Abbas Reinstates a Radical Political Doctrine

By Lt. Col. (ret.) Jonathan D. Halevi, JCPA

Mahmoud Abbas, chairman of the Palestinian Authority and leader of the PLO and the Fatah movement, presented a radical political doctrine in his speech on January 4, 2013, honoring the anniversary of Fatah’s establishment. The messages Abbas conveys express the political and national vision that he bequeaths to the Palestinian people.

In his speech Abbas avoids all mention of a historic compromise with Israel that would bring the conflict to an end. Nor does he mention the land-for-peace formula or the establishment of a Palestinian state beside Israel. Instead, Abbas chose to reemphasize that the Palestinian people remain on the path of struggle to realize “the dream of return” of the Palestinian refugees and their millions of descendants.

Abbas pledged to continue the path of struggle of previous Palestinian leaders, mentioning the Mufti of Jerusalem, Hajj Amin al-Husseini, who forged a strategic alliance with Nazi Germany, and heads of Palestinian terror organizations who were directly responsible for the murder of thousands of Israeli civilians. All are equal and suitable partners in the Palestinian struggle, and their ideological platform, even if it is terrorist and/or radical-Islamist, is a source of inspiration for the Palestinian people.

In honor of the anniversary of the founding of the Fatah movement, which is headed by Mahmoud Abbas, at the end of December the al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, the military arm of Fatah, held parades of armed men in the city of Hebron, the town of Bani Na’im, and the Kalandia refugee camp just north of Jerusalem. In Hebron and Bani Na’im, scores of activists armed with assault rifles participated.

Anyone who expected that Abbas would follow a more moderate course after the UN General Assembly resolution of November 29, 2012, upgrading the status of the PLO’s Observer Mission to that of an observer state, was undoubtedly disappointed with Abbas’ remarks. He was not preparing the Palestinian people for making peace, but rather reverting to rhetoric perpetuating and even escalating the conflict.

    And you believe that the solution is the final solution?
    Remind me of a doctrine ,and you remind me of someone. Both of them couldn’t make it. You are down to Ahamedinejad level.
    Your post is an icitement for genocide. Not acceptable. Could even be considered a felony in a court of law.
    Radicals, being Jews, Muslims Chrisitians or any others,always brought misery and bloodshed.
    Think of a more productive solution.

    A nation split into pieces, and afflicted by tumors of leftist movements,

    My mother told me many years ago:” The arabs will never make it as long as they are split. And we the Jews, will never make it as long as we are not unite”
    And the problem is she told me, “That when a Jew moves to a new village, he immediately builds to Beit Knessetes, one will be his, and the other one he will never but never set a foot in.”
    Conclusion: No light at the end of the tunnel,it is totally dark over there.
    I yet have to see anyone of you trigger happy or otherwise guys comes up with a solution? or at least some basic idea.
    I addmit, I don’t think that in our present state of mind a peace is reachable.
    Ben Gurion had the perfect solution for now: “It doesn’t matter what the Goyim are saying, It only matters what the Yehudim are doing”.

    I is truly fascinating how we self decive. We allow that elements to cuild over our Temple Mount, nothing less and the Islamics clearly call fo a Judenrein state, joining most other such entities part of Ismal.
    We cannot pray in Temple Mount and they forbid Christian or Jewis Bibles even entering their pestilent lands. We just accept the… Simply amazing.
    The people must plow under the so caled elites here, nothing left of that. Let the people elect freely, OUTSIDE the pre cooked combina, new representatives and clean all central non elected “officials”. The supreme courtiers must be ejected and new freely elected judges elected by the people. Each “law” the unJews inserted must be carefully reviewed and either removed or retained by a 2/3 majority in Parliament.

  4. When someone brags about killing, stealing and lies about history, how come the West doesn’t catch on? Abbas is the antithesis to Western Civilization, which the Jews helped found. He has no Western values, only the retarded views of an Islamic body that refuses to grow up. Horse sense does not exist in their milieu, although I expect many Muslims have it but would be killed if they voiced it.

