Convicted terrorist Marwan Barghouti, who was sentenced in 2004 to five consecutive life sentences, was not only given valuable real estate in Sunday’s New York Times to publish an op-ed trashing the state of Israel, he was originally identified to readers only as a “Palestinian leader and parliamentarian.” Nowhere were readers informed of Barghouti’s monstrous crimes.
When Fatah-run Awdah TV asked Palestinians about their views regarding US President Donald Trump’s “rise to power”, one woman explained that “Jews” mistakenly understand the term “the Promised Land” as “a promise to them,” however, the real promise is that Allah will “gather” and “exterminate” them.
No surprise here. What is surprising is President Trump’s meeting with terror leader Mahmoud Abbas and the two-state lethal fantasy. There is a disconnect between reality and wishful thinking.
Mahmoud Abbas is the leader of Fatah. He co-founded Fatah with the godfather of modern terror, Yaser Arafat. After Yaser Arafat’s death from AIDs, Abbas continued to jihad against the Jewish state.
