While terrorist organisations Hamas and Hezbollah have condemned the attacks in Paris, the Palestinian Authority has blamed Israel for them. The PA accused Israel of being behind the Paris attacks using both its newspaper and the official Facebook page of Fatah.
A Sunday opinion piece in the official Palestinian Authority daily al-Hayat al-Jadida blamed Israel’s Mossad intelligence agency suggesting they were orchestrated in order to undermine new European moves promoting a two-state solution and providing for the clear labeling of produce from Israeli West Bank settlements.
The op-ed was translated by Palestinian Media Watch, a media monitoring group.
“It is not a coincidence that human blood was exploded in Paris at the same time that certain European sanctions are beginning to be implemented against settlement products, and while France leads Europe in advising the [UN] Security Council that will implement the two-state solution, Palestine and Israel — which the Israelis see as a warning of sudden danger coming from the direction of Europe, where the Zionist, occupying, settling endeavor was born…” the piece states.
“The wise and correct thing is to look for who benefits,” the op-ed continues. “In short: They need to search the last place reached by the octopus arms of the Mossad… It is clear that its ‘Mossad’ will burn Beirut and Paris in order to achieve [Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu’s goals. He, who challenged the master of the White House, hides in his soul enough evil to burn the world.”
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’s political party, Fatah, has also posted anti-Israel cartoons on its Facebook page.
The cartoons imply that Israel – and the Jews – were behind the terrorist attacks that took place in Paris at the weekend.
One drawing depicts Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu spying on Paris alongside an ISIS extremist, while another image shows a matchbox with ‘terrorism’ written on the front containing an ‘ISIS’ match and a ‘Jewish’ match.