    Who would you rather live next to, one of the most successful civilizations humanity has produced or a people who are determined to steal it? Not so long ago a Muslim cleric in Cairo preached to his followers to go on worldwide jihad because their coffers were empty. In his case, Islam is the excuse to kill and steal. To them there is no better booty than that they have forcibly taken from another people. Jihad is so much more fun than working, you know?

  5. Abbas leaves no room for any modification or compromise on the part of Israel or all Jews or, indeed, all non Muslims.

    The disease of Islam must be eradicated or there will never be any peace on this planet.

    What you say is correct.

    Only, I do not understand why that terrorist leader, Holocaust Denier, financier of the 1972 Munich Olympics massacre of Israeli athletes, was never eliminated by Mossad. They had every chance to “get rid of the swine”
    Why do Israelis even bother to talk to this Arafat in a suit.
    Abbas is more dangerous with his lies, than Arafat was.Arafat was a dangerous terrorist, but Abbas is the instigator of terrorism, and the world says he is a “moderate”
    He has never ever honoured one agreement with Israel.
    Why does Israel not go to the ICC and lay a charge of murder of the Israeli Olympic team?
    Unfortunately, the Arabs have the OIL, and the world is not interested in the Jews, only the OIL. so Abbas gets away with murder.
    People like Tutu refer to Israel as an apartheid state. But has he ever condemned Abbas for his comments. If a PA state is created, no Jew will be allowed to live there. Any Arab who selss land to a Jew will be executed.

    Tutu is no better than the Mufti of Jerusalem.

  7. It is all a matter of consistency.
    The Islamics are consistently clear in their intent to destroy all of us and we are consistently stupid to elect unJews that made of the Islamic murderers their “peace partners”.
    To change the paradigm one of the two must change.
    Islam will never change.
    It is us that must completely change and reject all of those that just as consistently sell us down the drain for a Nobel.

  8. Abbas Reinstates a Radical Political Doctrine

    The Muslim Arab doctrine of hatred, terrorism, murder and anti-Semitism–has always been in place[since at least the 1920’s]–it wasn’t just recently reinstated by Abu Mazen–DUH!

  9. Fanatics die to kill and not for peace.
    This is the Fanatics purpose in life.
    Area C must be annexed asap.
    BB plays with fire.
    The West is not willing to act on Syria but would be willing to destroy a democracy? Perhaps because it is made of “dangerous” JEWS!

  10. It is good the Fakestinian Mafia beast Abbas is being honest. Now the Jews can finish off these two-legged beasts and kill as many of them as possible and deport the rest of vile Nazi-like Muslim supremacists. If little Britainstan, Naziland, the Surrender Monkeys aka France, the delusional Turks, or of course the Muslim, black racist Obongo wants to do anything to punish Israel when they remove the toxic waste known as the Fakestinians from the Jewish National Homeland let them try. Is the US army whose generals who are among the worst of any major military but whose soldiers who are the real warriors,and have the upmost respect and admiration for the IDF going to follow an order from Obongo the colwardly punk to ever attack Israel? No. Now is the time to rid the toxic Fakestinians from further pollution of the Jewish National Homeland. The Fakestinians were collaborators with the Nazis in the holocaust. Now the time has come for these vile creatures to answer for their crimes.No one ever mentions how these vile beasts had their “leader” during WWII fully collaborate with the Nazis in implementing the holocaust. Instead of negotiating with Abbas , the Jews should kill him and all these modern day Nazis.

  11. It is not Abbas – throw a dog a bone – it will sure grab it!
    It is the Jews!
    A nation rejecting her reach heritage for nothingness,
    A nation unwilling to work her own fields and depending on foreigners,
    A nation split into pieces, and afflicted by tumors of leftist movements,
    A nation electing consistently political charlatans and brainless traitors as her leaders,
    A nation applying principles of “democracy” to deadly enemies-Arabs in her midst, allowing them to grow into a cancer eating away her body,
    A nation ready to tread HER land for “peace”,
    A nation having friends like the “Jews” of the exiles
    – such a “nation” has neither reason nor right to exist.
    The choice is: a dead secular Israel or a live national-democratic jewish Israel, under a strong hand.
