Why Mahmoud Abbas is Fatah
Fatah is the ruling Party of the Palestinian Authority (PA). It is ruled by one man.
Little is known about this Party. Much is known about the man who heads it.
Many in the West who think they know a thing or two about the Arab-Israel conflict know next-to-nothing about Fatah. They don't even know what the name, Fatah, means.
To understand what the word, Fatah, means in Arabic, is to understand why it exists. The word Fatah means, "conquest" ("Profile: Fatah Palestinian movement", bbc, June 16, 2011). Fatah exists to conquer and destroy the Jewish state of Israel.
Mahmoud Abbas is the man who heads Fatah. He's spent a life-time belittling and lying about Jews and the Jewish state. To understand what this man is all about, you need to understand only two things.
First, he wrote a PhD dissertation that denies the Holocaust killed 6 million Jews (Hillel Fendell, "Report: Abbas Holocaust-denial dissertation widely taught in PA", arutzsheva, April 28, 2011). This dissertation denies gas chambers were used to kill Jews (ibid). It claims there was an agreement between Hitler's Nazis and the leaders of the Zionist movement whereby Zionist leaders agreed not to complain about the murder of Jews if the Germans guaranteed immigration to the then-Palestine (ibid).
These claims are false. The proofs Abbas offers are false (ibid).
Abbas didn't care about truth when he wrote this document. He cared about Holocaust denial.
The second thing you need to know about Abbas is that, as stated above, he heads Fatah. If he started out belittling the murder of Jews, he now heads a movement that's dedicated to facilitating actions that could lead to more Jew-killing.
Take a look at a press release from Abbas' Fatah. The website, elderzyion, found it . It's dated January 28, 2018. I have not changed a word. It reveals what Fatah--and its head--are all about:
In the name of Allah the Most Gracious the Most Merciful ....
O rebellious rebels in the face of the occupiers in all parts of the occupied land, angered in the face of the occupiers and gangs of settlers and we do not have pity on them until we have defeated them from the land of Isra (sic) and resisters. Fatah is the owner of the first bullet, which was fired for the sake of Jerusalem and the return of the refugees with the unforgettable blood of martyrs and the wounded and the victim, a thorn in the throat of all the losers since its inception, because its goal is the liberation and the establishment of the state of Palestine.
The Fatah Movement has consistently rejected any violation of the rights of our people baptized by massive sacrifices based on the resolutions of international legitimacy and international law, foremost of which is the right of return of refugees, the right to self-determination and the establishment of an independent and sovereign Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital and its rejection of the American position against the rights of our people, The eternal right of our independent Palestinian state or an attempt to violate the right of sacred return through the rumors about the resettlement and the severance of aid funds for UNRWA the witness to uprooting our people from their homes and cities They were defeated by Zionist gangs and deported to exile...
- Tuesday 30/1/2018 will be a day of solidarity with the Palestinian people within the territories occupied in 1948, which will involve marches in all towns and cities and points of contact with the occupation .
- Friday February 2, 2018 is a day of popular anger in all the occupied territories and in the refugee camps and Diaspora and Arab and Islamic capitals and capitals of the world to emphasize that Jerusalem will be only the eternal capital of the independent state of Palestine .
...It is a revolution until victory.
At times, this press release seems almost unreadable according to Western standards of composition. It's closer to a string of propaganda phrases strung together in sometimes partially-formed run-on sentences than a professional news release.
Mahmoud Abbas is no peace partner for anyone Jewish. He's a warmonger, a Jew-hater and a racist. As the head of this movement, Fatah, he's responsible for this press release--and for hundreds like it that have preceded it. This press release speaks for him.
As this press release says, Abbas wants rage ("a day of popular anger") against the Jew. He wants upheaval. He wants "victory" against the Jewish Israel.
He's a man on a mission. That mission is not peace. It's Fatah--the total Islamic conquest of the Jewish state.
