BNI reported on how Abbas as well as Egypt’s Mubarak and the Saudis all prodded Israel into attacking Hamas. Of course that was pretty much ignored by the media.

The Palestinian Authority on Sunday demanded a public apology from one of the most prominent Islamic scholars, who called for stoning President Mahmoud Abbas to death. Egyptian scholar Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi said that if it is proven that Abbas had instigated Operation Cast Leadagainst the Gaza Strip, he must be stoned.
“During the debate raised over the UN’s Goldstone Report that accused Israel of war crimes against Gaza, there were reports that Abbas encouraged Israel to launch its attack,” Qaradawi said in a Friday khutba (sermon) at the Omar bin al-Khattab mosque in Doha, Qatar.
“There also were reports that he foiled a vote on the report by the UN Human Rights Council,” he said, calling on the Arab League to investigate the matter. “If it is proven that Abbas instigated the Israeli war against Gaza, he deserves to be publicly stoned in Mecca because this would be a betrayal on his part,” he added.
