“One shot will disrupt the ceremony and one dead body will cancel the ceremony,” claimed an op-ed in the Palestinian Authority’s Al-Hayat Al-Jadida daily.
UnitedwithIsrael As over 40 world leaders gather in Jerusalem this week to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz at an event entitled “Remembering the Holocaust: Fighting Antisemitism,” the Palestinian Authority (PA) wants to disrupt the ceremony.
The official PA daily published an op-ed yesterday literally calling for murder in order to ruin the ceremony: “One shot will disrupt the ceremony and one dead body will cancel the ceremony,” read one of the more disturbing lines in the article, which was published in Al-Hayat Al-Jadida.
Before calling for murder, regular PA daily columnist Yahya Rabah criticized the international community for recognizing that the “Jews’ Holocaust is terrible” while accepting as “insignificant, beautiful, [and] spectacular” what he called the “Palestinian holocaust by Israel that still continues.”
Rabah warned, “It can be assumed that they [Palestinians] will resist the ceremony being held in Jerusalem itself, as Jerusalem is theirs.” His suggested solution to stop the international ceremony from taking place: murder.
In this instance, the call for murder was followed by: “[D]espite the misery of the Arabs and their dissatisfaction with what is happening, they are capable, if even for just a moment, of not following in the steps of Israel and America who are determining for them who their enemies are and who their friends are.”
