Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ ‘political’ party Fatah, finds honor in boasting they murdered 11,000 Israelis, sacrificed 170,000 ‘martyrs’, when they know their numbers are outrageously unrealistic.
By Hillel Fendel
In honor of an unknown milestone, Fatah yesterday posted a list of its achievements on behalf of the Arabs living in the Palestinian Authority-controlled areas. The Palestinian Media Watch organization reports that Fatah did not cite even one peace-seeking or peace-promoting achievement, and instead listed only its acts of violence and terror.
Fatah even boasted that its attacks have killed 11,000 Israelis. While Fatah and the PLO have been murdering Israelis since 1965, this number is nowhere near the truth.
To be precise, the Jewish Virtual Library documents that 3,743 Jews have been murdered in terrorist attacks since 1920. This number does not include battle and war fatalities.
Fatah began its murderous attacks in 1965 – significantly, two years before Israel liberated Judea, Samaria, and Gaza – the areas now claimed the PLO for a Palestinian state. Between then and today, Fatah and its Palestinian terrorist allies have murdered 2,554 people in Israel.
PMW’s translation of yesterday’s Fatah Facebook post is as follows:
To those who argue [with Fatah], to the boors, and to those who do not know history:
Fatah has killed 11,000 Israelis
Fatah has sacrificed 170,000 Martyrs (Shahids)…
Fatah was the first to carry out operations [terror attacks] during the first Intifada (1988-1993), and it was the first Palestinian faction to reach the nuclear reactor in Dimona [the 1988 murder of three working mothers on their way to the Dimona plant]
Fatah was the first to fight in the second Intifada (2000-2005) (Baha Al-Sa’id, an officer in the Preventive Security Forces, infiltrated an Israeli settlement on the border with Gaza) [parenthesis in source]…
Fatah was the first to defeat the Zionist enemy (Battle of El-Karameh) [parenthesis in source]…
Fatah led the Palestinian attack on Israel in the UN.
The Battle of El-Karameh took place in Jordan in 1968, when Israeli forces attacked a village from Fatah terrorists had been using as a base for launching attacks against Israel. The Gaza attack referred to took place in Kfar Darom in November 2000; IDF soldiers Snir Flum and Sharon Shitoubi were killed, and Shitoubi shot the terrorist, who later died of his wounds.
