ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The Palestinian Authority has frequently violated both the spirit and the letter of the Oslo Accords, which were supposed to bring peace to the Israelis and the Palestinians. The latest is the Facebook page of the official spokesman of the PA Security Forces, Adnan al-Damiri. He posted a message on Dec. 21, 2015, from the Fatah Shabiba youth movement to Palestinian children, saying that the way to succeed in “revolution” against Israel is to “water it with blood.” Clearly, the intent here was not a peaceful one, and unfortunately it postpones the arrival of real peace.

Perhaps even worse, last October Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas declared, “We welcome every drop of blood spilled in Jerusalem … With the help of Allah, every shaheed [martyr] will be in heaven, and every wounded will get his reward.” On Dec. 14, 2015, Mr. Abbas called the wave of violence a “justified popular uprising.” That same day a new poll was released showing that two-thirds of Palestinians supported the stabbing attacks.

This shows that the ongoing anti-Israel propaganda continues to poison the minds of the majority of the Palestinian people.
