Abbas Calls Israeli Defense Against Gaza Rocket Attacks ‘Cold Blooded Murder’

Mahmoud Abbas, President of the State of Palestine

By Rob Miller – The Times of Israel:

Yesterday, when British PM David Cameron met with Israeli leader Benyamin Netanyahu in the midst of massive rocket and mortar attacks from Gaza by Hamas and Islamic Jihad, Cameron condemned the attacks as ‘barbaric’, saying that “these attacks are completely indiscriminate, aimed at civilian populations and that is a demonstration of how barbaric they are.”

To which Netanyahu replied, “You are going to visit President Abbas shortly, He has not condemned the firing of rockets on our citizens. How can you not condemn the firing of rockets on innocent civilians? He did, however, condemn Israel for responding and shooting three terrorists who fired mortars at us. That he did condemn.”

Today, after meeting with Cameron, Palestine’s unelected dictator was obviously prodded to say something. And he did. He condemned ‘all military escalation, including rockets’ to make sure that Israel’s self defense against his Hamas friends was included in the ‘condemnation’. And then he went on to rant about how Israel killing three members of that Islamic Jihad mortar team firing rounds into Israel was ‘cold blooded murder’, repeating his earlier nonsense.

Cameron, of course, has absolutely nothing to say about that, at least publicly. But this should be a teachable moment for him and the rest of those who call the establishment of a Fatah -ruled reichlet in Judea and Samaria ‘vital for world peace.’

Abbas, styled by people like PM Cameron and President Obama as a moderate and peace partner for Israel is essentially saying that Israel has no right of self-defense. So why would he bother to abide by any peace agreement or stop terrorists from Islamic Jihad, the al-Aksa Martyr’s Brigade, Hamas or others from attacking Israel as ‘national resistance’? Or the next Abbas, who might very well come from Hamas?

Nothing, of course. Just words on a peace of paper that will mean nothing the minute their integrity is tested.

Just like with Oslo, the warning signs are flashing, and they’re in plain sight.


About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
