Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper personally intervened to pressure Muslim Terrorists (“palestinian” Authority, PLO) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas to drop his bid for upgraded status at the United Nations.
Harper, who had been in New York to accept an award and attend the opening of a new session of the United Nations at the end of September, had “a short, brusque meeting with [“palestinian” Authority President Mahmoud] Abbas,” the Globe and Mail newspaper reported.
The Rt. Hon. Stephen Harper, PC, MP Prime Minister of Canada Israel’s 60th anniversary
“Unfortunately, Israel at 60 remains a country under threat, threatened by groups and regimes who deny, to this very day, its right to exist. And why? Make no mistake. Look beyond the thinly veiled rationalizations – because they hate Israel, just as much as they hate the Jewish people. Our government believes that those who threaten Israel also threaten Canada,
JDL supports and deeply appreciates the principled decisions of the Right Honourable Stephen Harper and the Conservative Government.
Mahmoud Abbas: Terrorist
Abu Nasser, a senior leader of the Al Aqsa Brigades in the West Bank, rejoiced in Wultz’s death. Abu Nasser is part of the Brigades leadership in the Balata refugee camp suspected of plotting the attack.
“This is a gift from Allah. We wish this young dog will go directly with no transit to hell,” Abu Nasser said.
Terror group Islamic Jihad commented on the idea that they might try to assassinate Abbas:
“There is no difference between us and President Mahmoud Abbas that would make anybody even think of throwing a stone on him,” said Khaled al-Batsh, an Islamic Jihad leader in Gaza.
His pals at Al-Aqsa also threatened Europe and America for withholding their welfare checks:
“We won’t remain idle in the face of the siege imposed on the “palestinian” people by Israel, the US and other countries,” said a leaflet issued by the Aksa Martyrs Brigades in the Gaza Strip. “We will strike at the economic and civilian interests of these countries, here and abroad.”
At a Naqba celebration, Abbas said:
“Our first priority is to lift the economic and political siege, then to end the occupation of our land once and for all, and to establish our independent “palestinian” state.”
Any question as to which land he is referring to? The Fatah logo answers that nicely:
Also notice the priorities: the state is the last of his list, even though he could declare an independent state today.
Of course, we cannot forget that Abbas was one of the first Arabs to jump on the Holocaust-denial bandwagon, back in 1983:
In 1983, in an early public example of denial from an indigenous Middle Eastern source, a “palestinian” named Mahmoud Abbas (also known as Abu Mazen) wrote The Other Side: The Secret Relationship between Nazism and the Zionist Movement. In the book, Abbas suggested that the six million figure was “peddled” by the Jews but that in fact “the Jewish victims may number six million or be far fewer, even fewer than one million.” In 1995, reports of the book’s existence reached the Western press, largely because of the public prominence that Abbas had attained as the chief PLO architect of the Oslo peace accords and cosigner of the 1993 Declaration of Principles in Washington. The California-based Simon Wiesenthal Center publicly called for Abbas to clarify his position on the Holocaust, but no clear statement was forthcoming. In an interview with the Israeli newspaper Ma’ariv, Abbas tried to frame the issue in terms of realpolitik. “When I wrote The Other Side…we were at war with Israel,” Abbas said. “Today I would not have made such remarks…Today there is peace and what I write from now on must help advance the peace process.”
In other words, my words do not necessarily reflect my reality.
Abbas is also less than forthcoming as he circles the globe trying to extort money from Western governments, money that history has shown goes towards terror – either by paying PA “policemen” who moonlight as terrorists, or by freeing up money for terror, or that is laundered through UN agencies and NGOs towards terror.
Contacts with solid information – all speaking off the record – describe the current PA fiscal crisis as political or “artificial” in nature. There are other PLO holdings – of considerable magnitude – Abbas would be able to draw upon.
So while Abbas may not brandish a gun like his predecessor, and while he may wear suits, his goals and methods are indistinguishable from Arafat, the godfather of modern terror. And an Abbas-led PA is no more peaceful in its goals than Hamas. Anyone who tries to prop up Abbas is acting according to the terror playbook, and a West panicked by Hamas needs to remember that the alternative is no more peaceful and considerably less honest.
