Inget fördömande från Abbas

36 timmar efter söndagens terrorattack som dödade fyra judiska ungdomar har palestiniernas ledare Abbas ännu inte fördömt attacken.
En ledare i Jerusalem Post behandlar detta tema.
The failure by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to condemn the attack by Monday night – more than 36 hours since it took place – is part of a culture of hate, violence and intransigence. A “peace partner” does not remain silent when innocent 20-year-olds are deliberately run down by a truck on a sunny Sunday afternoon in Jerusalem. A real peace partner speaks up, shouts and condemns.

But maybe that is the difference between Israel and the PA. Following the rare few instances of Jewish terrorism – like the Duma arson attack in 2015 that killed three members of the Dawabshe family – every single Israeli politician from across the spectrum condemned it in the harshest of terms. Our “peace partners” apparently don’t know how.

Is antisemitism intractable? Is it an aggressive disease that cannot be cured? We hope not. But either way, we must reconcile ourselves to it, and do everything in our power to defend ourselves against it.

"Abbas wrote to the parents of the attacker last year that “we see in her a martyr who watered the pure earth of Palestine with her blood.”"
