T. Belman. Hollande insults Bibi and honours Abbas.
Nothing shows the West’s lack of seriousness about terrorism more than the shameful presence of Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas at the mass demo in Paris. If the Charlie Hebdo massacre had taken place in Israel, Abbas would have named a square after the killers
What on Earth was Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas doing at Sunday’s mass demonstration in Paris against terrorism in general and the twin massacres by Islamists of the Charlie Hebdo journalists and the Jews at the Kosher supermarket last week?
If you don’t get the point instantaneously you’re part of the problem, or at least you’ve probably spent too much time watching, reading and listening to the BBC… which may, of course, amount to the same thing.
It beggars belief. Abbas’s Palestinian Authority glorifies terrorism as a matter of policy. Countless squares and streets in the areas that he controls have been named after terrorists who have slaughtered men, women and children.
It is not in any way a cute point, but if the people who murdered the journalists at Charlie Hebdo and the Jews in the Kosher supermarket had been Palestinians, and the civilians they had murdered had been Israelis, Abbas would have already named a square after them.
It is the grossest expression of opportunism for Abbas to be in Paris for the demonstration at all. He’s there because he’s worried that terrorism has been given a bad name, not because he opposes it.
As for the clowns who invited him, well, it’s just another illustration of our total lack of seriousness. But, by now, who could be surprised by that?
NEW INFORMATION about Abbas and Bibi that changes the whole picture.
IF COMMENTS BELOW ARE ACCURATE, ONE CAN ONLY FUME ABOUT HOLLANDE’S MACHINATIONS AND DESPAIR AT ISRAEL’S ISOLATION, EVEN ON THIS DAY, AFTER AN ISLAMIC POGROM AT A KOSHER GROCERY IN FRANCE. THE FUTURE LOOKS BLEAK FOR FRENCH JEWS.
Reports (Israeli press in election cycle): Elysee Palace did not “want” Bibi there; he attended as Lieberman and Bennett were going; then the Palace invited Abbas and publicized his meeting with Pres Hollande at the Palace. At march, Bibi was not initially placed in front. Finally, French President + officials left Grand Synagogue before bibi spoke…More fuel for your anger
A UNIQUE DAY THAT MADE HISTORY
Exhilarating Day in France Marred by massive French Intelligence failures and America Going AWOL, Insulting France.
2,000,000 marching arm in arm for unity and freedom. One could not help being inspired. I was glued to the TV and had goose bumps. Humanity at its best and I admired this French turnout — THE FRENCH AT THEIR BEST — the largest ever MARCH in modern French history. But then doubts and questions interrupted this temporary utopia….
I had lunch with someone who was enraged that Abbas appeared in the front row of the massive Paris Rally. I wasn’t sure how to react. France had just voted for a Palestinian state….so maybe this was a thank you from Abbas or more likely a …read more
