Palestinska myndigheten gör sitt för att spänningen vid Tempelberget skall fortsätta

Palestinska myndighetens officiella TV kanal har valt att visa en repris av en "dokumentärfilm" som påstår att höga judiska ledare försökte bränna ner Al-Aqsa moskén år 1969. I verkligheten var det en australiensisk medborgare (kristen) som anlade branden. Han arresterades omedelbart och det konstaterades senare att han hade mentala problem.
Men för de palestinska myndigheterna duger vilken lögn som helst för att hetsa befolkningen mot judarna.

PA tries to increase hatred regarding Jerusalem (PMW)
With Palestinian-Israeli tensions over Jerusalem's Old City and the Temple Mount still simmering, the Palestinian Authority has chosen to intensify Palestinian anger and hate by repeating one of its most dangerous libels - that "senior Jews of high position" planned the arson of the Al-Aqsa Mosque in 1969. In a documentary broadcast on PA TV, it was presented as fact that not only did Jews plan the arson of the Mosque but also that after the fire started Israel shut off the water supply, preventing fire fighters from efficiently putting out the fire.

The following is some of the narration from the documentary:

"From investigations conducted by the Islamic Council it became clear that there was more than one perpetrator [of the Al-Aqsa Mosque arson in 1969] and that the fire was planned by senior Jews of high position, especially since the roof can only be reached from a wooden spiral staircase located outside the Al-Aqsa building. This proves that careful, premeditated measures were taken to completely destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque. The proof is that the occupation authorities were slow to extinguish [the fire] and that the water supply to the Sanctuary (i.e., the Temple Mount) had been cut off during those hours." 
[Official PA TV, Aug. 21, 2017] 

The 1969 fire in the Mosque was started by a Christian Australian man, who was arrested immediately afterward and found to be mentally unstable.

PA TV's decision to broadcast this Al-Aqsa libel now, follows its ongoing attempts to keep Palestinian hatred of Israel simmering over the Temple Mount issue. Last month the Palestinian Authority Minister of Religious Affairs told Palestinian viewers on television that Israel was planning to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque: ...

PLO fördömer amerikanska senatorer

Efter att senatens utrikeskommitté röstat för att USA inte skall betala stöd till de palestinska myndigheterna så länge dessa betalar lön till terrorister som angriper Israel har PLO gett ett uttalande där de fördömer senatorerna.
För PLO är det en självklarhet att alla palestinier som dödar judar skall belönas och få lön av myndigheterna så länge de lever.

Mahmoud Abbas and PLO condemn US Senators (PMW)

The following is the translation of the article posted on the Facebook page of the Fatah Movement's Bethlehem Branch, Aug. 13, 2017, about the PLO decision.

"The PLO Executive Committee, led by [PA President] Mahmoud Abbas, met at the [PA's] presidential headquarters and discussed the political developments...
The [PLO] Executive Committee condemned the legislators of the American Congress and their positions towards the Palestinian people... and sees the American Senate Committee on Foreign Relations' approval of stopping American aid to the PA - if it does not stop the aid to the families of the Martyrs (Shahids) and prisoners - as an unacceptable act that will negatively affect everything that is connected to the Palestinians' rights, and particularly their right to life and protection from the occupation army's violations, and [from] the summary executions that it carries out in the streets and military checkpoints of the West Bank, including occupied East Jerusalem. [The Executive Committee] emphasized the rejection of this [American] extortion and the rejection of using the tool of financial aid to extract political concessions.
[The Executive Committee] emphasized that the PLO will continue its national, moral, and humanitarian responsibility towards the occupation's victims, the victims of the organized state terror, and the victims of the herds of settlers and their terror organizations, which the government of Israel supports and provides with protection and patronage, with the blessings of the legislators of the American Congress...
The [PLO] Executive Committee sent a blessing of appreciation and pride to the freedom prisoners of war for their legendary stance, and emphasized that their release is at the top of its agenda."

Hamas bygger attacktunnlar under bostadshus

IDF har publicerat uppgifter som visar att Hamas bygger attacktunnlar som har sina öppningar i bostadshus i Gaza.
 Som vanligt använder Hamas civila som sköldar för sin verksamhet.

Hamas denies existence of tunnels under civilian buildings (The Times of Israel)
Though IDF provided exact coordinates for entrances into passageways, terror group says claim is part of plan to legitimize targeting innocents

The Hamas terror group on Monday denied Israeli allegations that it has built attack tunnels entrances under the homes of Gazan civilians, claiming that the Israeli accusation is meant to lay the groundwork for attacks against residential buildings in any future conflict.

On Wednesday, the head of the IDF’s Southern Command, Maj. Gen. Eyal Zamir, revealed the location of two alleged Hamas tunnel sites buried underneath an apartment building and a family home in the northern Gaza Strip, and threatened to blow up both structures despite a desire to avoid civilian casualties.

