Abbas uppmanar till våld på palestinsk TV

19 gånger på 3 dagar har det här videoklippet visats på de palestinska myndigheternas TV-kanal.
Det är Abbas som uppmanar palestinierna att med alla medel försvara Al-Aqsa moskén.
Abbas lyckades få till stånd en hel del oroligheter, två israeler har dödats i en terrorattack och en palestinsk yngling som kastade brandbomber sköts av israeliska soldater.


Palestinian Authority TV produced a short video of Mahmoud Abbas calling for Palestinians to prevent "in any way" Jews from going to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Significantly, PA TV then broadcast it 19 times in 3 days. For this video PA TV chose the part of Abbas' speech of Oct. 17 in which he implicitly calls for Jerusalem's Arabs to use violence against Israelis. Jews' presence at the site which is holy to Jews and Muslims, Abbas said, "defiles" the Islamic holy site and must prevented "in any way." Palestinian Media Watch has reported that expressions like "in any way" and "using all means" are common PA euphemisms for various degrees of violence and terror:

“It's not enough for us to say: ‘There are those carrying out Ribat’ (religious conflict / war over land claimed to be Islamic). We must all carry out Ribat in the Al-Aqsa [Mosque]. It's not enough for us to say: ‘The settlers have arrived [at the Mosque]’. They have come, and they must not come to the Sanctuary (i.e., Temple Mount). We have to prevent them, in any way whatsoever, from entering the Sanctuary. This is our Sanctuary, our Al-Aqsa and our Church [of the Holy Sepulchre]. They have no right to enter it. They have no right to defile it. We must prevent them. Let us stand before them with chests bared to protect our holy places.” [Official PA TV, Oct. 17-19, 2014]
