Moderate Palestinians glorify terrorism, continue incitement

http://zionism-israel.com/israel_news/2010/01/moderate-palestinians-glorify-terroris.html

Was this item in your local newspaper, next to descriptions of the "moderate" government of "moderate' Mahmoud Abbas, and the "ultranationalist" "right wing" Israeli leadership? Did they explain that the moderate Abbas immoderately praised the moderate terrorist Dalal Mughrabi? Did they note that the moderate Fateh is still calling for immoderate armed "resistance" (blowing people up)?

What would your local media have to say if the Israeli government declared Baruch Goldstein (the murderer of Palestinians) to be a national martyr? Do you think such an event would go unnoticed? What would they say, and do they say, when the least rabbi in the West Bank makes a statement saying that in theory, it is permitted to kill Arabs?? So why do they ignore Palestinian incitement, by the US funded and backed Palestinian Authority? Are your tax dollars doing their job? Don't you want to know about it?

If these items were not carried by your local media, ask them why, please. Find out if it is because inept Israeli public relations, or perhaps there is another reason. We are all very interested to know.

Behind the Headlines: Palestinian incitement distances peace
Despite Israel's efforts to encourage the Palestinian Authority leadership to return to the peace talks, the PA continues to boycott negotiations and to incite against Israel and praise terrorists.

Text of banner in Arabic reads: "Under the auspices of President Mahmoud Abbas - The Political and National Education Authority - Ceremony on the anniversary of the birth of the bride of the cosmos - The Shahida (Martyr) Dalal Mughrabi" (Photo: Palwatch.org)

Despite Israel's numerous efforts to encourage the Palestinian Authority (PA) leadership to return to the peace talks, the PA continues to boycott negotiations and to incite against Israel and praise terrorists.
Among the incidents that indicate an upsurge in incitement in the past month, are the official sponsorship of the naming of a Ramallah square after a terrorist who slaughtered 37 Israelis and the glorification of the murderers of the late Rabbi Meir Avshalom Chai, killed on 24 December 2009 in a drive-by shooting.
This incitement is occurring despite the fact that the current Israeli government, like previous governments, has made great efforts to advance peace. Time after time, it has declared its commitment to peace and its willingness to make the necessary compromises to reach that goal. It has also undertaken numerous acts, such as a moratorium on settlement housing construction, that tangibly demonstrate its commitment to negotiations while improving the lives of Palestinians living under the control of the Palestinian Authority. Additionally, like all Israeli governments, it invests a great deal of effort into educating for peace.
The requirement for the Palestinians to end incitement has constituted one of the core foundations of the peace process since its inception. The need to end incitement stems from the recognition that true peace cannot be achieved as long as the propagation of hate continues. As Prime Minister Netanyahu noted (10 January): "Peace is made by educating towards reconciliation, by encouraging good neighborly relations and by developing mutual respect."
Incitement not only pushes peace farther away, it also jeopardizes Israel's security. Words can be dangerous. Hero-worship of terrorists and their despicable acts - which has transpired not only in the past but in recent days - inspires further violence.
Anti-Israeli incitement, including by the highest-ranking Palestinian officials, also persists in official Palestinian media outlets and in the educational system.
The last week of 2009 provides a regrettable sample of Palestinian official incitement. In one short week, incitement increased, terror attacks were carried out both inside and outside the pre-'67 lines, and condemnation of the terrorist attacks by the PA was conspicuously absent.
Following is a short summary of the most egregious events of the last week of December 2009:
• Veneration of a mass-murdering Palestinian terrorist:
On 29 December, PA President Mahmoud Abbas funded and sponsored a ceremony celebrating the memory of Dalal al-Maghrabi. She was the terrorist responsible for the Coastal Road massacre in 1978 in which 37 Israelis were murdered within the pre-67 "Green Line". During the ceremony - one of many held in her honor - dignitaries sang her praises and children marched in honor of this murderer's 50th birthday. For quite some time, the PA has strived to turn this female terrorist into a role model for young Palestinian children. Indeed, two high schools for girls, a computer center, children's summer camps and a square in the Ramallah area have all been named for her.
• Expressions of support for the murderers of Rabbi Chai:
On 24 December, Rabbi Meir Avshalom Chai was shot to death while driving in his car. Even though members of the PLO's own Fatah faction took responsibility for the shooting attack, PA officials saw no reason to denounce the attack or even to express their condolences to his wife and seven children. Incredibly, PA President Abbas sent a representative to pay his condolences to the families of the terrorists (who were subsequently killed while resisting arrest) and to declare them shahids (holy martyrs). Abbas even had letters sent to their families on his behalf to console them and praise the murder these terrorists carried out.
In a further outrageous act, the Prime Minister of the Palestinian Authority, Salam Fayyad personally visited the families of the terrorists, accompanied by a delegation of dignitaries which included PA government ministers and the Chief of the Palestinian Police, all the while condemning Israel's attempt to apprehend the terrorists.
• Fatah calls for armed "resistance" over peace negotiations:
Fatah, which is headed by President Abbas, issued a statement on its official website following the Rabbi Chai murder which called for the continuance of the "armed struggle" by Fatah and all the other factions. It declared "resistance," and not negotiations, "as the primary option for liberating Palestinian lands from the filth of the children of Zion [Jews]." This announcement, and others like it, receive the support of the leaders of the movement, including members of the Palestinian Authority leadership.
The continuation of incitement by the PA leadership constitutes a serious violation of the Palestinians' international obligations and calls into question their commitment to peace. It is manifestly clear to all parties interested in promoting peace in the region that the cessation of incitement is an essential condition for achieving a genuine peace between Israelis and Palestinians. Israel calls upon the Palestinian leadership to stop the incitement and to return to the negotiating table.
