The Palestinian Authority (PA)’s ruling Fatah movement exploited the Paris terror attack to spout its own agenda, Palestinian Media Watch reported Sunday, equating Israel with Islamic State (ISIS).
Fatah implied that Israel is the equivalent of Islamic State by showing the Palestinian flag next to the flags of Russia, Lebanon and France in a Facebook post.
The flags refer to recent ISIS terror attacks that took place in and against these countries: the explosion on a Russian plane in Egypt that killed everyone on board, in total 224 (Oct. 31, 2015), a double suicide bombing in Beirut, Lebanon, that killed at least 41 and wounded over 200 (Nov. 12, 2015), and the attacks in Paris, France, which killed 129 and wounded over 300 in several simultaneous shooting and suicide bombing attacks (Nov. 13, 2015).
“Terror is terror and we condemn all terror,” Fatah said, in a post dated Saturday. “Be it destroying houses in Nablus (Shechem – ed.) and killing our children by Israel or hitting a Russian plane over Egypt. The Paris attacks are criminal acts done by coward terrorists.”
In addition, an Op/Ed in the official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, claimed that the Mossad – Israel’s intelligence service – orchestrated the Paris attacks, claiming that it was a hit designed to cripple Europe for deciding to label goods made in Judea, Samaria, Jerusalem, and the Golan Heights.
The author added that Israel is the one benefiting from these attacks and that they serve the “goals” of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, who “hides in his soul enough evil to burn the world.”
Several PA officials also intimated Israel as being behind the attacks, including Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC) member Bassam Abu Sharif, Dr. Jamal Nazzal, spokesman of Fatah in Europe, and the spokesman for the PA National Security Forces, Adnan Damiri.