MÅNADSRAPPORT - AUGUSTI 2017 (Europeiska koalitionen för Israel)

"Juli är traditionellt en semestermånad i norra Europa och Europaparlamentet håller paus från mitten av juli till början av september. Men Israels fiender tar ingen semester. I fjol godkändes en katastrofal FN-resolution mot staten Israel dagen före julafton när de flesta redan hade lämnat sina kontor och åkt på jullov.

Som Israels vänner behöver vi hela tiden hålla oss beredda och alerta. Senaste månad visade sig detta vara av största vikt när kampen om Tempelberget i Jerusalem hettade till och krävde en omedelbar reaktion från vår sida samtidigt som ECI:s byrå i Helsingfors officiellt höll semesterstängt.
Det här är vad som hände. ..."

Rapport från Hamas sommarläger för ungdomar

Varje år ordnar Hamas sommarläger för barn och ungdomar där ungdomarna mer eller mindre hjärntvättas för att bli soldater åt Hamas och islam och lära sig hata judarna.

Motto Of Hamas Summer Camps This Year: 'Marching On Jerusalem'; Their Goal: To Train The Generation That Will Liberate Palestine, Jerusalem (MEMRI)
The Goal Of The Summer Camps: Training The Generation That Will Lead The Campaign Of Liberation
The camps' director in the northern Gaza Strip, Zaki Al-Sharif, explained that their goal is to raise "a special, aware generation which will lead the decisive campaign of liberation against the Zionist enemy." He added that all branches of Hamas share the desire to inculcate in the youth the Islamic faith and the national military and security doctrine, and to consolidate the fundamental Palestinian principles, which are "liberating the prisoners as well as the destination of the Prophet's Night Journey [i.e., Jerusalem], and the return of the refugees."[8] The head of the camps committee in the western Gaza Strip, Dr. Na'im Al-Baroud, defined the camps' goal this year as "inculcating the value of resistance and liberation of Palestine, with Jerusalem as its capital."[9] At the camps' opening ceremony, Dr. Nasim Yasin, the deputy head of the Palestinian Clerics Association in Gaza and a member of the International Union of Muslim Scholars, stressed the importance of religious education for the sake of liberating Jerusalem and Palestine: "Liberation will be achieved only by youths who are educated in mosques. Liberation requires training generations. We are raising this generation based on the Quran, so that it carry out the mission entrusted to it, [including] the return to Jerusalem, the destination of the Prophet's Night Journey."[10]

Explaining the rationale behind the camps' motto, Hamas's former education minister, Osama Al-Muzaini, said: "Jerusalem is the compass of the Palestinian cause and the central issue of the conflict with the occupier... It is part of the Islamic faith, and its liberation is first a religious duty and then a national one." He added that the camps' goal is "to train the generation of victory and liberation, which will have the honor of liberating Jerusalem and uprooting the occupation.

Hamas Summer Camp Graduation in Gaza: Teen Cadets Demonstrate Military Training, "Capture" Israeli Soldier
At the graduation ceremony of a Hamas summer camp in Rafah, Gaza, teen cadets demonstrate military-style training, brandish weapons, and simulate the storming of an Israeli army outpost. One of the cadets "captures" a fellow cadet dressed in Israeli army fatigues and hauls him back into a tunnel. A teen announcer says that "the grandchildren of apes and pigs" had prevented the call for prayer at the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Footage from the ceremony of the "Knights of Palestine" camp was posted on the Internet on July 31.
Teen Announcer: ''Joy filled our chests and our hearts, when we heard that the call for prayer has been restored to the Al-Aqsa Mosque, after the grandchildren of apes and pigs prevented it from being heard. Oh our wise leadership, from this moment on, we are your soldiers.''

Utmaningar i det palestinska samhället

Det finns flera orsaker till att den palestinska befolkningen inte kan utveckla en normal demokrati på sina självstyrelseområden.
Omkring 30 % av befolkningen har under de senaste åren sagt sig understöda Hamas som i praktiken styr Gaza.
För några dagar sedan fick vi åter en gång ett exempel på vad Hamas står för.
Hamas firade då 16-årsdagen av terrorattacken mot Sbarro pizzeria i Jerusalem. I självmordsattacken dödades 15 israeler av dem 7 barn omkring 130 personer skadades. "Attacken fyllde palestinierna med glädje och massorna gick ut på gatorna hurrade och delade ut godsaker, skriver Hamas på en av sina internetsidor.(Website of Hamas’ Al-Aqsa Channel, Aug. 9, 2017)

De palestinska  myndigheterna å sin sida hedrade terroristen som utförde terrorattacken en militärbegravning år 2014.

Handlingar som inte har något med demokrati och normal samhällsutveckling att göra.

Abbas och Fatah som representerar det "moderata" alternativet till Hamas (med ungefär lika stort understöd bland befolkningen) styr västbanken trots att Abbas mandat gått ut för 8 år sedan.
Abbas ser till att kritik mot honom tystas ner. Det rapporteras att bara den senaste månaden har 30 webbsidor stängts av myndigheterna. Inte  precis något som hjälper den demokratiska utvecklingen på traven.

Förutsättningar för en bra framtid för palestinierna finns men goda ledare saknas, ungefär så skriver  Gershon Baskin
