an allowance for second generation Holocaust survivors from the Netherlands. It has been his dream since he was 38 to try to make a difference by teaching through writing. He had three times 9-out-of-10 for Dutch at his high school finals but is spending his days communicating in English and Hebrew - how ironic. G-d must have a fine sense of humor. In case you wonder - yes, he is a bit dyslectic. November 13, 2018, he published his 500st blog post with the ToI. If you're a native English speaker and wonder why you should read from people whose English is only their second language, consider the advantage of having a peek outside of your cultural bubble. * NEW: To see other blog posts by him, his overspill blog you can reach by clicking on the Website icon next to his picture at the head of every post. There you may find precursors to later TOI blog posts, addition or corrections of published TOI blog posts, blog posts the TOI will not carry and some thoughts that are too short to be a TOI blog post. Also, the TOI only allows for one blog post per blogger per 24 hours. Sometimes, he has more to say than that. * To send any personal reaction to him, scroll to the top of the blog post and click Contact Me.
