Senior PA Officials Condemn Itamar Murder while Blaming Israel for Palestinian Hostility

Following the March 11 attack on the Fogel family in the Israeli settlement of Itamar, in which the parents and three children, including a four-month-old infant, were killed, PA officials condemned the attack while stressing their opposition to all violence, including violence against Palestinians. Some also raised questions about the identity of the murderers, hinting that they may not have been Palestinian. Fatah officials and columnists in the PA dailies denounced the murder of the children with unprecedented harshness, stressing the depravity of the act, but also blamed the settlers for instigating Palestinian hostility against them, and noted that Israel also killed children.

Blamimg the victims is the Pali modus operandi.

Meanwhile, I posted a few days ago about a Facebook website calling for the 3rd Intifada:

The numbers have grown from 40,000 to 163,819 in just a few days, and flagging appears to be ignored. A source told me that some IDF soldiers had clicked on a link that resulted in the 3rd Intifada page being posted on their wall. Were they targeted? Presumably so.

Please flag the page again: Palestinian.Intifada. They are definitely trying to incite more violence against Israel. Apparently, Jewish children being brutally murdered doesn't bother them ... Islam's useful idiots at their finest.

Meanwhile, Israel has launched an Index of Palestinian Authority Incitement. Way past due as far as I am concerned.

Incitement against Israel, which frequently turns into genuine anti-Semitic incitement, is an inseparable part of the fabric of life in the Palestinian Authority. Thus, anti-Israeli and anti-Semitic messages are regularly heard in both the private and official media and in mosque sermons, and are studied in school textbooks.

Terrorists are given an honored status and become models for emulation in Palestinian society, both in the media and via ceremonies held by institutions affiliated with the PA.

Institutionalized and systematic incitement against Israel has never ceased in the PA,even during the height of the diplomatic process in the 1990s.

Examples from Recent Months

On 9.3.11, Abu Mazen's advisor Sabri Saidam, delivered a speech in which he emphasized that Palestinian weapons must be turned towards Israel. He demanded that the Palestinian people be attentive to the living conditions of martyrs' families and said that the anniversary of the death of Dalal Mughrabi (one of the perpetrators of 1978 coastal highway massacre) should be marked by inaugurating a square in her name in the city of El-Bireh.

On 6.3.11, the PA's official newspaper, Al Hayat Al-Jadida, published an item to the effect that the management of a youth club in Ramallah planned to hold a soccer tournament in memory of Wafa Idris, a suicide bomber.[More..]

An excellent who's who of those behind the "Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions [BDS] against Israel at NGO Monitor's BDS Sewer System. The Facebook page above is part of this.

UPDATE via Aaron Klein in Israel:

JERUSALEM Two members of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas' official security forces were arrested in conjunction with this past weekend's bloody massacre in which five family members were brutally stabbed to death inside their home in the Jewish village of Itamar, WND has learned.

The names of the apprehended suspects will be released to the Israeli media within hours but were revealed to WND by security officials working on the murder.

Two cousins are now in Israeli custody and are suspected in the slayings. Ahmed Awad is an officer in Abbas' Preventative Security Services in the northern West Bank city of Nablis. Iyad Awad is an officer in Abbas' General Intelligence services in Ramallah[ More....]

Wow, just wow.
