Yesterday, Fatah, headed by Abbas, posted the following threat to Israelis: “Sons of Zion, this is an oath to the Lord of the Heavens: Prepare all the bags you can for your body parts” [Facebook, “Fatah – The Main Page,” July 7, 2014].
Two days ago, Fatah posted a similar threat with a picture of burning houses: “The sons of Fatah will turn your settlements into balls of fire and increase your horror”
[Facebook, “Fatah – The Main Page,”July 5, 2014].
Earlier this month, Fatah posted a poem including the line “We wish for the blood to become rivers”: “The source of terrorism is the Zionist… The Zionist, by Allah, is treacherous O settler, O malicious one, Your time has ended.. O Arabs, enough betrayal: We wish for the blood to become rivers… This homeland wants [your] rage –
It does not want you to wait.” [Facebook, “Fatah – The Main Page,” July 2, 2014].
Last week, Palestinian Media Watch exposed similar rhetoric inciting to violence used by Fatah: “Blood demands blood; millions of Martyrs (Shahids) are marching to Jerusalem.” [Facebook, “Fatah – The Main Page,” July 3, 2014] Similarly: “An oath in the name of the Lord of the Universe, O sons of Zion: blood for blood.” [Facebook, “Fatah – The Main Page,” July 1, 2014].
